Bebe Baby

A representation of the gown Bebe Daniels wore in the opening scene of 42nd Street, designed by Orry Kelly. This gown’s fabulous collar with extended shoulders is a classic example of the space look that was just starting to develop, with Flash Gordon being a popular comic and then “film serial” of the time.

Felt bats and silk chiffon. Hand painted detail.
