History:
Lady of Shanghai, and Shanghai Express were film greats of the 1930's and 1940's, with some of our favorite leading ladies such as Rita Hayworth, Marlene Dietrich, and Chinese pre-code princess Anna May Wong. Seductive femme fetales and murder mysteries were a common theme among the film noir era of Old Hollywood. Oriental influence was seen in both film and fashion of the 1940's in beautiful forms, blending Asian style inspiration and Art Deco. It was common for silk and satin dressing gowns of the 1930s & 1940s to be adorned with belts featuring crystal motifs, delicate in shape & size. Rita Hayworth often wore belts to embellish her long gowns.
