Chokers saw a revival during WWII, when the trend became a feminine symbol of power. In 1944, Life Magazine even ran a famous spread of actresses modeling the accessory, nicknaming them “colliers de chien” or “dog collars.” The revival in popularity began to spread globally, with women embellishing chokers with lace, cameos, pearls, and even diamonds. Stars are a representation of the golden era that was Old Hollywood, as a symbol of the shining starlets that once graced the silver screen. Star shapes were often seen in the fashions on film, and made a special statement in one film favorite in particular, Ziegfeld Girl (1941).
