February 23, 1939


  1. Bette's dress is hilarious! She looks like she's ready to take flight, picking Spencer up with her talons on the way up and out of there.
    Great pics Claros!

  2. Her dress does look insane, but was considered the height of fashion when she wore it. It was brown net with bird of paradise feathers.

    The first time she won an Oscar she was roundly criticized because she sort of thumbed her nose at the establishment by wearing a dowdy print dress. One fashion reporter with Photoplay magazine cornered her in the ladies' room and tore her a new one.
