Have a meet-cute with romantic comedies. They’re what to watch over the holidays, or anytime that you need a laugh (or a good cry), or a little coaching. A smart romantic comedy offers wisdom as well as snappy lines (and maybe a Nancy Meyers kitchen). Jane’s Vanity gets comfortable for a girlfriend evening at the movies. Join us to observe lingerie on the big screen.
In Moonstruck, Cher blossoms before our eyes as she prepares for a date to the opera. First the beauty parlor, then the dress shop At home, she whiles away the afternoon in a beautiful slip. Set your own scene in Marjolaine’s Imprimè Fleur Silk Chemise in black silk patterned with flowers and hummingbirds, lavishly appliqued in corded lace.
When in doubt, choose a gown. Or several. That's the message from Crazy Rich Asians. Demolish the competition in something slinky yet regal such as Vannina Vesperini’s Carla Silk Gown in pale blue stretch silk with lace-up back, high side slit, and blush lace applique. And have at the ready Olivia Von Halle’s Perminova Navy Silk Gown with its cross-over plunging deep back and dramatic train.
Perhaps only Ingrid Bergman could carry off a romantic first meeting with Cary Grant wearing only face cream and a pretty robe. That she does in Indistreet. Which robe would it be? We choose Studio Pia’s Petra Jungle Silk Robe for its simple kimono style and its devastating color.
A bra steals the scene in Something’s Gotta Give, when Diane Keaton becomes detached from her turtle-neck sweater. Emulate its lacy pink with Gilda & Pearl’s Rose Illusion Lingerie Set in shaped silk demi-cup with scalloped lace trim.
Pajamas were never quite the same after It Happened One Night. Clark Gable rocked the 1930s when he gallantly shared his PJs with Claudette Colbert. Whether you are an escaped heiress or a wisecracking journalist, you will love Olivia Von Halle’s Lila Amity Silk Pajama and its classic tie-print on a navy background.
The viewer must look quickly in Working GIrl to catch a glimpse of Melanie Griffith vacuuming the carpet in nothing but panties and heels. We say hooray for working girls and suggest Karolina Laskowska’s spectacular Thalia Corded Lace Highwaisted Panty for doing the housework.
Happy endings to everyone--from Jane’s Vanity.
