gossamer dress that Faye Dunaway wore in The Towering Inferno (1974.) For, literally, forty years, I have been obsessed with her in that dress! I just never got over my love for the layers of chiffon blowing and billowing in the windy conditions of the top of The Glass Tower. Today, I'm going to toss out a few more pictures of her in the gown along with some other gowns and negligees that have caught my eye in the meantime.
At times she seemed to be floating around rather than merely walking.
The Poseidon Adventure (1972) was shown on TV for the first time and I saw more of it, this time underwater (and trust me, in Shelley Winters' case there was plenty!! LOL)
Merle Oberon offers us some sheer brilliance.
tribute to headpieces a couple of years back!
Senta Berger in patterned chiffon, oversized earrings (possibly the understatement of the century!) and an up 'do. Do yourself a favor and check her out in this if you ever get the chance!
Stella Stevens radiates in a Moss Mabry gown from 1968's How to Save a Marraige and Ruin Your Life.
Walk on the Wild Side (1960), whose goddess-y look seems to have inspired Towering Inferno designer Paul Zastupnevich when it came to Faye Dunaway.
Ava Gardner and billowing fabric. From publicity for the 1956 film Bhowani Junction, the first one is lovely...
