Yesterday marked the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic.
I’ve always been fascinated (and horrified) by Titanic’s story. The idea that so many lives perished when there were COUNTLESS instances where they could have been saved (why did the crow’s nest not have binoculars!) is just baffling to me.
On Saturday night me and a friend (who I was mutually obsessed with Titanic 14 years ago when the movie was released) went to see it again in theatres. The eerie part was that because we went in the evening and because of the time difference, as we were watching the titanic sink on screen the same thing was happening at EXACTLY that same time 100 years earlier. It was a bit bone chilling.
But on to the more frivolous part of this post.
The one thing I noticed as I re watched the movie is that I’m still just as enamored by all the BEAUTIFUL dresses Kate Winslet wore as Rose. The lines, detailing, materials, colours, absolutely everything about those dresses makes me want to live in the early 20th century (but that desire stops there).
Since it would look silly to walk down the street wearing replicas of the gowns from Titanic, here are some similar dresses and looks I put together that have a modern twist.
Apologies for the poor quality of the movie stills. Obligatory note: movie stills are copyright 20th Century Fox et all).
Which dress from Titanic is your favourite?
