This is a film I was a total latecomer to, and it did not disappoint. The film was incredible, the songs poetic and funny, and reading the trivia on the film also shaped it as a huge production and Barbra as the diva. But she really is the full centre of the film and her costar is it’s fashion. Here are a few of my favourites!
This was an amazing number and what Fanny Brice did is hilarious! She put her own spin on the finale number and pretended to be a pregnant bride with plenty of tongue in cheek humour. This dress is beautiful and the backup dancers are beautiful too! The whole thing is amazing.
At the start of the film Fanny shows up in Full Leopard print and looks so classy. Special shout out to the hair/makeup/nails team for this film as it was a supporting actress in this film! This whole ensemble is beautiful and old Hollywood with a touch of Broadway.
She goes through a makeover halfway through the film after becoming a mother and looks so young and adorable! This scene is when she’s learned some bad news and has to walk out in front of reporters after a show. She takes off her dowdy coat to reveal this lemon yellow baby doll dress and a lot of leg. Its an amazing scene and is very poignant.
This is a really cute number where she sings about Nick Arnstein, who is a gambler but very romantic. She is silly and fun in this number and her outfit is great.
She wears this in the last scene of the film, and it is a poignant number. She is in a very classy black outfit and it is a somber end to a film that takes you to the highs and lows. This is my favourite look of hers, and her makeup and nails are impeccable.
Special shoutout to Omar Sharif as Nick Arnstein, who is super handsome in this film and plays the part so well!
