Classic Movie Recommendation

Last night, I watched one of my favorite musicals, Gypsy. The movie was based on a Broadway hit, which was adapted from the book, Gypsy: A memoir by Gypsy Rose Lee. It's about an aggressive stage mom, Rose, her two girls, June and Rose Louise. Rose's dream is for her children to become vaudeville stars and she does whatever it takes for the dream to become a reality. Once the talented Baby June leaves the family to break into Broadway and escape Mama, Mama focuses in on the less talented Louise. Through misunderstandings, comical, and sad situations, Louise becomes know as the vivacious infamous burlesque dancer, Gypsy Rose Lee.

The soundtrack and costumes are amazing. I love the sparkle, glamour, and lady-like elements of the costumes. My favorite dress will always be the bright white sparkly burlesque costume paired the white gloves and gorgeous high heels.
