I Wanna Dress Like: “Carmen Jones”

Carmen Jones” is one of my favorite films because the title character, played by Dorothy Dandridge, has impeccable style and great one-liners. Carmen wore this saucy and sexy outfit for much of the first half of the movie as she rebelled against conventional norms. Her look was rather simple, just a pencil skirt and off-the-shoulder blouse, but her accessories make it much more interesting. Now all you need is the right attitude and walk.
