Cinema Connection--Revlon Inspired by 1932's SHANGHAI EXPRESS


Taken straight from the pages of November's Vogue, Revlon's Fall 2011 advertising campaign is clearly borrowing more than a just a bit of inspiration from Marlene Dietrich and Josef von Sternberg's styling in Shanghai Express.  Yet another example of classic cinema continuing to influence the fashion and beauty industries today.  Take a look for yourself.

Thanks to Karen Noske of Movie Star Makeover for sharing the similarity with me!

Thanks for the quick work, Kimberly! It's pretty amazing, isn't it?? But it was YOU who alerted me to Shanghai Express, which is now on my 'must-see' list. So many movies....
Love, Kay (Karen) Noske

It's a must see, Kay. I'm not even doing it justice here, if you can believe it. Unfortunately, I discovered it's not yet available on DVD, so be sure to set TCM's online schedule to alert you by email when it's on next! Thanks again for your eagle eyes. What amazing timing!
