Inspiration on a Monday: Bonjour Tristesse - Elsa


I love this film - not just for the story and location - filmed on the Cote de Azur - but for Elsa - the "brilliant" flame of Cecile's father, Raymond. In the 1957 film she is played by Mylene Demongeot - an actress that I was unaware of until I saw the film.

This flim, and Elsa's wardrobe make it feel like summer already.  I am sorry there are not more photos showing her amazing dresses.  Costuming and wardrobe were by Hope Bryce (costume coordinator) and May Walding (wardrobe)

Do you have any pictures on the dress Elsa wore that she said was one of Anne Larsen's designs? It was blue I think, tight (almost like a corset) on top and fuller/puffy on the bottom and it has straps, maybe two fingers thick? I can't find a picture of it and I want to find a dress like that!

Crystal Xo - I have tried to find the dress you are talking about before. To find all the images that I used I searched with Google images but couldn't find any of that dress. It's a shame but there are not too many still shots taken of her.
