Sweet On Sweater
BLT (Before Lana Turner) movie stars appeared in satin gowns with trains—or a few scraps of expensive lace. Girls-who-never-left-home wore a shapeless woolen something called a sweater. But ALT (you figure it out) things changed. You can still spot a star in silk, but you’re more likely to see her in a sweater—and anything but shapeless! The sweater today is all things to all girls—a touch of childhood or a dash of sex-appeal. Most stars, like most girls, wear them because they are pretty and practical and mixable—and because, as these photographs show—you can go anywhere in a sweater!
