“Oh Rita, what are you wearing?”

The Lady From Shanghai, in addition to being one crazy film-noir, is one massive love letter to Rita Hayworth from her then-husband Orson Welles. Her often-bikini clad body and her wardrobe become an essential part of the movie, symbolizing her role as a seductress and a desperate woman. She also brings to fashion a style that needs to come back: the sexy sea captain. Seriously, what other actress could get away with this ensemble?

Only you Rita, only you.

Because I am so fixated on Rita’s gorgeous yet somewhat ridiculous outfits in The Lady From Shanghai, here is a slideshow of some of her other attire from the movie.
