Thank Heaven For Little Gene
Today Gene models an outfit worn by Leslie Caron in the famous MGM musical, “Gigi,” released in 1958. Directed by Vincente Minnelli, it is considered the last of the famous MGM musicals made under the Arthur Freed unit (think “Meet Me In St. Louis,” “Singin’ in the Rain,” and “Easter Parade,” and then you’ll get an idea of the caliber of talent that we’re talking about here!). Costumes were by the legendary Cecil Beaton. The outfit being modeled by Gene is a very accurate reproduction by the team at Madame Alexander’s.
