On day four of Holiday Fashion Week, we can't help but remember the quintessential Christmas movie, "It's a Wonderful Life."
This all-time favorite is one of Jimmy Stewart’s best, and is a great time capsule of the styles of the day. At one point, actress Donna Reed wears a gorgeous long black dress with a lace neck, but the film really comes alive with the finest of 1940s fashion during a party scene, when Reed’s character dances in a fun, frilly and layered evening dress—perhaps the most memorable outfit in the movie.
Here, our model remembers Reed's holiday dance scene as she winds her way through a classic old movie theater wearing her best party dresses and jewels. —Christa Martin and Elizabeth Limbach
