Every other morning I put the “Good Morning” video on youtube from the “Singing in the Rain” for Syliva and then I usually click around wherever youtube takes me. Sylvia seems to be pretty interested. Today I ended up with the Barbara Streisand’s “Don’t Rain on my Parade” and couldn’t help noticing yet another orange inspiration. And just how well it looks with mink.
I thought that this scene from the “Funny Girl” had a similar vibe with the “Show Me” number from my “Fair Lady.” And then watching them one after another made me pay attention how in both scenes these ladies are breaking away from something; they are represented as fighters. It looks as if the orange is brought in to emphasize their wilderness and conquering moods. Don’t you think so?
Also from what I understand this icy, pale salmon color that Audrey is wearing would be considered extremely bold for the Edwardian times she lives in.
