The Pink Panther (1963)

1960s Fasion in Film The Pink Panther

Copyright © 1963 Metro – Goldwyn – Mayer Studio’s

Staring 1960s fashion model Capucine who worked for fashion houses such as Givenchy and Christian Dior, and Hollywood beauty Claudia Cardinale this film was bound to be sartorially pleasing. Throw in designs by Yves Saint Laurent and you have a winner.

With Claudia Cardinale playing Princess Dala whose father the Shah of Lugash, gifts her a pink Diamond as a child, the largest of its kind in the world, the glamour needed to be appropriate. She is shown in rather simple yet elegant dresses drawn in at the waist and including a figure hugging pencil skirt, classic pearls and fur hats, bejeweled dresses, gold and silk drapery and Burkah style gowns. The wardrobe fit for an Arabian princess.
