...THANK YOU, MARIA!!!!

...For the AWESOME new header pic! It was kinda tough to change up from the 'Original' G-ology header pic, which will always be a favorite (will still be my avatar...) - but the new one is another favorite of mine (Gin just looks angelic in this one...), and now in killer color by Maria of the 'Let Yourself Go' blog...
If you are a Ginger / Fred fan, do yourself a favor and follow that site...Maria has done an outstanding job of adding color to some great pics!

...also, I will probably be 'wrapping up' the results of the first G-ology Poll in a day or so, when I can give it sufficient time... It was good to know each entry got significant votes, which helped me to feel better that I picked some of the best ones...

  2. Oh, Jwalker, there was no need to thank me in a post. You made me blush. Thanks a lot for use it and yeah, looks really nice against the green background of your blog.

  4. It's from Roberta, so probably in '34 or '35.

  5. ...More specifically, the outfit was used in the Roberta number 'I Won't Dance' 1935.
    I think her hair is a bit different in the pic than in the movie, but the outfit is unmistakenable...

  7. "...More specifically, the outfit was used in the Roberta number 'I Won't Dance' 1935. "
    More specifically, I think that may be her own dress.

    Exactly, Lauren. Didn't she say that in her biography?

  9. "Didn't she say that in her biography?"
    I don't know. I haven't read it. Actually I read the first few pages but haven't gone past there yet.

  10. I haven't read the whole thing but I think that I read the part about Roberta and she said that the dress was of her own and she was really happy to have wore it at that movie.

  11. From "Ginger, My Story":

    "The gold lam(ay) dress I wore for the "I Won't Dance" number was a dress I had bought while in New York as part of my trousseau. That was the first time I ever wore a personal dress in a motion picture, and it was probably because Bernard Newman had designed it."

    ...so there you have it. I love it when a thread comes together...

  12. hehe, thanks a lot for quoting it, Jwalker. I already said it in other comment, if we want to know asomething about GR, you would know the answer ;)

  13. 'I love it when a thread comes together...'
    Perfect since we are talking about clothing.

  14. This picture is lovely in black and white. Stunning with the gold. Beautifully done.

    BTW, thanks for the welcome, JWalker.

  15. ...good to have Miss Fioraon on board!

    Maria - Thanks for the kind words...I am far from a Ginger expert, but definitely striving for that status!

    Lauren - glad I can keep you in stitches... or at least in bad puns and cliches...

  16. HAHA! It's because it sort of reminds me of... me! But we can keep that statement under wraps. :D

  17. ...well, there you go, Miss S!
    BTW, how is Petrov doing? I think I scared him off after the last round of smack I flung towards him... he is good at dishing, but can't take it, eh?
