Style Icon: Judy Garland in Easter Parade

Easter Parade teaches us an important style lesson -- you will not be fabulous trying to imitate someone, you will only be fabulous being authentically yourself.

You see, Judy Garland's character starts out trying to replace/be just like Ann Miller's character, and it's not working out. That's not who Judy Garland is! She's earthier than that. She's spunkier!

Once her and Fred Astaire figure that out, they become dancing sensations. (And maybe, possibly get romantical.)

Happy Easter!

I watched that film last night, as I do every year, and Judy is adorable in it, but Fred's dance routines (the drum dance in the toy store and the white suit/red socks one) are what keeps it on my list of favourite films.

An apt offering for Easter. I've not seen this film :)

I don't know why I've never seen this movie, since I love both of the principal actors!
