This morning I woke up to the first snow of the year. That made me think of the holidays, which made me think about the movie White Christmas, which sent me to youtube to find this clip of Rosemary Clooney. Talk about elegance! The woman just oozed sophistication and sex appeal. If I ever find a vintage gown like this one, I’ll sell one of my kids to buy it. I’m almost not kidding.
Really, though, the best part here is her very restrained, cool-as-ice, direct delivery of the song and lyrics. She couldn’t be bothered with silly dancing and prancing. The voice and the eyes are all she needs.
Well, and that dress. Oh, the dress.
