I want to raid her closet! this is too fabulous! I love it!

So beautiful! I wish I could wear those clothes without people thinking I was some weirdo although, that could have happened then too....hmmm.
May 12, 2009 3:53 AM
Let them think it! Anyone who is freaked out by someone else's choice of clothing isn't worth paying attention to.

It is interesting to go back in time. We can catch the essence of
the people and time though photographs.

Didn't she die by choking because one of her scarves got stuck while driving?
May 12, 2009 11:18 PM
No, think that was Isadora Duncan

I hate that women aren't classy like this anymore.
May 16, 2009 6:47 PM
She's been stealing from me again, sigh.
May 16, 2009 7:56 PM
Very intresting pictures.
May 16, 2009 9:24 PM
Wow. . . I love her sense of style. I wonder what she wore to just lounge around the house? You don't see many people these days with this kind of a wardrobe. We could use a few more of Ruth today.

what lmao? These are just tweaked styles taken from other traditional cultures around the world, with a flapper twist. I can see how it's "classy" or "glamourous" now but i mean, didn't take a lot of thinking or creativity, just a lot of money and a little bit of worldly travel.
That being said I would like to see her in lounge-everyday wear before I say it's the best.

I love the retro styles too. The work that went into making these clothes is incomparable to today's rags.
May 17, 2009 9:14 PM
I love this era, for clothing.
May 19, 2009 2:19 AM
Worldly travel is just plain boring; time travel is much more thrilling.
May 19, 2009 5:44 AM
absolutely fabulous, lovely costumes. I wish I could try some of them!
May 19, 2009 8:57 AM
I love it!!

Very inspiring! Hmm I definitely should take notes and acquire some of this into my wardrobe with an added twist, would love to see the reaction of today's time and age.
May 20, 2009 4:39 PM
Every decade has pioneers when it comes to fashions. Personally I can't say that this was the best wardrobe of all time. What I can say that some of the costumes Ruth wore at the time definably made some heads turn.
May 20, 2009 5:28 PM
I nice look back in history. thanks for posting these.
May 20, 2009 6:17 PM
congratulation's u'r pick.. is... great ^o)
May 21, 2009 5:46 PM
What a beauty and the clothing too. I love the jewels in her hair.
I find it amazing she still performed in to her 80's.
May 21, 2009 9:04 PM
I absolutely love, love, love this style and she is beautiful. You can't help but wonder about the colors, materials, workmanship. I only wish that the designers were mentioned. The closest we have today would be Valentino. If you want to see more theatrical designs, you might check out the fabulous Leon Bakst!
May 26, 2009 7:59 PM
Great style. People should have fun with the clothes they wear. Otherwise you become a prisoner of conformity. In other words, love what you wear!
June 13, 2009 1:25 AM
shopped...you can tell
July 12, 2009 3:53 AM
Looks like she was heavily influenced by India
July 12, 2009 6:27 AM
