The second world war put a stop on couture, but not on glamourous Hollywood which khaki and grey could not touch. Hollywood started to use colours in the later years and made movies like films noir, thrillers and dramatic movies. Cannes festival was inaugerated in 1947.

Corsets came to style again, but not as restricting as the Victorian age.
