dedicated to my fantastic new icon, which is from a still from alfred hitchcock's 1940 film adaptation of the daphne du maurier novel of the same name, rebecca.
it's very easily one of my favorite hitchcock films and i think, one of the most stylish films ever. even though the second mrs. de winter is meant to be this plain, homely girl, i can't help but adore everything she wears.
it probably doesn't help that joan fontaine is meant to be the terrified new bride. (however, her performance is BRILLIANT, AMAZING, FANTASTIC. scared, skittish, yet secretly strong--she was incredible.)
