Ziegfeld Follies

The History:
In MGM’s 1946 box-office success, Ziegfeld Follies, multi-talented Judy Garland wore a beautiful blue dress while performing one of her most poised, elegant and complex musical dance routines.

The Inspiration:
The ever-changing tone of blue as the silk fabric moves in the light with such fluidity and grace is reflected in Racanelli’s rendition of Ms. Garland’s figure-hugging gown.

A Star is Born

The History:
The original movie of A Star is Born was released in 1937. There have been three remakes of this movie. Judy Garland and James Mason starred in the second 1954 adaptation, in which Garland was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance in this film.

 

The Inspiration:
For this gown, Racanelli carefully selected dark blue and violet beaded fabrics capturing the essence of deep-sea corrals and bearing the iridescence of Judy Garland’s dress that shimmered as her character climbed the stairs to accept an Oscar in the movie A Star Is Born.

A Star is Born

The History:
The original movie of A Star is Born was released in 1937. There have been three remakes of this movie. Judy Garland and James Mason starred in the second 1954 adaptation, in which Garland was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance in this film. In one of her infamous scenes, she wore a lilac dress while singing “Melancholy Baby”.

 

The Inspiration:
The train of Racanelli’s lilac dress flares out like the tail of the lesser bird of paradise, an endangered bird found in New Guinea. Captivated by the magnificence of these exotic birds, Racanelli added long, elaborated extensions spanning both sides of the couture gown.

Till the Clouds Roll By

The History:
MGM produced the 1946 musical-drama Till the Clouds Roll By based on the story of Jerome Kern. In this movie, Judy Garland wore a primrose yellow gown while performing a dance number to the music “Who”. She was four months pregnant with Liza when this movie was filmed.

The Inspiration:
After watching Ms. Garland’s exquisite dance performance in Till the Clouds Roll By, Racanelli imagined his interpretation of her dress as embodying the sun’s rays, exuding light with a touch of sparkle emitting from the beaded tulle fabric.

Meet Me in St. Louis

The History:
Judy Garland wore an iconic red velvet dress when she sang “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” to Margaret O’Brian in MGM’s 1944 classic movie Meet Me in St. Louis.

The Inspiration:
Designer Roberto Racanelli wished to create the illusion of a blooming rose with the red taffeta fabric as the silky, soft movements of rose petals combined with feelings of romance triggered his emotions.

Easter Parade

The History:
A critical and commercial success, Easter Parade was the highest-grossing musical film of 1948, and the second highest-grossing MGM musical of the 1940s. Fred Astaire came out of retirement to play opposite Ms. Garland in this film. While wearing a beautiful two-piece green dress, Garland sang “Better Luck Next Time”.

The Inspiration:
Art déco mixed with the elegant touch of Old Hollywood served as Racanelli’s inspiration for designing this exquisite, two-piece, emerald green velvet gown.
