Dancer Cyd Charisse - Fashion & Costumes

 

My favorite female dancer is Cyd Charisse. Her ability to do all kinds of dance from ballet to jazz was showcased in “The Band Wagon”. The movie is most famous for the song “That’s Entertainment”, but the entire movie and cast are great! 

 

Here’s a few photos of Cyd from the movie.

She was married to singer Tony Martin until her death

Stop being afraid of what could go wrong and start being positive what could go right.

She was gorgeous. Her legs went on forever. Her biggest problem was that her male partners were too short to dance with her, although they tried. Still, she left an indelible mark on American movie musicals.

@wilma, Thank you for your contributions here.  I did not fully recognize the many talents of this lady.  What you bring to us is something we can all relate to and have interest in.  I do appreciate that.  I will be scanning my Turner movie channel to see this talented beauty in action.

Cyd Charisse and Fred Astaire were just poetry in motion when they danced together.

What a talent. Loved her in "Brigadoon" with Gene Kelly and Van Johnson.

Wilma7500...thank you for posting this.  I love Cyd Charisse too.  So gorgeous and talented.  My all-time favorite dance routine is the Dancing In The Dark number, from The Bandwagon.  The music and the choreography never fails to enchant me.  How I would love to dance like that!

I like the white wrap shirt dress! Very pretty. I would definitely wear something like that now

I keep seeing promos for the Betty Broderick mini series and it looks like the clothing is going to be fun. It's circa 80s
