Viva Las Vegas

When you the of the 1960s, a few icons come to mind:  The Beatles, Twiggy, Edie Segwick, Elvis.  But what about Ann-Margret?  Although Ann’s fashion influence hasn’t extended as widely as some other 60s icons’, Ann-Margret was one of the most fashionable and sexy starlets of the time.  Nothing proves this more than the movie Viva Las Vegas!

Ann-Margret was an actress who starred in tons of musical movies (go watch Bye Bye Birdie, right now.) and her most famous role was opposite Elvis Presley in Viva Las Vegas.  She played Rusty to his Lucky, engaging in a push-and-pull romance both on- and off-screen.  The chemistry between Ann-Margret and Elvis was palpable, helping VLV to become a box-office hit and prompting jealousy from Elvis’ girlfriend (and future wife) Priscilla.  Of course Elvis couldn’t keep his hands off of Ann-Margret in her iconic yellow dress!  She was on fire in that dress, the golden hue complimenting her flaming red hair perfectly.  The way it hugged her curves—ugh.  So good.

When we received this yellow wiggle dress in stylehaus last week, Ann-Margret was the first thing we thought of!  Finally, her sexy style is achievable with a few styling tricks.   Since this dress is so look-at-me bright, we recommend that you skimp on accessories.  A simple pair of pumps and maybe a pair of stud earrings are all you need!
