Christina Aguilera Dances The Night Away

Apparently that's what one wears to a night club nowadays. Maybe it's just me, but Christina Aguilera makes me long for the days the party scene looked like this:

Or this:

Or even this:

Hollywood glory days from


  1. I should have been born in the days of cocktail hour and when cutting edge design was conceived at the Bauhaus.


  2. You are a girl after my own heart! I just love the old Hollywood pics you post! My Mom grew up in the 40's and was in love with Clark Gable.
    I wish the 40's style would come back again! Shoulder pads in a suite make your waist look tiny.
    You have to see the movie Dinner at Eight!
    I have siren red polish on right now and have a sudden craving for a frosty glass of Champagne. Jeeves! Get me my coat! We're going out!

  3. I'm told all the time by my family that I was born in the wrong time. I'm pretty sure I should have been around in the 40's & 50's. I can't relate to the current styles AT ALL. I'd blame it on being in my 40's but I've always been like this. Oh well, maybe in my past life, I WAS that chic lady dressing to the nines, dabbing on the Shalimar from my crystal flacon & dashing out to cocktails and a show. Strange to pine for something you never knew.

  4. I agree,but I do think there's a difference between clubbing and cocktail parties. You can still dress like that to a normal "party", but as clubbing translates to trance to me I wouldn't feel comfortable dancing in those outfits.

    <3 40s style though.

  5. Yes, I don't agree what passes for appropriate party wear now but what Christina is wearing is more clothing than what I have noticed being photographed. Maybe I'm desensitized based on Lady Gaga's refusal of wearing pants in public.

    Oh Barcelona Chair - i love your commentary. My husband and I want to name our dog, Gropius. If we ever get one of course.
