A runaway bride plot is an excuse for lots of fashions and music
9 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Joan Bennett runs out on her wedding day and takes up with fashion designer Warner Baxter in "Vogues of 1938" which is a combination of musical numbers and fashion shows with a little plot in between. And it's in Technicolor! Bennett has reddish-blonde hair here and resembles Lucille Ball a little but her voice is similar to her sister Constance. I'm so used to her as a beautiful brunette that the change took some getting used to - it has to be shortly after that she did a screen test for "Gone With the Wind," and by then, she had dark hair. In this story, after she abandons her wedding, she falls for the married Baxter (who designed and made her gown) and becomes a model in his fashion house. Baxter's wife is an ambitious performer who persuades him to back a show she's in - and it nearly breaks him.

There are some great scenes - I have to admit, I thought the roller skaters were spectacular. There was a wonderful scene at the Cotton Club, another at El Morocco, and the entire finale is a fashion show done as a musical. The gowns and suits are gorgeous.

Precious little plot here but plenty of shots of the New York of the '30s, some good music, dancing, gowns - and oh, those roller skaters!
