Niagara polly and rose

I watched the 1953 film Niagara today, and aside from the spectacular scenery i was enjoying what everyone wore (mainly just because thats what people wore in the 50’s). There are two very different female leads; Rose the blonde bombshell feme fatale wearing killer heels and tight skirts to accentuate her wiggle and Polly a fresh faced young woman in soft blues and fabrics. I wanted to see if i could recreate some of the looks and here are my ideas
