Style alert: Joan Crawford and Greta Garbo in Grand Hotel (1932)

I watched this film because Greta Garbo is in it but I’m afraid Joan stole the show in this film. I thought that Greta Garbo overacted a bit and sometimes her accent was so heavy I didn’t know what she was saying.

Although Joan Crawford spends the whole film in the same dress, it’s chic enough to not matter. The hat is just gorgeous too.

Beautiful hair as well.

Greta is my current classic Hollywood girl crush. She’s so beautiful it hurts! In Grand Hotel she plays a Russian ballerina and spends most of the time moping around in her room. Hence there’s not a lot of fashion to behold. Hair and make-up is great though.

There’s the dressing gown.

The tutu…

And the coat…

The film itself I’d give a 7 out of 10. I’ve seen better.
