1940s Film Noir Femme Fatale Inspired Look

This is my homage to every mysterious dame in a detective film noir, or described on the pages of the novels of Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler. The eggplant purple with black polka dot motif is very unique, as is the smoking on the bodice of the dress, since both elements give it an almost child-ish appearance. Nevertheless, the dark color and very mature accessories I have chosen, such as as a black lace garter belt, a retro figure sculpting bra, a circular hat with a veil attached, a black fur stole, and L'Air du Temps perfume bring my character into the very adult realm of neon lights, gin joints, half empty pool halls, and deception.
