Sex on the screen: 10 most outspoken outfits in the movie
Ginger Rogers, “Flight to Rio”
Year of creation: 1933.
In 1930, the Hayes Code was adopted in the United States, which prohibited displaying nudes on the screen during film production in Hollywood, as well as using outfits with too outspoken cleavage. In order not to abandon the exploitation of sexual images, the filmmakers went to the trick. In this code, there was not a word that women should not be shown on the screen, wearing tight, sometimes transparent dresses. Costume designers began to create special outfits made of tulle and decorated with sequins in the most interesting places. That is how the “naked” appeared, or, as they were then called, “illusory” dresses.One of the first, in 1933, Ginger Rogers tried on such an outfit in the cinema for the film “Flight to Rio”.
