At the MFA now ~ The democratization of glamour

Every age sets its own standard for beauty and style, but rarely has there been an era when glamour and self-display dominated the spirit of the time as they did in the 1930s and 1940s. In spite, or perhaps because, of the Depression and its aftermath, jewelry and fashion designers were busy creat­ing new styles meant for a new elite--the actresses minted by the studio system in Hol­lywood.
