Madra Lord's’s performance in “Rich Girl” as Eden Vickers was one of the highlights of her late 1930’s film career. Madra was given – and relished – the opportunity to play a character whose transformation propels the story from start to finish. This costume was entitled ‘Careless Kisses’ for obvious reasons within the plot. The pristine cream satin gown was the perfect counterpoint to Eden’s reckless flirtations and desperate unhappiness within her sheltered life. Over the meticulously pleated satin pumps, an attached satin ‘apron’ covers the full underskirt of cream tulle and drapes surprisingly lower in the front than back. The halter neckline of tulle spangled with sequins over satin covers the bust and adds to the uncovered, virginal tones of the dress. A small sequined evening hat is worn off-center as both a fashion statement and character clue and lavish ‘diamond’ and ‘gold jewelry’ sparkles at the throat and earlobes. Long black gloves steal the show and offer a visual expression of the contrasts within the heroine’s character as Madra emotes her way into film legend. A fur will complete this sensational look (not shown).
