In 1938 “The Jeweled Cat” was the perfect vehicle for Madra Lord: an intoxicating mix of mystery, seduction, and high fashion. In this film, bodies were dispatched with the same whimsy as hats; and nothing was taken as seriously as the clothes worn by the stars. In more or less the title role, Miss Lord was gowned and coiffed to the nines, and shone like the polished jewel of the Monolithic crown that she was. A long-sleeved, slender column of sheer metallic gold lace over satin, ‘The Jeweled Cat’ is covered with an elaborate floral pattern of multi-colored beads and sequins. Within the twists and turns of the story, a designer’s fortune is hidden, disguised as the decoration on this gown. The real fortune however, lay in Madra Lord’s star power, presented in gold-plated perfection in this ensemble. Long loupes of multi-colored and gilded beads encircle the simple neckline, a gold-toned cuff caresses a wrist, and a floral evening hat is spangled and veiled above a sleek, black pageboy. Gold metallic pumps are the beautiful hidden base for this golden idol to the fashion gods.
