Garbo - The Film

This Australian film from 1992 called "Garbo" has nothing to do with Greta and but it is still a bit related to Greta.

Fashion designer Giorgio Armani once explained his creative success with his ideal to dress women in men`s coats. The inspiration of the designer is complex- on one hand, this is the daily round, the city- life and bistros, the sport and the new negligee style of living, on the other- the emblematic names of movie stars, who are highly rspected from Armani- Greta Garbo and Marlene Dietrich.

The lovely exquisite furs and gowns were all inspired by Garbo and Rokk. Floor length dresses with flowery patterns reminded us of a time lost. His nice use of furs were more than mentionable especially a black and white mink which had zip off sleeves that were held together by white leather straps.

The designer states that he was not copying the 40s, but embodied it to understand the charm and grace of that period.

Fashion designer Salvatore Ferragamo inspired by Garbo

Fashion designers look to celebrities for inspiration. Cristina Ortiz (Ferragamo's creative director) is fascinated with Garbo.

The Milan fashion collections offered a little bit of everything: superbright colors, furry embellishments and even ironic military touches but the spotlight is certainly on designer Salvatore Ferragamo.

This year marks the company's 80th anniversary, one the family is celebrating with a big blowout bash next month in Shanghai. And the fall runway featured the debut of creative director Cristina Ortiz, who sent out a new sexpot vision for the storied house. Think glamour and Greta Garbo, whom the designer cited as her muse pre-show.

Pictures from the fashion show

Ortiz started out with a series of all-white getups that mined everything from Garbo's mannish wide-trouser suit look to the dramatic fur collars she sported in her early films. Embellishments, meanwhile, came primarily through curious metal clasps in lieu of seams à la Versace pins.

She used them and chain mail trim on everything from sexy jersey shifts to belted short coats and evening numbers, almost to the point of distraction. Ortiz's attempt at upping the glamour quotient — in keeping with Mr. Ferragamo's close Hollywood ties, she said — was a bit overzealous, especially for evening.

The designer simply skewed too discotheque flashy, and her drapy, flesh-baring gowns seemed better suited to New York City's Club Row than to Garbo in Grand Hotel.  More info  HERE  and  HERE!

Greta Garbo star

Garbo has a real star in the skie. The star known as Greta Garbo is a sun one hundred times larger than the sun of our solar system and can be found just next to the polar star – only it's infinitely further away.

Unable to give her the Nobel prize, Garbo's friend Sven Broman wanted to be a bit grand and gave Garbo something out of the ordinary – one of the stars in the sky.

You could (and still can, I think) buy one from a Canadian firm that is part of an organization that exists to gather funds for an observatory.

Garbo was sitting in the hotel room in Klosters Broman. Broman explained that many of the stars in the sky lack names, but he had arranged for one of them to be known as Greta Garbo from now on.

“That'll have to be the Star of Bethlehem then”, Garbo joked.

“I'm afraid that one's already taken, but I've got the certificate here,” Broman said.

Sven then produced the special star chart that he had had sent to her with all the related documents, etc.

Garbo folded together all the paraphernalia and then said quietly: “Thank you. I promise to continue shining over everything good as well as bad, in the future as well.”
