Cyd Charisse passed away. She was one of my favorite dancers from the Golden Age of the movie musicals. She had style, grace, talent, and a bit of a sassy edge.
One of my favorite movie moments is her number with Gene Kelly in Singin' in the Rain. In the first part of the piece, she plays a gangster's moll, dressed in a sexy green dress. In the second part, sort of a dream within a dream, she wears a white Grecian-esque dress with a 25 ft. long scarf hanging off her shoulder. I thought this dress from I <3 Cupcakes was a great homage to both dresses in that number.
Cyd, you will be missed, but your memory will live on through your amazing movie legacy.
