Clark Gable, Grace Kelly, and Ava Gardner in Africa, what a combination! The story in Mogambo (1953) may be a bit staid (I am not a huge fan of the love triangle) but the fashion certainly is not! My goodness the style in this film is to die for, both ladies lave the most gorgeous clothes for their separate safaris.
I highly recommend the film for the fashion on display alone, but Ava Gardner is also a joy to watch and I want to be friends with her character. Lets be honest and say Gable is too old for either Gardner or Kelly, but I can see why they fall for him all the same. I love how both ladies have dozens of suitcases as they also have dozens of outfits each as well! I love Gardner's full skirts and off the shoulder sweaters with sexy strappy heels just as much as the way she wears her safari shirts with the sleeves rolled up and tucked into high waisted trousers. Kelly's more prim look is just as gorgeous, with her super cute camel safaru suit and perfect collared blouses. I adored the clothing in this film, and it has already inspired me to wear cute little scarves at the neck more often!
