Anita Ekberg Style

Anita Ekberg Style

Anita Ekberg was a Swedish born Italian actress and model. Her infamous role in 1960’s La Dolce Vita put her on the map. Anita dancing, splashing and enticing her co-star to come join her in a long strapless black dress is an iconic cinematic moment. I loved channeling her fun and sexy scene!

Anita had some serious stunning style - from Va Va Voom, velvet gowns, turtlenecks, micro-pleated skirts, wavy blonde hair and alluring eyes - here are some of my favorite looks of hers to inspire and channel.

Strapless Black Evening Gown, La Dolce Vita, 1960

Anita stuns in this iconic dress. Note her makeup: long black lashes, perfectly arched eyebrows and an orange-red lip.

Gold Lamé Pants under a Black Satin Skirt, 1952

Anita was ahead of her time with this sexy yet funky look. Her gold pants and heels look perfect under a black satin dress. Her hair is perfectly coiffed in a 1950’s style. She accessorized with black gloves, drop earrings and a gorgeous bracelet.

Turtleneck and Full Floral Skirt

One of Ms.Ekberg’s demure looks still has a sensual charm to it. She paired her turtleneck with a detailed choker and a full, floral skirt and wide embellished belt.

White Lace Dress, 1955
