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
One of my favorite Anita looks! This gorgeous curve-hugging white lace dress is a stunner and I love her addition of the pearl chandelier earrings!
Cool and Glam in a Little Black Dress, 1955
Retro Glam! Anita made this little black dress look cool and glamorous with her gorgeous waves, over sized earrings and stack of bracelets.
