1945. I first came across Dusty Anderson as the cover girl for Farm Journal in Cover Girl, a must-see movie for anyone who’s into fashion, the movies, the 1940s or Rita Hayworth. And Dusty’s modelling credentials are very much on display here, tantalisingly set off by full-length, satin evening gloves, a tight bustier and a gauzy gown.
A caption on the back of the photo reads:
HALLOWE’EN GLAMOUR – Dusty Anderson, beautiful Columbia Pictures’ actress, will need more than that witch’s hat to frighten anyone on Hallowe’en, for she’s just too good-looking to be mistaken for a witch. That broom might help if it weren’t such a creation of black velvet with ostrich plumes. Dusty recently finished a role in the Technicolor musical, “Tonight and Every Night,” which stars Rita Hayworth, Janet Blair and Lee Bowman.
