The Man in Black from the Dark Tower

An immortal, evil sorcerer who delights in causing death and devastation, The Man in Black (Matthew McConaughey) is the powerful villain in the 2017 movie adaptation of Stephen King’s novel The Dark Tower. In this first installment of the series, The Man in Black- also known as Walter Padick – goes up against protagonist and Gunslinger Roland Deschain (Idris Elba) in a battle to protect the Tower. If the Tower falls, as the Man in Black wants, all the many universes linked to it will be destroyed. As expected, the Man in Black dresses entirely in black.

Thelma the Cigarette Girl

In The Aviator, Howard Hughes has a brief flirtation with Thelma (Josie Maran), the cigarette girl in a supper club. Cigarette girls worked in speakeasies and clubs during the 1920’s, offering cigarettes, cigars, or other novelties from a tray they carried around their neck. Similar to a cocktail waitress, this tipped position was given to young, attractive women who were typically dressed similar to saloon girls, flappers, or burlesque dancers. Due to their portrayal in film, cigarette girls became a staple and grew in popularity until the end of Prohibition, when they moved to public nightclubs. Thelma’s outfit is similar to a belly dancer and can be achieved with similar clothing, though the belly dance skirt will need to be cut to the appropriate length. Cigarette trays are an expensive vintage item now, but they can be easily made with a shallow box and some ribbon.
