Question ID# - 27
I am in the play West Side Story and I am portraying Anita. I was wondering about a good 50's Puerto Rican style for my character.
Some '50's cocktail dresses, some petticoats, and some tight sweaters...that's all you really need to look sexy like Anita. Any of these pieces would do double duty as fun additions to your contemporary wardrobe.
