1940s-fashion

[Agent Carter] continued the color story from Captain America: The First Avenger. You’ll see Peggy in a lot of red, white and blue, as a silent tribute to her lost love, Captain America. Her trademark look is the red custom ladies Stetson Stratoliner hat, a burst of color in a sea of grey fedoras. Working in man’s world she needed to stand out, and she did that using color in her wardrobe.

Josephine Baker wed fourth (and final) husband, orchestra leader Jo Bouillon in 1947. They were together until their divorce in 1961. It was during this time Ms. Baker adopted her twelve children of different ethnicities and religions which she called her “Rainbow Tribe.” It was her desire to show the world that children from different backgrounds could live together as brothers.
