Posh Girls at Chateau Marmont

The famous Chateau Marmont sits right on Sunset Blvd as a legendary Hollywood hideaway, instilling mystery and nostalgia since the 20's. Built in 1927, The Chateau Marmont is full of secrets and scandal, once housing stars of the titillating tinsel town that was Old Hollywood. Modeled after a castle in France, this fantastical folly is appropriately hidden by lush foliage, with only it's signature rooftops peeking out among the Hollywood Hills. 

The walls of Marmont have seen our favorite glamour gals including Marilyn Monroe, Jean Harlow, Greta Garbo and Marlene Dietrich. Harry Cohn, founder of Columbia Pictures said in 1939, "If you must get in trouble, do it at the Chateau Marmont." Filmmaker Billy Wilder also once said, "I would rather sleep in a bathroom there than at any other hotel." It's clear that The Chateau Marmont was a favorite among Hollywood elite, and we love to remember it for what it once was. 

It was a gorgeous Spring day in West Hollywood with the California sun shining, but was cool enough to wear our Wheels and Dollbaby Posh Girl Leopard angora sweaters. What better outfit for Chateau Marmont than a decadent dollbaby ensemble capturing Old Hollywood glamour! As leopard lovers, W&DB is our go-to, offering the purrrfect prints & fluffy feline fabrics. Finished with an Art Deco rhinestone clasp or noir velvet bow, these pieces certainly live up to their collection name of "High Society Kittens." 

Paired with these classic cardigans, we combined a 1950's wiggle dress with 1940's-1950's fur handbags to complete our leopard look. Lastly, a high society kitten never forgets a matching vintage beret!
