Even angels enjoy a perfectly mixed drink, and sophisticated seraph, Dudley, orders himself a Stinger. A classic 40s cocktail, a Stinger blends brandy and crème de menthe for a warming, wintery tipple.
In the years following WWII, the sense of austerity that had governed fashion trends was beginning to dissipate and give way to the renaissance of haute couture. Dior's "New Look" was now ushering in the round shoulders and sweeping skirts that would later evolve to define the silhouette of the 1950s. Women's looks, reacting to the "uniform" styles of the war years, began to soften. Men's suits were broad-shouldered, often featuring broad lapels and fuller trousers — a response to the end of wartime fabric restrictions.
