50's Fancy Dress Costumes

The early fifties were ruled by the likes of Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Judy Garland, Bing Crosby, Dean Martin and Doris Day; showing that swing music was incredibly popular during this time. In high contrast, rock and roll came into the mainstream later on the in the decade thanks to Elvis - the King of Rock and Roll himself!
