Gene Kelly: An American In Paris

In 1951 Gene Kelly starred in "An American In Paris" alongside Leslie Caron. A film not only memorable for its interesting plot and dance sequences, but also for Gene Kelly's ensembles. One of these was made up of navy blue pants and polo, what makes it "original" is the polo's wide white collar.

Kelly's dance moves have inspired many dancers and performers for decades. Below a photo that captures him in mid air doing one of his trademark moves. He is wearing a fitted polo and pleated trousers, with white socks and black loafers, for some a fashion mistake, for others reminiscent of Michael Jackson.
