Shanghai in the 1930s

I'm crazy over the looks of 1930s Shanghainese women in cheongsams. It must be the influence of Stanley Kwan's movies like White Rose and Red Rose, Rouge and Ruan Lingyu. Of course, nobody dresses like this in modern day Shanghai with the exception on service employees in hotels or restaurants. I can imagine myself slip into a wonderfully tailored cheongsam.
