If you want to impress mom, keep it classy and true.
Before you hit Warner Brothers Studio's "Classics Made Here," mega-explosion of cultural-historical costume exhibit, you can treat her to Firefly's Mother's Day Brunch, http://luxurist.blogspot.com/2018/05/let-firefly-do-all-cooking-on-mothers.html.
Then, you can really impress her with spending the rest of Mother's Day gazing, gawking, and awing over the actually role-defining, star-making clothes worn by real stars in transformative, mold-busting movies such as "My Fair Lady," "Giant," and the classic leading ladies: Elizabeth Taylor, Joan Crawford, Bette Davis, Lauren Bacall, and Audrey Hepburn.
Despite being designed and constructed during the height of the era and decade their movies were made in; or in "My Fair Lady," historical period costumes reaching back in history, the fabrics, the threading constructing the stitch, the buttons, the bias-body curving draping and anatomical tailoring celebrating real women's figures are so exquisite, that your mom and you may want to wear these historical costumes and clothes right now.
Fans of Ryan Murphy's FX "Feud: Bette & Joan," would faint as they see Bette Davis' and Joan Crawford's powerfully feminine dresses, live in person, appropriate for today's #MeToo Movement. This exhibit proves you don't have to be slutty to be a female.
You don't have to a female to define an era or be a classic through clothes.
Men were men in three-piece suits for James Cagney in his gangster suits, proving sharp tailoring makes a man.
A sporty red jackets made James Dean, "A Rebel Without a Cause."
Ground-breaking movie costumes so exquisite that makes mom wanna wear these dresses right now.
Treat her right.
