Show Girls

The duo had always worn their own vintage dresses and T-strap shoes to perform (Deschanel collects vintage frocks and bags), but for the show on Friday, they enlisted the help of Marley’s stylist, Jessica Paster, who found vintage fringed flapper dresses for the first act, contemporary Thirties-style gowns by Christian Dior and Carlson for the second, and stitched up some polkadot Forties-style halter dresses for the finale.

Although Deschanel just started filming the indie "Eulogy," she hopes Pretty Babies will play once a month — that is, if the group’s day jobs allow it. "Our piano player is an actor, our bass player is an algebra teacher, our guitar player is a writer, our accordion player teaches martial arts," she says. "And our sax player is a yoga instructor."
