Janet Leigh Knew How To Get Into Character, And Costume (PHOTO)

"Psycho'" star Janet Leigh was phenomenal at getting into character for her roles. This 1950s photo of Jamie Lee Curtis' mom posing for the film "Jet Pilot" proves she was also good at getting into costume.

Her glitzy outfit, if converted a bit, could be a completely wearable look today. We love the combination of a sequin top, colored trousers and dressy sandals. And the vivid red lipstick makes the outfit especially pop. Check out how we shopped out the ensemble below, and tell us, would you give this style a try?

Shop the look below and check out more fashion nostalgia photos.
