Consisting of a cardigan and a matching tank or short-sleeved top, the twin set first appeared in the '20s care of the aforementioned Madame Gabrielle Chanel and her rival, fellow couturier Elsa Schiaparelli. Still, it only became silver screen-certified in 1937, when Lana Turner headlined the flick They Won't Forget in a scandalous, figure-skimming knit. Gasp. Then followed the rest of the notoriously curve-flauntin' so-called Sweater Girls (count bombshell actresses Jayne Mansfield and Jane Russell among their number).
