"I was born at the wrong time! I was meant to be Ginger Rogers!" Brooke Burns told StyleList at the opening night of LA Fashion Week Spring 2011.

Twirling in her floor-length feathered Sue Wong beaded gown, she added: "But, if I could have been any of them I would go with Rita Hayworth!"

Red carpet designer Wong asked guests to come to her event dressed as their favorite silver screen siren. "Madonna has channeled Marlene Dietrich, Christina Aguilera captures old Hollywood beautifully. Nicole Kidman has that perfect period face," Wong said.

"I love the women of that era because they were undaunted and undeterred, they were the first modern woman. I love their indomitable spirit. It is time for Hollywood to bring back the glamour!"

Wong's studio was set up as a throwback to the Golden Age, feathers and tight bodices accompanied with finger curls were all over her models.

And instead of a typical "runway," Wong had the women in still poses on Lucite boxes throughout her showroom.

Seventeen-year old "Army Wives" actress Katelyn Pippy was wearing a purple and black beaded Wong dress with a plunging neckline. She told us: "I would say my favorite screen siren is Audrey Hepburn, she was classy and quirky!"

"Glee" actress Charlotte Ross really played up the part of "movie star." Her Wong gown was form-fitted and floor-length, and her blonde hair cascaded in Veronica Lake fashion.

Ross told StyleList, "My all-time favorite screen siren would be Bette Davis. She really did the groundwork to be the real first bitch in Hollywood. I have always been drawn to roles that some people might say are bitchy."

Bucking the floor-length trend, former "Girls Next Door" star Bridget Marquardt arrived in a baby pink, beaded knee-length Wong cocktail dress.

When asked which silver screen goddess she most identified with, she surprisingly did not go with Marilyn Monroe.

"Mae West is my pick!" she said. "She was sassy and edgy for her time, and I like that!"

Though Marquardt chose West easily, she had a more difficult time with her gown. "It was so hard to pick which one to wear! It took me forever," she said. "I love these twenties-inspired dresses."

Sue Wong designs are nationally carried in Bloomingdale's, Neiman Marcus, and Saks Fifth Avenue.
