Rather than spend hours sifting through google images – are there any movies you have seen that capture the old hollywood look you’re going for? That may be an easier place to start~ I’d suggest maybe the movie Chicago, or even vintage movies like Casablanca~

You might also look for others who wore the same dress and see what hair choices they made – either on wedding bee or google images or tineye.com (reverse image search).

Try looking for stills from these movies:

Christmas in Connecticut

Double Indemnity

Mildred Pierce (I don’t know how 40’s you want it. There’s some pretty severe hair in this one)

The Philadephia Story (I’d just watch the whole movie. Love it!)

Adam’s Rib

His Girl Friday

All About Eve

Now Voyager

The Outlaw

Anyway, that may get you started. I hope it helps!

Oooh! I may’ve misread the question! Are you going for 20’s-40’s era as well? Or any vintage Hollywood? Because I adore old Hollywood beauty, but probably have more 50’s – 60’s references off the top of my head. If you are open to that as well, I can name off some more movies to look at pictures from.

You mentioned black/white & feathers. What does your dress look like? And what is your hair texture – are there any issues? Very fine or very curly?
