It's been a little while since I have published a picture post on the blog, so I thought I might do something different and share some pictures of 1950's models. Movie stars and iconic designs are usually what comes to mind when I think of vintage fashions. I don't think people take as much notice of the famous models from the era compared to modern day models which are always in the tabloids (or on ninemsn).
I know that models generally don't style their own outfits, but I adore the way that these women were dressed. I love the poise and the glamour that exudes from these photographs. And, I adore the way that they are made up; defined highly arched brows, thick pointed winged eyeliner, bold painted lips, coiffed hair and jewels galore. I have decided to use the models names as the link to the image source. I have included two pictures of each model in black/white.
With their slender bodies and tiny little waists (they must have waist trained, surely? to get so small), their graceful poses and painted faces; these models are like ballerinas in couture. These 1950s fashion photos are so stylish that they make me want to put in just a little bit more effort and be clever with my style choices. While the photos are black/white and I cannot tell exactly what the colours are, I do feel more inspired to choose those basic tones (well you get in trouble for calling them colours) after admiring these 1950s pictures.
I hope you enjoyed the picture post.
