Have just finished watching the British drama The Story of Esther Costello (1957) and was intrigued from the very beginning. Not only by the story, Joan Crawford's acting and Jean Louis' beautiful costumes but also by the size of Heather Sears' waist. It is unbelievably small. So much so I have tried to research the exact size but to no avail. Quite a dark movie for its time but one, I think, worth watching.
Inspired by the beautiful gowns worn by Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Garner to the 2013 Governors Awards in Hollywood recently (shown in my last post) I decided to show all the beautiful vintage 1950s LBDs I have for sale on vintageclothing.com.au
They never cease to delight me and the styles are timeless ... and of course at a fraction of the cost you would pay today for the same dress.
I hope you enjoy them.
With the Spring Racing Carnival looming my thoughts have turned to hats and of course I think of the most beautiful face of them all, Audrey Hepburn. This woman was born to be wear hats. She could wear a paper bag on her head and look beautiful. Hope these photos inspire you if you are planning on going to the races soon.
Vintage 50s at its best. Original black and silver halter-neck, backless wiggle dress. The quality striped fabric is textured and has a slight sheen. Just add a fabulous black hat or fascinator. I am a bit partial to the bigger brimmed hats for that knockout look. You will be ready for Derby Day.
Miranda Kerr looked amazing in this vintage inspired off white dress by Victoria Beckham when she arrived at Vogue in NYC. Personally, the only thing I am not mad about is the full length zip at the back. Just don't think it needed it when the dress is worn with a belt.
Accessories are: Prada handbag, Mui Mui sunglasses and Lanvin shoes Photos by Zimbio
