1950's Glamour

Friday, January 9, 2009

The 1950's was definitely a great fashion era and looking at classic fashion images from this decade, you can see a new daring approach to both fashion and photography. The dress above is absolutely timeless and would not look out of place if worn today. It's lovely too to see a bride with short hair!

Both of these images were taken by Norman Parkinson and the purple Vogue cover from 1957 exudes glamour, power and femininity.

I really love the classic shot of a bride arriving at the church and the open window provides a dramatic frame for the photographer to capture the moment. No wonder vintage cars are so popular for weddings.
