It seems like there is a huge returning to the glamour and beauty of the 1950s. I’ve been noticing a lot of movies that are set in that time period. Take “The Help” for example. The book was amazing for the stories it told, but the movie captured my imagination. I loved seeing the hair, the dresses and the homes of the ladies from the south.
That movie was full of beautiful floral A-line dresses and bright-colored pencil skirts.
And now the television show Pan Am is hugely popular. I’ve been taking notes on their make up. I love the eyeliner and bright lip colors. These leading ladies are more likely to wear pencil skirts and jackets (even when off duty) than the dresses that the girls in The Help wore.
And let’s not forget the amazing, beautiful, Adele at the Grammys! Her red lips, bold eyes and lovely lace dress all screamed 50s Glam! She is a classy, polished, woman. I admire her voice as well as her person.
I took all this inspiration and created my own glamorous look. What do you think? I know I’d totally wear this out to town. What a fun night this would be.
