Old Hollywood

It’s no secret that the fashions of the past captivate me much more than the fashions of today! I must admit that I don’t understand many current trends– crop tops and jeans that look like they’ve been attacked by a wolverine just do not appeal to me. I believe that fashion should make an impression in ways other than by simply showing a lot of skin; and past eras serve this aesthetic much better than today’s does.

Looking at today’s runways and red carpets, every other outfit seems to be either sheer or full of cut-outs… or both. Some of these dresses can be very tastefully worn, but most are things I would never be comfortable wearing. This evening look is an Old Hollywood-inspired alternative; which I think is far more stunning than any 21st century look! A gorgeous pale pink satin dress paired with a grey fur coat defines this outfit as the ultimate in luxury. Jewellery featuring emeralds and diamonds adds visual sparkle and interest, and contributes to the 1930s feel. More modern-looking sandals from Vivienne Westwood update the look, while an unusual Art Deco clutch is a memorable accessory. Finally, red nail polish and lipstick add a timeless makeup look which ensures that an ensemble like this will be remembered for all the right reasons!
