To linger a little bit longer in Carmel Snow’s era, a retrospective photo editorial published by LIFE magazine, featuring Christian Dior and the birth of the New Look. Revolutionary fashion that caused street riots, but for decades influenced world fashion.
I love Vogue Japan and treasure every issue that I have, as the magazine is filled with amazing photo editorials as well as exciting fashion ideas. It is not easy to get hold of, but it is really worth the trouble as well as reading it “back to front”, which seems very strange at first! For all Vogue fans, a run through of samples from some retrospective fashion editorials.

To be a stewardess, have a glamorous life filled with exciting travels, mysterious first class passengers and handsome pilots in spotless uniforms… Sounds familiar? Nowadays maybe not so much as back in time, when plane travels were considered to be a paramount of sophistication and an element of a jet set life style. With a note of nostalgia, photo editorial from stewardess school visited by LIFE magazine back in 1958.
As a small girl I had a fantasy of becoming a ballerina, wearing my long hair in a bun and dressing up in powder pink tutu. I never went beyond fantasies though, so my fascination with ballerinas never left a dream world. Till today, days after every ballet performance that I see, I can’t stop to marvel at the swan like charm so typical for ballet dancers. All about ballerinas seem to be so elegant, marked with the special kind of a fragile beauty. Is there a chance to bring this etheric charm into the daily life, so at least from time to time one can feel like a prima ballerina without looking silly or out of place? I do believe so, as fashion has a reply to similar questions!
For those who would like to create a ballerina inspired outfit, some easy recommendations to follow:
