Dorothy Dandridge, the embodiment of all things glamorous
Once upon a time, I used to cruise the internet in search of any and all things vintage (I still do this, actually). I drew a great deal of inspiration from the glamorous looks worn by Hollywood stars from the first half of the 20th century. They looked so effortlessly luxurious, perfectly coiffed and naturally elegant. I loved everything about how these doyennes of the silver screen presented themselves for the public. They cared about what they wore and who saw them.

When you look at photos of classic actresses, you can’t help but think, “Wow they look great”.

But even though we know they had LOTS of help, many of us still enjoy the possibility of recreating some of these looks RIGHT NOW.
