Topic: Fashion We Love

Just post pictures of fashion things you love other than perfume. Men's fashion as well as women's fashion is welcome. Clothing, hats, shoes, jewelry, cars, furniture, decoratives, musical instruments, any accessories. Anything goes. Any time period is welcome. You can describe your choice or not. Comment on others or not! Have fun! Cheers!

I will start with one of my favorite and most famous fashion shots:

Re: Fashion We Love

Sunny Harnett was born; Annemarie Margot Harnett in Brooklyn, New York 1924. She can be found in fashion magazines throughout the 1950s. Well liked, Sunny became an assistant to Eileen Ford of Ford Models when she quit modelling. I loved Sunny's work. She represents the original towering cool-blonde glamazon supermodel of the 1950s.

Re: Fashion We Love

This famous, iconic image of the American high fashion model Jean Patchett was originally a black-and-white photograph (colored by the art department of Vogue, it dominated the cover of the January 1950 issue of the publication). By means of broad and violent lighting, photographer Erwin Blumenfeld erased all the features of Patchett’s face, leaving only the most minimal details: an eye, the mouth, and a beauty spot. This composition has subsequently been widely imitated.
