Blogger Kat said ... (4:35 PM) : 

i love it.. it's very old-school glamour.


Blogger Unknown said ... (4:35 PM) : 

Gorgeous fur! I think I prefer the hair of the second, but the outfit of the first. Beautiful red lips too.


Anonymous Vaya said ... (4:36 PM) : 

mon Dieu, vraiment le Roi est de retour! The king is back, the 40's also

GREAT fur collars. love it ladies.


Blogger toridawn said ... (4:41 PM) : 

Fabulous. I love when it becomes popular for women to coif their hair once again. Seems to come and go unfortunately.


Blogger Unknown said ... (4:41 PM) : 

Very well spotted! This is indeed a style of hair (ok similar styles of hairdo) that are very very London at the moment!

Mad Men influence?


Blogger Jessica Szeto said ... (4:41 PM) : 

just wonderful.


Blogger Amy B. said ... (4:43 PM) : 

Mmm... very old Hollywood.

These are amazing! Love the waves/lipstick/fur combo, so chic.


Blogger Kathleen said ... (4:44 PM) : 

Love the hair, yes! Love the lips and collars, too.

Very posh! I love that retro styling. Only wish I had the patience to work my hair into similar styles.


Blogger Emily said ... (4:46 PM) : 

Think I might have to try this! Gorgeous!


Blogger Sophia said ... (4:57 PM) : 

Very retro but sweet. I like the second look more. It is still very wearable.


Blogger My Heart Blogged said ... (5:01 PM) : 

The 50's inspired hair is beautiful. I love the pin curls.

Oh my, these ladies look so elegantly retro. Love, love, love it! People used to dress and take care of their appearance better in the old days, and I'm glad this sort of fashion is coming back in popularity. Mad Men's influence maybe?


Blogger Benoit said ... (5:06 PM) : 

I'm speechless


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:08 PM) : 

There is something about a woman wearing fur I find very unappealing


Blogger Unknown said ... (5:15 PM) : 

gorgeous fur


Blogger comme fraiche said ... (5:21 PM) : 

I like the red lipsticks and fur collars; their hair styles remind me of Hollywood back in the 40's & 50's


Blogger caribbelle said ... (5:24 PM) : 

I'm glad you photographed these ladies. They remind me of the women I grew up around including my mother. Even when she's going to the grocery store, she's dressed fabulously!

So glad to see this style on the streets. I love vintage hair styles and before you'd only get to see girls wearing them at burlesque shows.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:07 PM) : 

Fabulous! Love the hair-- and the definition under the eyes, which is all too much erased in most fashion close ups. Thank you for your real pics. - Jean


Blogger looks.before.books said ... (6:10 PM) : 

The curls and raspberry red lips
are so iconic. They also hint of the impending spring

Blogger Unknown said ... (6:35 PM) : 

Love the hairstyle in photo # 1...and the old Hollywood make up of both ladies.



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:57 PM) : 

the red lip seems to be popular choise with the 40s/50s inspired hair.


Anonymous Jessica said ... (6:57 PM) : 

The problem with hair like this is that it needs to be 'done' to look right, and not like you rolled out of bed after a big fancy dress party the night before. In the 40s and 50s women went to a lot of trouble to make sure their hair looked 'done' and 'perfect' and in our low maintenance times it just doesn't work, and maybe looks a bit awkward in fact. Either use the hairspray and setting lotion or please don't try this look!! Ask Dita Von Teese!

Looks like London's gone all war-time on us - the coats, the hair and lips, the 'washer-woman' turban.... lett see how we can twist it a bit... love a retro mix up!

Viva Retro!


Blogger The Fancy Teacup said ... (10:08 PM) : 

Such classy looking women. The lip colors and the fur shawls are so delectable.
much love.


Anonymous ak said ... (10:15 PM) : 

I love their 1940s 'Churchill's still alive and we're fighting Hitler' look. And the red lipstick's really poppin'! They're both giving me Kristin Scott Thomas playing Aunt Mimi in Nowhere Boy.


Blogger Aubrey and Melissa said ... (10:46 PM) : 

I am head over heals in love with that first photo, I love the old hollywood glamor here. So beautiful, stunning. The furs are incredible.

The girl in the bottom photo remionds me so much of Maggie Gyllenhaal.

The red head looks as though she just stepped out of the 1940's, great look

Is anyone else here not liking the fur both on these ladies and all over the catwalks. Please I thought we were past fur.

Like the dark brunette. Hair, fur, lips, old fashioned beauty. Eternal.

Great hairdos but a big NO to the fur!!!


Blogger MELISSA Z. said ... (3:51 AM) : 

She reminds me a woman from another era! Great pics, congrats!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:00 AM) : 

Love the burlesque groove! And am going to assume that these two retro godesses are wearing very vintage or fabulously faux furs. After all, women with that much style & class couldn't possibly be wearing new fur, could they now?


Blogger Joanna Paulsen said ... (4:18 AM) : 

I love this!

Cool fur necks, amazing!


Blogger Hazel said ... (8:25 AM) : 

Aging and harsh. While I respect the vintage aspect ie. I like anything other than the status quo, most women's faces needs a softer frame.


Blogger A said ... (8:34 AM) : 

Gorgeous first picture! It looks like taken in the 1950


Blogger Lúcia said ... (8:40 AM) : 



Anonymous Maryanne said ... (9:09 AM) : 

the first photo channels the
1930's with the marcel wave.

the second channels the 1940's pompadour.


Blogger jackie said ... (10:44 AM) : 

i love these beautiful hairstyles and how they're paired with crimson lips and lovely furs! i'm happy fashion is a cycle sometimes- these vintage styles are great!


Anonymous the Bohmerian said ... (11:51 AM) : 

Not my favorite of hair styles but I do love how well they pair with the furs and the simple makeup.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:52 AM) : 

Lovable! Now I´m looking forward to summer and some definite waves and curls! Then of course the effect of fur will be missing - maybe some pastel chiffon scarves -
Sart, thanks for bringing the fun factor up in fashion!


Anonymous Best of Beehive said ... (12:20 PM) : 

If these pictures were aged, I would've thought they were taken in 50 years ago or so.


Blogger Ev'alapêche said ... (12:22 PM) : 

I love the second one.
Old style is always the best!


Blogger cecilew said ... (1:56 PM) : 

i love these retro hair ! especially the second one.


Anonymous Sara Lua said ... (2:31 PM) : 

I love classic looks. Saves the mind, saves the wallet.

To everyone freaking out over the fur, I agree with you that the new fur fashions on catwalks now make me unhappy. But it is fine to wear vintage fur as these ladies are, because the animal has already been killed and the fur stored or cared for decades. It is better to prize vintage fur than to discard it as the life has already been taken. You can tell what is vintage fur by the fur and styling. New fashions don't cut fur collars as shown by these two photos.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:32 PM) : 

LOVE <333 how do you find all these magnifique people? I never see people like this. or maybe I should start looking :)

Amazing 40's vibe but somehow modern too - gorgeous! Now, where are my rollers?

Love the hair, love the red lips.

Through your photography I've discovered that Europeans smoke like chimneys and wear real fur.

the fur, the coats, the hair, the colors... just like those in the movies.

just done enough to be glamorous & unusual without being too stiff & harsh (Reese Witherspoon & Sharon Stone at the Oscars were an awful warning)


Anonymous tallulah said ... (11:13 AM) : 

I yearn to be that chic and polished but sadly, on an older woman, this forties look just adds years. So, please, all you younger women - 'glam' up and save us all from the laissez-faire attire that we are subjected to on the streets.

As a hairdresser I really like it when people start to play with their hair and have the confidence to try style something slightly out of the ordinary. I also appreciate the imperfectly-perfect vibe.
