    I loved this editorial and wasn’t surprised by the heavy 1950s interest considering both the Prada & Louis Vuitton F/W 2010 collections….not to mention the strong Madmen craze. Harper’s Bazaar had a lovely 1950s inspired editorial, too, featuring Katherine Heigl. But I’m a huge fan of Natalia’s and was partial to the Vogue interpretation. Either way, I love it all! Recently I visited an exhibit showing at the Nashville, TN Frist Center for the Visual Arts which featured gorgeous creations from the “Golden Age of Couture” (Paris and London, 1947-1957). Image feather embellished evening gowns by Pierre Balmain, sharp afternoon ensembles by Christian Dior, and stunning photographic compositions by Cecil Beaton and Irving Penn. It was spectacular and made me ask the question, do we care less or more about our daily ware than our daintily clad mothers and grandmothers? There was something special about the way they approached dressing and appearance. (Sorry for the long comment, just thought I’d share.)

    The last photo was my favorite. Im atually not as much of a fan of the styling as I thought I would be. But the hair and makeup is fantastic, and she looks amazing! As does Ewan of course. :]
