Glamour At Its Best







I haven't blogged much in the past week but I was totally inspired with the discovery of these gorgeous fashion and beauty illustrations from the 1950's. Wouldn't it be cool if we could incorporate more of this style in editorial and advertising today? Photographs are amazing but these illustrations are pretty exciting too! There's an element of fantasy and ultimately, the artists interpretation that makes them special. 

Enjoy the finds, courtesy of http://www.hairarchives.com, Al Parker, Joe de Mers and Coby Whitmore, respectively. The work of these three artists were regularly featured in the top fashion magazines of the time, Ladies Home Journal and Good Housekeeping.

I couldn't agree more!! Illustration can go far beyond photography in bringing a reader into a story.
