After electric coloured disco leggings of 80s, square shouldered blazers and high-waisted tiny denim shorts of 90s the world of fashion breathed in and entered a new millennium with other trends and ideas. But you know what many fashionistas and even designers say: fashion goes by but style is something you can keep. What makes people wear something that was relevant 50-60 years ago? I can't ask them but can review their looks and take some notes.
Form-fitting, waist-ruffled dresses, double-breasted coats,polka dot, flared skirts - all these details bring us to good old Hollywood. And of course when every woman adds some of her attitude to it, past becomes present, vintage becomes trendy and...Ba-dum-ba-dum-ba-doodly-dum-boo!
Let's see who wears it and how.
Not mentioning retro style suits her so much, her work often demands it.
'The Amazing Spider-Man's' girlfriend didn't have any retro looks in that famous movie, she mostly wore white coat because of her character work. But in her real life and other movies Emma Stone sometimes brings that old Hollywood mood.
From her very first 'I Kissed A Girl' video she slightly reminded me of Betty Page. But with time she definitely brought her own retro vision to a modern pop stage.
Quote: "being a redhead and not having very conventionally modern looks, it was confusing for people and they didn't know exactly where to put me". Despite that, Jessica made it on TV, big screen and even on Broadway. And yes, we can see she likes kinda emphasizing her 'not modern' style.
Dita Von Teese
I could start from her but it would ruin the whole intrigue. You don't need to present this Burlesque queen: pale skin, ultra red lipstick and classy silhouette makes everyone recognize her. It reeeally hard to catch her wearing something different than retro from head to toe. Seems like she took a time machine from 30s-50-s to be famous nowadays.
