Style Tips: The 1950's are Back!

Sunday 10:18 AM, 21/11/2010
British model Daisy Lowe usually has a punky mix and match look, but she gives herself a flam makeover with a 1950's feel dress and pretty heels. She has kept her rough hair and glam-rock makeup look though. A great combo for her! Women had curves in the 1950's and at Louis Vuitton's Autumn/Winter 2010 runway show, models like Laeticia Casta were chosen to walk the show to show off the sexier, softer 50's sihouettes. Laeticia looks like a real woman and isn't normal runway skinny and it started a trend! Curves are back in fashion! Dita Von Teese has created her personal style around the 1940's and 1950's and she always looks so beautiful with her hair and makeup perfectly done. She also accesorises her looks in a smart way. Add a touch of the 50's to your look with vintage jewelry and sunglasses, a wavey hairdo, red lips and ultra glam nails. Sophia Vergara is smoking hot in the sparkly Louis Vuitton 50's-inspired dress. Even in this lady-lake cut she is super-sexy! A nice change from the obvious short and tight party dress! Always ready to try out a new trend Rachel Bilson looks adorable in this pretty belted print dress, also from the Louis Vuitton Autumn 2010 collection. Eva Mendes was sweet and sexy in this retro-feel swing skirt and ponytail look recently. We love how she has combined the really modern nude trend to keep it fresh and right now. Milla Jovovich was a total knockout in this 50's-inspired gown at Cannes earlier this year. We love how she is wearing a rough-edged almost mo-hawk hairdo with the ultra-glam and feminine multi-textured dress! Swing skirts weren't the only popular silhouette in the 50's. The tube style, belted dress like Maggie Grace is wearing here, were also hot back then and they are just as hot right now. Again its all about modernising, you don't have to look like you have raided your granny's closet to look 1950's glam! We adore the way Gwyneth Paltrow styled up her Louis Vuitton! First of all the cut-out neckline is very sexy and defiinitely brings this look into 2010 and then her hair! Its all chic and neat in the front and then towards the back it goes a little punky! Nicole Kidman makes such a pretty 1950's housewife! She proved that in her movie "The Stepford Wives" and here she has kind hinted back to that look with the fabric and cut of this dress. Pumps and stillettos are also a must for the 50's!
The 1950's will always be remembered as a breakthrough time for fashion. Christian Dior became famous and as a major luxury brand and he his tight waisted dresses with full and shorter skirts became the major trend of the time. For the first time ever, clothes were made around the taste of younger women and after the war there was a big move towards glamour and spending money on looking beautiful. Older women chose more hour glass shapes and younger girls wore big swing skirts and everyone was dressed up smartly all the time, with full makeup, pearls and heels!

The hit TV series "Mad Men" starring Christina Hendricks and January Jones has inspired many fashionistas and designers, especially Louis Vuitton's Marc Jacobs to bring back these lady-like styles with an updated, modern twist of course! Whether you want to go full on like Dita Von Teese or just have a hint of 50's glamour like Eva Mendes and Maggie G. We have the inspiration for you!
