These picture are from a 1940's fashion magazine. I think they are very fashion forward and could even be pulled of today.
I love the fur on these coats. Though, being in the 1940's they probably did not have animal rights activists, so the fur is probably real, but still beautiful. I love the hat on the left, both my obsessions, bows and fur.
This picture made me laugh. Due to the nations current involvement in war there was a fabric shortage, so women had to be crafty. This liquid stocking is apparently similar to eyeliner and women would draw a line down the back of their legs to give the illusion that they were wearing stockings, pretty crafty!
Rosie the Riveter, a feminist icon of the 1940's. She represents the many women that replaced men at the factory jobs as they were sent to war.
This picture below is of Ava Gardner, an actress of the 1940's. I love how she was considered sexy, if you will, but she is still wearing clothes! Amazing.
