PIN-UP GIRL GLAMOUR
The fashion-fabulous fifties are alive and well, 50 years hence! In today's post, Couture Carrie references both classic and modern takes on the pin-up theme.
First, recall one of the “originals”: Brigitte Bardot! Go to http://www.hollywoodpinup.com/pin-ups/_bardot.html
Hollywood’s interpretation, in a recent issue of Vanity Fair? This playful soft-serve ice cream dream, the lovely Transformers star Rachael Taylor. Visit: http://www.vanityfair.com/fame
Of course, the way to channel this eternally sexy look is with a suitably vamped-up bikini, like this Victoria's Secret retro bandeau top and ultra high waist bottom (at left), complete with adorable front patch pockets. This and many other gorgeous suits are on sale right now at victoriassecret.com! If you prefer a maillot, try the Chio Roma yellow halter suit pictured above, available at mollybrownsswim.com. Gorgeous gams deserve to be showcased this summer, in retrolicious style!
