(26) 1952, Baby!
8 x 6, oil
private collection
I love and adore this--it is a fashion advertisement from Charm Magazine, dated 1952. It reminds me of the gorgeous clothes Grace Kelly wore in Hitchcock's "Rear Window"-- back when women took fashion seriously, and would never dream of leaving the house without their hats and gloves....I know, I know...I was born in the wrong era where sweat pants are a fashion epidemic.
"I have two kinds of clothes: those that have paint on them--and those that WILL"...Ken Auster (ouch, so do I)
