Here’s how I’ve been inspired so far.
I also HAVE TO do a version of Dior's New Look. Full confession: I have not so secretly hoped to do this look editorially for a long time, because the opportunity to just dress this way has yet to manifest. I don’t want to have the throw that party (no time to plan it; can’t do it if it isn’t perfect). I’m hoping someone else will take my “Wouldn’t it be awesome if…” hints and finally give me a reason to be Betty Draper. In the mean time, some lucky model will live out my fantasy—wait, isn’t that being a fashion stylist in a nutshell? ;)
Be sure to check Facebook in the next few weeks for pictures of the Miss American Vintage contestants styled by yours truly! For more of what’s inspiring my style direction for the shoot, check out my dedicated board on Pinterest.
