    Gorgeous fur! I think I prefer the hair of the second, but the outfit of the first. Beautiful red lips too.

    Fabulous. I love when it becomes popular for women to coif their hair once again. Seems to come and go unfortunately.

    Very well spotted! This is indeed a style of hair (ok similar styles of hairdo) that are very very London at the moment!

    Mad Men influence?

    Love the hair, yes! Love the lips and collars, too.

  13. Very posh! I love that retro styling. Only wish I had the patience to work my hair into similar styles.

    Very retro but sweet. I like the second look more. It is still very wearable.

    The 50's inspired hair is beautiful. I love the pin curls.

    Oh my, these ladies look so elegantly retro. Love, love, love it! People used to dress and take care of their appearance better in the old days, and I'm glad this sort of fashion is coming back in popularity. Mad Men's influence maybe?

    the red lip seems to be popular choise with the 40s/50s inspired hair.

  38. Jessica

    March 6, 2011 at 6:57 pm

    The problem with hair like this is that it needs to be 'done' to look right, and not like you rolled out of bed after a big fancy dress party the night before. In the 40s and 50s women went to a lot of trouble to make sure their hair looked 'done' and 'perfect' and in our low maintenance times it just doesn't work, and maybe looks a bit awkward in fact. Either use the hairspray and setting lotion or please don't try this look!! Ask Dita Von Teese!

    I love their 1940s 'Churchill's still alive and we're fighting Hitler' look. And the red lipstick's really poppin'! They're both giving me Kristin Scott Thomas playing Aunt Mimi in Nowhere Boy.

    Love the burlesque groove! And am going to assume that these two retro godesses are wearing very vintage or fabulously faux furs. After all, women with that much style & class couldn't possibly be wearing new fur, could they now?

    Aging and harsh. While I respect the vintage aspect ie. I like anything other than the status quo, most women's faces needs a softer frame.

    I love classic looks. Saves the mind, saves the wallet.

    To everyone freaking out over the fur, I agree with you that the new fur fashions on catwalks now make me unhappy. But it is fine to wear vintage fur as these ladies are, because the animal has already been killed and the fur stored or cared for decades. It is better to prize vintage fur than to discard it as the life has already been taken. You can tell what is vintage fur by the fur and styling. New fashions don't cut fur collars as shown by these two photos.

    I yearn to be that chic and polished but sadly, on an older woman, this forties look just adds years. So, please, all you younger women – 'glam' up and save us all from the laissez-faire attire that we are subjected to on the streets.
