Movie Star Inspiration from the 1950’s & 1960’s

The movie stars of yester year had a certain je ne sais quoi, I think you’ll agree. It’s no wonder a revival of fashion and style from the 50’s and 60’s has proven to be so popular over the years and especially most recently. TV shows like Mad Men, tea length wedding dresses, men’s slim fit suits and skinny ties, women’s hour glass enhancing dresses, china cups and saucers (bit random but true) are all popular today and are all influenced by the 1950’s and 60’s. Add to these the music, hairstyles and makeup influence and sure we could with a little imagination, be right back there.

With this in mind, this week I decided that our beloved Movie Stars from this era will be the inspiration behind a fashion fix. I chose four fabulous men and four gorgeous women stars. Their ‘je ne sais quoi’ is timeless and their style and coolness seems effortless and natural. I sourced items that match their outfits and they are all available to purchase now in Ireland or you can order them online and get them delivered here, should you want to recreate the look for yourself. Why not find your inner movie star … I’d love to hear your opinions so don’t forget you can comment below the post …
