A lesson in style: ’50s fashion

When looking at photos from the ’50s I venture to say that fashion translated unmistakably into style. And we all know that fashion and style are two different things. Women looked so impeccable from head to toe: exquisite clothing complemented by polished hairstyle, usually refined buns, and the undispensable hat and gloves, hence that distinctive attention to details to finish off a glamorous and graceful look. Henry Clarke’s photos of the ’50s fashion captured so well the elegance of the modern woman: young, lively, carefree and seductive. The only thing that’s missing from the picture is a dashing Cary Grant in a Saville Row suit.
