Fun photos, OP.

I love 50s/early 60s fashion photography, and particularly, the models. So much sexier and more playful than contemporary fashion models. And gorgeous.

And Babs Paley... well. While she was born to wear haute couture, she always manages to look both hard and completely empty in every photo of her, no matter how stunning her clothes are.

I don't know. There's a pediatrician coldness to all the linked ladies. I prefer the dustbowl women.

Beautiful socialites of the past. Particularly love the shots of them perched in those old Chrysler Imperials with the satellite tail lamps.

Why can't women dress like that today? Gorgeous photos, thanks for sharing OP.

p.s. I think the one model from the Dana Perfume ad (model unidentified), April 14, 1967 looks a lot like Raquel Welch, but she was already a star so it can't be her, right?

Proof that the saying you can never be too thin or two rich must have started about that time.

Gloria Vanderbilt looks rather ethnic.

Interesting observation, R9. I was thinking as I went through the photos that the models were just as thin as what we say today. These are glamour models and not pin-ups a la Monroe, etc.

Yes they were really thin. Imo the vintage models are more beautiful than anyone we have now

Gloria Vanderbilt was so pretty. What happened?

I know GV was the "IT" girl.

Gloria Vanderbilt had such a "modern" face. Almond eyes and full pouty lips weren't the fashion in her day, I wonder if she was thought of as pretty when she was young?

If she were young today, her face would be all over the fashion magazines (and she'd have an eating disorder because all fashionistas would tell her she's fat).

The 1950s were, by far, the sexiest decade of the 20th century.

Men who were considered handsome looked macho and every aspect of women's attire, hair and makeup was unmistakably feminine, almost to the point of caricature. It's no wonder the Barbie Doll came from this sensibility.
