Dream a Little 40’s Dream With Fresh Retro-Beauty Looks
Posted Oct 18, 2011
In this Beauty-Story for the November Issue of Elle Sweden, Frida Gustavsson makes our 40’s-Dream come true in “Frida About Town.” With all the freshness of a young “Norma-Jean”, our strawberry-blonde starlet is styled with vintage barrel-curls pinned back, and retro-waves that fall gently down her back. With all the innocence of that era, this look is a call-back to a time when a kind of “Sweet-Beauty” ran supreme. With the help of Marc Jacobs, Miu Miu, and Dolce & Gabbana our Vintage-Fantasy is fulfilled, with these amazing looks that come straight off the 40’s “Fashion-Page.”
If you’re loving the Young-Fresh thing, but looking to amp it up, go for a little “Pin-up” Chic, and follow in Frida’s footsteps with a red-hot bold lip. This 40’s Cherry/Red lip is what makes the Retro-Vibe come full-circle. With big doe-eyes highlighted by a taupey lid, ample mascara extends out the top lashes only. Slightly darkened brows frame the face, for a Style-Slam. Find your inner “Retro-Girl” and have a Flirty-Fun-Fall.
Thank you for giving the glam 40’s such a great fashion respect. Keep up the great work.
