New Look

A few days ago, I found this pic on Face Hunter. It caught my eye immediately and inspired me to do a post about "New Look".

Christian Dior showed his first collection, called "Carolle Line"(aka "New Look"), in 1947. The shape was very feminine: large bust, small waist, and full skirt. After the war a dramatic change was needed, and the new silhouette became popular very quickly.

I always admired Carrie's ability to pull off almost anything. I think it's because she has such a good figure.

Astute observation - you selected perfect photos to prove the point! The cult of Carrie is responsible for forging the way on the comeback of this trend.

I find the New Look somewhat overrated. Sure, it was very important for fashion then and still is. But it doesn't have that allure that for me is essential.. I don't really see the appeal, same with - say - Audrey Hepburn. After a certain amount of magazine articles all saying the same thing it just kind of washes out.

That polka dot outfit that Carrie wore in Paris is one of my all time favorite Bradshaw outfits. Great post!
