Trend: Retro Cinema Style
Take your cue from Old Hollywood for timeless glam that never goes out of style.
In the 1950s, when a polished sense of glamour was all the rage, elegance was an everyday affair. At least, that's the fantasy photographers like Irving Penn and Richard Avedon rendered so convincingly in black and white, a perfectly poised vision that's once again inspiring la dolce vita as epitomized by Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly — who's currently being lauded with an exhibit of her gowns at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
For style pointers, recline against a prim floral-print pillow and watch Hepburn's Funny Face or Kelly's To Catch A Thief. Step into the spotlight with Restoration Hardware's floor lamp and pick up a set of vintage-inspired SteamLine luggage. (It will look equally smart stacked as extra storage.) Maintain a sense of mystery behind a pair of Oliver Goldsmith sunglasses, then snap onlookers with a chic camera as you roar away in a sleek black car, leaving them wondering: Who was that?
