Retro Looks In The Modern World: Aime Le Cinema

As much as the modern fashion world looks forward it also continually looks back in time. Here we explore Retro Looks in the Modern World.

Lily Cole looks amazing in this editorial called " Aime Le Cinema" featured in Elle France (May 2010). Photographer Kayt Jones has exquisitely captured a true film noir cinematic quality here and the clothes and hair styles are to die for!

Retro Looks In The Modern World: Sharin Foo of The Raveonettes

I fell in love with The Raveonettes with the release of their first album in 2002, Whip It On. Mixing 1950's rock 'n roll, 60's garage, a strong Jesus and Mary Chain influence, and a dark film noir cinematic sound had me enthralled. Six years later I'm still intrigued and will be seeing them perform for the third time tonight!! Sharin Foo, the bassist/vocalist, has become one of the coolest ladies in rock without even trying. I love her vintage style. A modern Hitchcock Blonde with a guitar.

Retro Looks In The Modern World: Dior S/S 2010

I nearly died when I saw the Christian Dior Spring 2010 RTW collection shown in Paris earlier this month. Inspired by my favorite loves... film noir, lingerie, and femme fatales... you can see why! Galliano was specifically inspired by Lauren Bacall (image above) and it showed on the runway where the models wore Bacall hair and a serious face. Here are some of my favorite looks from the collection.
