A friend of mine sent me this issue of Vogue last week. October 1946 closed at 312 pages and cost .35 cents. Georgian, Jessica Daves was Editor and renowned Alexander Liberman, Art Director. The cover highlights the subtle look of 1946 beauty which depended on..."A softly tinted complexion. A vivid mouth. Notable eyes. And hair, shining and serenely waved." I am loving every page of the issue as the inspiration continues...
Patterns in nature by Horst [a leaf in a botanical garden].
Advertising images by Vertes.
A dramatic portrait by Horst of Mrs. Fulton Cutting, Junior at her house in Southampton—in a story about fashion and country-life. "Short dinner clothes are a natural love of hers; fits her schedule of essentially simple country-life entertaining, quick dips into party life in town." The dress was made-to-order at Hattie Carnegie.
And, don't you just love these chic country suits worn with Bernardo sandals [barely-shoes]? Perfect for a quick dip into party life in town!
