Modeling a 1930s Gown
Isn’t this a cute gown with a little overcoat? I think it’s from the 1930s. The blue in the sheer overjacket really pops with a little bit of a Kodachrome effect.
Emily, my model for the day, already had naturally curly Shirley Temple hair, so didn’t need any retro hair styling at all. We followed an illustration and did her eyes and lips to look like 1930s makeup. I love Emily’s diverse expressions and poses. She is not a professional model, just a normal girl with a natural 1930s look! These studio pictures were simple and cute.
What a fun retro shoot!
