The height of elegance








I love fashion photography through the decades. These pictures by photographer Henry Clarke are quite exquisite. I love their elegance and simplicity, and that 1950's classic ideal of feminine beauty. I found these photo's on Flickr. Luckily I saved them on my computer because the page unfortunately no longer exists.
