Embodying Old Hollywood Glamour…
Old Hollywood glamour is something I continually aspire to achieve. It’s that elegance, charisma and alluring iconic beauty that exudes unmistakable ‘jena se qua’ or something special you cannot quite place.
Elegance and glamour never goes out of style. Yet it is difficult to emulate. It is innate. What makes someone elegantly glamorous? Is it their clothes, style, behaviour? Maybe it is how they hold themselves and their self-belief? Icons of poise and sophistication – Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Jackie Kennedy, to name but a few – ticked all of those boxes. And their elegance is timeless – continuing to inspire and delight today.
The editorials below all celebrate that allure of Old Hollywood glamour and timeless beauty. From Crystal Renn’s decedent editorial for Vogue Spain; to the light-filled 50’s inspired beauty of Emma Stone’s shoot for Vanity Fair; then finally Rachael Taylor’s glamorous pics for Vogue Australia – all show striking beauty is truly timeless.
Crystal Renn wears opulent gowns from Gucci, L’Wren Scott, Prabal Gurung, Loewe and others. Meanwhile, Emma Stone charms in striking red and white pieces from Chanel, Chloé and Oscar De la Renta, among others. While Rachael Taylor goes Gucci glam for Vogue Australia.

About Kate Moss
Born in Croydon, England, Moss was discovered in 1988 at the age of 14 at JFK Airport in New York City. Shooting to fame in 1993 with a evocative ad campaign for Calvin Klein; Moss changed the look of modelling in the 90’s. She brought into focus the ‘heroin chic’ look and ‘size zero’ fashion. Of this Moss said; “It was just the time. It was a swing from more buxom girls like Cindy Crawford and people were shocked to see what they called a ‘waif’.
Moss has starred in countless campaigns for high-end labels, from; Gucci, Dior, Dolce & Gabbana, Yves Saint Laurent, Calvin Klein, Chanel, Burberry and Bulgari. As well as having worked with the most renowned fashion photographers in industry, from Mario Testino, to Mario Sorrenti, Steven Klein and Juergen Teller.
Still commanding the runway spotlight, recently closing the Louis Vuitton Fall 2011 collection, Moss has also launched a line of clothing with Topshop.
