Call it obsession, call it appreciation, call it whatever you want – I love fashion photography and I think that everything about an artistic, stylish, and beautiful photograph is fascinating. I especially appreciate vintage pictures because they take you back to an era in time and style that you may have never experienced and one that will never occur again, regardless of the cycle of trends. To capture so much meaning and inspiration in a still shot says a lot, and I could honestly browse through vintage photos for hours. They’re so fun and influential. I can’t get enough of the cat eye sunglasses in this first picture. The second picture actually comes from an amazing and new exhibition called “Stars en Dior” which views Christian Dior and his relationships with some of the most iconic stars of cinema. The exhibit opens tomorrow and ends September 23rd at the Christian Dior Museum in Granville, France.

How funny is this throwback video of the first Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show back in 1995? When I first watched this I honestly thought that it was more dated than it is. I think that it’s safe to say that they’ve evolved since then with their now multi-million dollar over-the-top shows with celebrity performances, diamond-covered lingerie, and themed runway segments. They’ve now literally turned this runway show into a worldwide, televised event that millions of people look forward to every year. It’s an understatement to say that they’ve since changed.
Now compare that to some snippets from this year’s past show; it floors you how much things can change in 16 years!
