Classy Retro Shoots
Glen Luchford captures Russian model Natalie Vodianova in a retro-themed set of pictures that's reminiscent of the Golden Age of Hollywood. Vodianova's frilly dresses combined with her Marilyn Monroe hairstyle truly bring out the class in Luchford's pictures. The use of lights further highlights the beauty of the model as well.
Implications - Contemporary fashion is strongly influenced by styles and trends of the past. So much so that some 'vintage'-designed clothes are just as expensive, if not more expensive than brand-new clothes. By honing in on consumer's desire to don the clothing of societies past, corporations can capitalize on the nostalgia associated with 'retro'-influenced designs.
