The 'Malicious Glamour' blog feature galleries of vintage fashion photography dating back to 1910. The blog also features hard-to-find shots of stars, such as Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn. Several classic artists are posted. One particularly frequented photographer is Franco Rubartelli. The Italian photographer often captured his model and lover Verushka. The couple would jetset to fantastical locations and work as a two-person team.

The blog features works with interesting vintage manipulation. The retro take on neons, native-inspired gear and projection work. The site puts modern editorials in a new perspective. While things may seem modern and of creative birthing, the inspiration could likely be traced back to the early days of photography. Allusions in fashion photography are often lost on the non-expert.

The Malicious Glamour blog is visually stunning and a great learning tool for any aspiring fashion aficionado.
