The Please! Magazine #13 issue exhibits an assortment of 1950s apparel. The decade has long been a go-to in the fashion and broadcast industries, brandishing high-rise a-line skirts and floral dresses in popular shows like Mad Men. The looks have been similarly popular off screen, in large part due to a certain coy charm.

Italian model Caterina Ravaglia is featured in this Please! Magazine editorial. Her appearances in Grey Magazine, Self Service and i-D Magazine coincide with her mastery of the retro Mari Sarai set here, aligning herself with the decade's particular brand of female modesty. Below-the-knee hemlines are seen almost entirely throughout, and where they are not present, thick opaque tights do an excellent job of hiding Ravaglia's skin.
