The ELLE 50s Lady in Waiting editorial continues the retro fashion fad in a serious way by completely embracing the 50s era from head to toe. Yet even as it does that, this photo shoot doesn't lose its touch on the modern world. Instead, it manages to bridge the gap between the two generations without compromising either.
Shot by fashion photographer Thomas Whiteside for the magazine's January 2012 issue, the ELLE 50s Lady in Waiting editorial is dripping in style and sophistication. Perfect for the fashion-conscious royal and lady-like socialite, the photo shoot features vintage-inspired silhouettes from such fashion houses as Fendi, Sportmax, Louis Vuitton and Dior. Starring model Suzie Bird, who was impeccably outfitted by fashion editor Christopher Niquet, this editorial is the definition of elegance. As its subtitle states, "Be unforgettable in clothes that last a lifetime."
