Kate Winslet Goes Vintage for Elle Magazine

Actress Kate Winslet is gracing the February cover of Elle Magazine U.K.

The “Titanic” co-star is captured as a young tight-dress-wearing rock chick on the cover. In the spread, however, the striking Winslet is decked out in retro-modern and glamorous ensembles from years past.

Fashions incorporated in the vintage-style editorial ensembles included a tight tube skirt in pink accompanied by a dazzling eye-catching, skin-tight Lycra mini dress and a 1960's cap.

Implications - Due to the recent recession, budget-conscious consumers shopped at more affordable vintage and thrift shops. This caused a resurgence of retro styles that consumers now appreciate for their rarity and elements of antiquity. Companies who wish to appeal to their desired demographic should incorporate vintage elements into their products and advertising.
