Play at being a sparkling sexy Forties’ star. Outshine them all in this silver waistcoat and matching turban from Bus Stop. Wear it with a slinky black velvet or satin pants. Glitter up your eyelids and put a sprinkling of litter on your cheekbones. Bring your hair forward in curls under the turban, pop on a dark plummy lipstick, and you’ll really look like a super Forties’ star.
