Bring back glamour with Miners Movie Queens

An exemplary bit of Seventies-does-Deco, I’m sure you’ll agree.

Scanned from Honey, November 1974.

Nighty nighties are fine, filmy and thoroughly feminine. In seductive see-through shades like damson, russet, purple and black. Long and lovely, sheer and sexy. It’s quite transparent, Nighty Nighties are made for the romantic at heart.

It’s waterproof, smudge-proof and fade-proof too! Natural Wonder has a completely new kind of eyeshadow that doesn’t crease. It’s simply called ‘Crease-Proof Cream Eyeshadow’. All day long it stays smooth, fresh and pretty. Colour just won’t creep into creases. Won’t fade or streak, it’s even waterproof. In lots of gorgeous Natural Wonder colours.

Boots, Bourdin and a very Good Boy

1970s, charles jourdan, guy bourdin, Harpers Bazaar, Vintage Adverts
Confident £37. Ukraine £30.

These seemingly endless adverts Bourdin did for Charles Jourdan are always little works of genius. Also, from a current perspective, I’m enjoying the names of the boots.

Photographed by Guy Bourdin.

Electric Leather

Switch on to spots and stripes.
Flocked on to real leather by The Chelsea Cobbler.

I think this was one of my first ever scans, a very long time ago. It still makes my heart sing when I see it, so I thought it was worthy of a rescan/repost.

Somebody, somewhere, said it was a wedding or something

1970s, Advertorials, Arthur Hill, cosmopolitan, jim lee, ossie clark, Random Ossies in Adverts, Vintage Adverts

A curious but beautifully shot advertorial from a copy of Cosmopolitan, which I think is meant to be advertising the drink but is also rather a charming portrayal of a bohemian Seventies wedding. Unsurprising given that Jim Lee is behind the photographs, and also featuring a couple of Ossie Clark dresses, which I’m always happy to document.

Photographed by Jim Lee and Arthur Hill for Blanc Foussy by Grants of St James’s.

Scanned from Cosmopolitan, August 1974.

Wella Spray – it holds and brushes out and holds and smells nice and holds and resists damp and holds… Wella – we know about hair.

I posted an alternate version of this, many years ago, but this one shows you far more of the amazing collaged wall behind the gloriously jumbled dressing table.

Scanned from Honey, June 1972.
