Janet Reger: Beautiful Lingerie

1970s, brian duffy, janet reger, Vintage Adverts, Vogue

The Belle Epoque styling in this advert is superb, from the hair and accessories through to the gloriously curvaceous model. Janet Reger adverts were always in a league of their own, and I think this may possibly be one of the Brian Duffy ones.

Gold shoes for day, that’s for the birds.

1970s, chelsea cobbler, shoes, tessa traeger, Vintage Adverts, Vogue
High-heeled shoe on the thinnest of platforms; the heel, the toe and the lacing in shiny gold kid, the rest of the shoe in white kid. A natural progression from the glittery day clothes of winter. Some shoes are all gold, others combine gold with a multitude of contrasting colours. This shoe by Richard Smith for The Chelsea Cobbler. A golden shot in the arm for shoes.

Photographed by Tessa Traeger.
