    Carmen Miranda - apparently she was five foot nothing and really needed all those platforms!

    [​IMG]Marilyn LOVED Ferragamo heels.
    [​IMG]Charles Jourdan. Wonder if models had to be double jointed too, this pose looks super uncomfortable.

    There is a small write up and extract photos from 'Grand Illusions by Richard Lawton' here
    www.flairinaladysboudoir.blogspot.com
    It really is a fantastic book, such wonderful inspiration from the early 1920s right through to the 1940s.

    I just received my new book this week and had a little more time to go through it this weekend and I would recommend this as highly as I would recommend her first book Vintage Hairstyling. For a little more info I posted a quick reveiw on my blog about it as well. http://livingvintage.blogspot.com/

    I ordered mine yesterday and it is being posted out today!!

    Couldn't find it on the UK Amazon so I ordered it from the same site I got her vintage hair one from.

    I got the book I think it is lovely, the styles are maybe not really spectacular, I think I learn more on youtube from the tutorials, but I love the history of make up
    and it is such a great lookbook with all lovely pictures, I love it and it is great worth buying
