The glorious Elizabeth Taylor photographed on set during the filming of Suddenly, Last Summer in 1959. I love that green dress…
The models in this photo are Evelyn Tripp (left) and Dovima (center) but does anyone know who the model on the right is? Maybe Lucinda Hollingsworth…?
Audrey Hepburn with big lips shrouded in a flowery scarf on the cover of Harpers Bazaar from April 1956. Lovely as always. Those were the days eh? When a glossy magazine cost just 60 cents!
The one and only Marilyn Monroe and the walk that helped make her famous. What a killer wiggle eh?
In 1953 the BBC created a time-lapse video of the train journey between London and Brighton. 30 years later in 1983 they did exactly the same again, and again 30 years later in 2013. This video shows you the 3 journeys side by side showing how much Britain has changed since the 1950s. It’s […]
The lovely Jean Patchett wearing a lilac gown and amazing red coat photographed for Vogue October 1950. She somehow makes sitting on an ordinary chair into something spectacular!
A lovely candid photo of Audrey Hepburn looking shocked, 1950s! Isn’t it charming?

Audrey Hepburn looking impossibly stylish from the movie Sabrina. I adore her dress, and that cocktail looks delicious!
The fabulous Dean Martin mid-dive into a swimming pool. The dive looks very impressive, but I’m guessing from his facial expression that he’s just realised he’s about to do a huge (and painful) belly flop *ouch*
Elizabeth Taylor and Montgomery Clift in a publicity photo from the 1951 movie: “A Place in the Sun”. I’m guessing they are supposed to be looking wistful, but personally I think they just look a little vacant. A bit like zombies… Now that would have made for a very different movie!
Marilyn Monroe looking very bubbly in the bath. Love the matching lipstick and toe nails!
Alfred Shaheen Honolulu creates beautiful resort bait… color-drenched, gilt-splashed tropical fish hand-printed on fine cotton. For sunning, his string-strap bouffant dress, 8 to 18 17.95 For swimming, his little boy bather, 10 to 20 12.95. Both in lagoon blue, sun yellow or hot pink. Doesn’t lagoon blue sound a lovely colour? It’s such a shame […]
A cheerful cherry-print 1950s bikini modelled by Shirley Deas from Florida, 1955. I’m not sure what to make of that strange hat though? Have you ever seen a hat like that before?! Source and copyright: No known copyright restrictions
A strange but charming model/mannequin swimsuit scene from December 1958 Vogue.
The wonderful Audrey Hepburn chatting with legendary Hollywood costume designer Edith Head in 1953. Photo by Bob Willoughby.
An early pin up photo of a nude Marilyn Monroe pulling a silly grumpy pouty face!
