Old-Hollywood Glamour - French ELLE

It is always a pleasant surprise to see lingerie featured on the cover of a major fashion publication - and in this case it's French ELLE!

For February, the cover story features Laetitia Casta wearing an assortment of sexy lingerie pieces. We think that most of the lingerie is vintage, since we don't see any designer credits in the story (or at least we don't see any...if you know who did what, please let us know so we can give proper credit!).
What we particularly love about this shoot, and the reason why we're posting it, is to show how lingerie can be classic, sophisticated, stylish and glamorous. The theme of the shoot is a celebration glamour icons of the silver screen, and photographer Vincent Peters perfectly captured the look! All of these styles are something that can be worn underneath clothing, which shows how sexy intimate apparel can also be practical.
Some of our favorite old-Hollywood glamour pieces in our boutique are the Alice & Astrid Long Satin Silk Gown, and the Beau Bra Long Gown. Both pieces look so cute with the ivory Fifi Chachnil angora cardigan worn with it. Actually, pretty much anything by Fifi Chachnil has an old-Hollywood glamour style!

I agree. They do look very vintage and they're great! I would love to dress up for my loved one in one of those with a pair of vintage sunglasses on. Something about the mystery in my eyes that they can't see is what's keeps em wondering.
