Fall 2010 Trend: The 1950's


The fashion world is channeling the 1950's this fall with an emphasis on style icons including Brigitte Bardot, Sophia Loren and Grace Kelly.  Louis Vuitton's Fall 2010 Ready-to-Wear Collection was even titled "And God Created Woman", a 1956 French film starring Bardot.  Across the pond, London's Victoria & Albert Museum is currently showing an exhibit featuring Grace Kelly's wardrobe from films including High Society and Rear Window.  The exhibit will also explore the evolution of her personal style as Princess Grace of Monaco, from the outfit she wore to her first meeting with Prince Rainier in 1955 to her haute couture gowns of the 1960s and '70s by her favorite couturiers including Dior, Balenciaga, Givenchy and Yves St Laurent.
