Retro Style Icon..... C.Z. Guest

While I agree that today's fashion magazines & blogs are inspiring, I often think that retro photographs of the 1950's and 60's elite are among the most inspirational. 

Perhaps that's why I enjoy watching Mad Men so much.

Today's particular obsession is the well-dressed socialite, C.Z. Guest.

Loooove this famous photog by Slim Aarons

Mrs. Guest also graces "A Priveleged Life" which needs to grace my coffee
 table immediately.

I am particularly enjoying these photos of Kirsten Dunst channeling C.Z. Guest 
In a 2008 issue of Harper's Bazaar.

Which Retro Style Icons are you inspired by?

On another note, I'm moonlighting at The Semi-Designed Life Today.
Head on over to check out my Guest Post and See what my Decor Style was 
in College vs. Today!

My Dad and his Father, both deceased used to cater society dinners for the Cochran family back in the 1940s in the North Shore area of Massachusetts I believe. They had very fond memories of Lucy C.Z. Cochran Guest and her family!
