I love the whole vintage look: from the 1940's or 1950's: gorgeous red lips and amazing clothes. Its so classy and looks wonderful. There have been many vintage inspired icons in the past, but sadly, there are less and less vintage beauties. There are, however, some modern day icons who, you can tell, are obviously inspired by the vintage look.
Zooey Deschanel is one of my favourite actresses at the moment and I wrote this post on her a while back. I love how she is so unconventions and optsto do indie movies, instead of big budget one.
Her style is very quirky, feminine and flirtations. Its her own unique style and its clear that, when it comes to fashion, she doesn't follow anyone! Her style is a mixture of indie, and vintage and her usual look is a cute dress, with tights. Her dresses are all very cute and vintage looking.
She accessories with a vintage flair as well. She adds ribbons to her hair and has bows as well. Zooey's carfree and relaxed attitude adds an extra personal feel to her look.

Dita Von Teese
Dita, as you should know, is best known for her burlesque performances. She is the ultimate Burlesque queen.
She has incredible style, with a very strong retro-glam vintage vibe to it. She mixes a 50s throwback style with some modern elements, giving her a perfect style, which she manages to pull off really well. I like that her style and image is completely different than everyone else out there, creating a more fantasy look.
She says that she adopted the 40's pin up look because she felt that she didn't fit in well with any other look. Its so good to see that she never ttrid to be somebody that she's not.
Dita was well on her way to becoming a ballet dancer, and its clear that that past has had an immpact on her preformances. As a teenager, she was intrigued by all things retro and vintage, such as old Hollywood movies. Her inspirations include Bettie Page and she picked her name after the German actress, Dita Parlo.

Scarlett is exactly the kind of icon I've been talking about. She definitely fits into the old Hollywood glamour look. She is so gorgeous and definitely looks the part of a 50's icon. She has often been compared to Marilyn Monroe because of her blonde hair and how she looks in red lipstick.
Her hair is one of my favourite features about her. She wears her hair in really gorgeous soft curls a lot of the time and it does look very 50s.
She has amazing vintage style as well. Her outfits are usually 40's inspired and are really feminine, like they were in that era. She's got great curves and really knows how to use them, making her very elegant and sexy.
A lot of the roles she picks also have quite retro feels to them. I loved her style in 'The Spirit' (its a pretty awesome movie) and in 'The Black Dahlia'.
And her ad campaigns for Dolce & Gabbana are really well done. She looks so stunning in them. We wrote an article about it as well, which you can check out here.

For those of you who don't know her, Duffy is a Welsh singer-songwriter. She has a great voice and her music is very 60's inspired. Her style is really reflectant of her voice as well, and she has wonderful vintage style.
She's often been described as a modern day Bridgitte Bardot and she's well known for her hairstyles and make up. Her make up is very vintage-esque: she wears a lot of fake eyelashes and very thick eyeliner.
Her style is pretty classic. She sticks to black and white, but sometimes adds a pop of colour to her looks with a bright accessory. She has a perfect retro glam style. Her dresses are very cute and 50s inspired.

Check back in a couple of days, where I'll be looking more into modern day vintage.
