The New Old Hollywood Glamor:Turbans

I have always admired the glamor of Old Hollywood. When I was a kid my grandma and I would watch old movies together, and I was struck by the style of ladies like Marlene Dietrich, Greta Garbo,Bettie Davis and Grace Kelly. The ladies I photograph are a reminder that glamor is always in style. Turbans are not only one of my favorite accessories to photograph,they are also an easy and practical way to add a bit of vintage style into any wardrobe.

If I could pull off a turban, I SO. WOULD.

I guess I'll have to wait another 20 years until I'm cool enough. :)

Fantastic as always! Love turbans myself for an instant dose of the 40s. Sporting one today in fact, and just to prove turbans can be for all, I'm 34!

I don't know why I didn't know your blog. Now it's my obsession, I think you are a genious, and I love the fact you give voice at someone that in our society, most of the time, hasn't voice. I wrote a post on my blog about your job! Valeria

I have a huge crush on turbans and this post really made my day. They are one of the most amazing accessories.

Heather said...

Love this. You don't have to tie a turban, btw...you can also buy them already made. I have a very chic one made of Missoni fabric from Barbara Feinman on East 7th street in the East Village. I wore it to my hat-themed 36th bday party.

I love those turbans... I have been dreaming about a summer collection, shot on the beach, with a few turbans thrown in. These ladies have definitely inspired me even further. I know they are older than me, but i think as long as you have the right attitude and confidence, anything is possible!

J'aime beaucoup l'excentricité de ces "Old ladies", elles portent divinement le turban.
Et elles sont d'une jeunesse incroyable.
Amicalement.

Translation :
I like very much the eccentricity of these " Old ladies ", they wear divinely the turban.
And they are of an incredible youth.

Wow. These ladies look great for being so "mature". Its good to see a stylist targeting seniors. They like to look good also.Orange County Web Design

I don't really know if I have ever seen anyone more strikingly beautiful than the woman in the green turban with the green flower on her jacket. She is also in a blue turban with red flower on her jacket. What an inspiration to this 62 year old. I just discovered this blog and what a revelation!
