Modern Pin Up!

I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE vintage! So everything having to do with the Old Hollywood style intrigues me, even if it is an updated and more modern version of it. So, I came accross an interesting contest on youtube and I decided to enter. The theme was “Updated old Hollywood look”.

I got my inspiration from the Moschino 2009-2010 a/w runway look, that featured a retro but modern 50's makeup.

I added a bold color between the two lines, I did my hair in my own “pin up style”, et voilà:








The beautiful pictures were taken by my brother, who happens to be a professional Photographer!

What do you think of this style?
Do the runway looks inspire you?
