Scarlett O'Hara Fashion



 Remembering the incomparable Vivien Leigh (Scarlett O'Hara) on her birthday today.
When one thinks of screen legend Vivien Leigh, one invariably also thinks about her arguably most famous role as Scarlett O'Hara.
Leigh and O'Hara became forever intertwined after "Gone With The Wind" earned the actress a Best Actress Oscar in 1939 and the raven-haired beauty went on to star in another Academy Award-winning performance as Blanche DuBois in "A Streetcar Named Desire."
Now considered one of Old Hollywood's most talented and beautiful celebrities (Leigh died 1967), it is no wonder that anything Laurence Olivier's wife touched turned into gold, which is why the Victoria & Albert Museum in England has acquired the silver screen star's archiver.





Walter Plunkett  was the costume designer for Gone With The Wind . 
He made over 500 costumes for the film. There was no Oscar category for costumes, so his work on the film was not recognized. 
Years later he received the Oscar for costuming “An American in Paris.”




Any true "Gone With the Wind" star has to appreciate Scarlett's astounding focus when it came to wearing only the 
frilliest and poofiest of dresses, even when the entire country was embroiled in the Civil War. 
Even when her first husband died! O'Hara famously ripped off the curtains of her home in order to fashion a dress
 to lure Rhett Butler. Now she is an inspiration for all fashion lovers around the world.

Infinite Obsession - Yayoi Kusama






Fashion is Art, so it´s really comprehensive to use and artist to do fashion.
At 10 years of age, this virtuous Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama,
also known as the Priestess of Polka Dots , started painting her renowned dots and webs 
as a result of her visual and auditory hallucinations caused by experiences that terrified her.
Through art, she found a way of calming her obsessive and depressive feelings.




Throughout the years, she’s been involved in large paintings, soft sculptures, 
and environmental sculptures using mirrors and electric lights, happenings, body paint, festivals,
fashion shows and anti-war demonstrations. 
In 2012, she collaborated with Louis Vuitton’s creative director Marc Jacobs to create the

“LOUIS VUITTON × YAYOI KUSAMA Collection.”

Lily Collins, Portrait, Style





This girl really knows how to do it!
she has class and style and a kind of an old hollywood glamour,
and that´so hard to find by this days. 
She reminds me a little bit to the eternal fashion icon Audrey Hepburn.
In my illustration, I started to play with ink and other stuffs, to get a different texture,
hope you like it 
XOXO
