The Perfect Suit, 1953

Perfect from head to toe.  Note how she lets her suit be the star by using a smaller handbag and hat.  Look how the buttons elongate the figure from the waist to the hem of the skirt.  And I'll bet there are hidden hooks or buttons to close that collar if you want to.  Note the perfect eyebrows and simple makeup.  And don't forget  your gloves.  To get the look today, use animal printed fabric or faux fur please.  Suit by Raphael, 1953.

Perfect indeed! I know you know that animal prints are HUGE this year, so this inspires me to get going on something with WOW factor like this! Marvelous!

I liked your comments...I don't have the stylist chops to think about the smaller purse and hat, but you did.
Thanks, made me see it in a new way.

Every detail is a delight. The animal print collar frames the face perfectly.

Truly stunning, and I'm glad you pointed out the small bag and hat; they do let that amazing collar be the focal point.
