In 1907, Maud Wagner traded a date with her husband-to-be for tattoo lessons. She was later to become the first known female tattooist in the U.S and she is absolutely gorgeous. The tattoos, her dress, the way she carries herself. She is just stunning. This is a great portrait of a girl to be remembered.
One can read more about her in the book Bodies of Subversion: A secret History of Women and Tattoo, by Margot Mifflin. The New Yorker has written about it in their article A secret history of women and tattoo.

Even though Marie Antoinette is famous for being good at spending - she did not spend
50 000 Euros on a pair of slippers. But that someone did, in October last year,
when her shoes were sold to the highest bidder at auction house Paris Druout.
The buyer's identity is still a secret.
They are beautiful but clearly we are as good at spending after the Revolution as they were before it...

Well fashion isn't very progressive atleast not high fashion and the world around it.
The cover of Vogue Italia with its first-ever asian cover model is beautiful though. And if you like that 1950's feeling this is perfect. Elegant in that old world way.
