This photograph appeared in the American edition of Vogue fashion magazine. It epitomises the glamour of 1930s fashion and captures the desirable, slinky look of the period. Here you can see a dress made of clinging, extravagant and luxurious fabrics. The models' hair is styled close to the head with gentle 'finger waves' along the hairline. Vogue
