Love these photos unearthed by Brooklyn fashion blogger Sighs and Whispers taken for Life Magazine from backstage at a Pierre Balmain couture show. What an amazing snapshot of a bygone, and oh-so-glamorous, era.
Also interesting to compare to current photos we see from backstage at fashion shows! Don't these models seem much older and more decidedly feminine than runway models today? I feel like these women look very mature and elegant.
