Fashun >> Pierre Balmain, 1954

 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.
