Last year, Missy of Miss Missy Photography and I put together some beautiful old Hollywood-inspired images. I’ve posted at least one already, but there are more that I’ve saved for a special occasion like this one. As the Christmas season is rapidly approaching, I thought I’d share these festive images.
We chose poses and lighting to emulate various movie star shoots from the 1930s and 1940s by Hollywood glamor photographer George Hurrell, which turned out rather well. I’m always happy with the inspiration and professionalism Missy brings to her work, as it shows in the finished products! More photos after the jump!
Missy did my hair and makeup in an early 1940s style, and I wore my 1930s reproduction Zelda gown by ReVamp vintage. The original 1998 ReVamp line was intended to be limited edition, so mine came with a number. They rethought that decision, however, as this dress and almost all the original line is still available! The price has gone up in the last 17 years (it’s now $480 for off-the-rack sizing), but for a period-correct gown created with vintage couture details in a luxurious red silk charmeuse, you’re getting a good value for the money. This thing has a row of hand-covered buttons down the back, all functional!

Gorgeous photos! I really love how glorious the texture and material of the dress looks in the last photo!
