Airport Beauty ...

Love this capture of Brigitte Bardot arriving in Rome in 1961. Such a beauty. I think it's great how proper people used to dress for travel back then. Something tells me this gentleman was more than happy to escort Ms. Bardot through the airport. I see hints of Claudia Schiffer and Kate Moss in her face. Don't you?

I love this. I remember my grandmother was always appalled at what I wore to the airport. "Those are your travel clothes??" she would say. At the time I thought she was crazy, but now that I'm all growned up, I would love to get fancy and sip martinis on a plane. Not so sure about the smoking thing, though...

The last time I flew I had to wear nice clothes because of the situation and let me tell you how awesome it was. I really felt important and sophisticated. I am determined to travel dressed up.

I love how nice people dressed on a daily basis, even for household chores. Hair was done, lipstick on. I'm trying to pick up these habits because even though I'm a stay at home mom, this is my life, and I want to dress for it.

Love the look of the 60s! So much was changing across the globe but everyone still looked fabulous. Brigitte Bardot is a fabulous

SO much Claudia that I even thought it was her at first!!! I wish we still dressed up for travel. Why did that end? The celebs always look SO much more disheveled on travel days. Maybe it's because they have to do it so frequently?
