1963: Tania Mallet (Photo by John French)

As Coco Chanel once stated, "“Fashion fades, only style remains the same.” In this set of photographs we look back in time to see how women used to dress, how glamour wasn't just a word mentioned during special occasions but one that symbolized everyday life. Adorned in statement hats, pearls and furs, these pictures show us just how beautiful, classic and glamorous a woman can be.
