Like old postcards, no?
Beautiful and haunting at the same time.

"Well the music was rubbish. Well these are the days of bands like S Club 7 and the Spice Girls. I mean they are great for what they were but for someone who read a lot of books and engaged in conversation with people quite a lot, I felt if I'm going to be a pop star I want to be a real pop star and I want to say real things."

In a mix of summer fun and eco awareness, Muse magazine chose to feature three green-friendly supermodels on their #22 cover: Gisele Bündchen, Angela Lindvall, and Isabeli Fontana. Each model has done her part to help save the world: from a position as the UN Environmental Ambassador to composting to recycling and sustainable farming. Muse plays with a combination of high fashion editorials and collages for their covers - incorporating the requisite summer beach shots with black and white imagery and cut-and-paste elements.
What is a 'teddy girl'?"The teddy girls of 1950s London -- their sartorial assertiveness contrasted with the bombed out environments they occupied and their feisty appropriation of male styles (often down to the classic duck-tail haircut) set them apart from the standard Fifties Feminine."
Mina Estevez, Hint Fashion Magazine
"The teddy girls left school at 14 or 15, worked in factories or offices, and spent their free time buying or making their trademark clothes -- pencil skirts, rolled-up jeans, flat shoes, tailored jackets with velvet collars, coolie hats and long, elegant clutch bags. It was head-turning, fastidious dressing, taken from the fashion houses of the time, which had launched haute-couture clothing lines recalling the Edwardian era."
