Sorry if there's already a thread for all of this, mods feel free to remove...
Anyhow, I imagine that I'm not the only one around here who loves all things vintage. I'm no fashion historian, but from what I understand, models in the past were generally curvier than they are now— but not all of them! I've come across some brilliant vintage thinspo lately that I'd love to share.

I'll start with the iconic Dovima (Dorothy Juba/Horan)
She's the model in this famous photo by Richard Avedon.

To me she just represents the height of 50's glamour, so tiny and so perfect.

I also think Jean Patchett was beautiful. That little mole of hers is perfect.

What a great idea for a topic! Vintage models were something so ethereal you really can't even compare them to the models of today! :bow:

Wow, these don't even feel like vintage photos at all! She's so modern looking, like she could be a model today. Absolutely beautiful, thanks!
She's timeless, and such an inspiration. She still looks good! It's a great counter to all those people who say you have to gain weight as you get older.

I love love love her look, especially in the second photo(s). I have seen photos of her before but never knew her name, so thanks for posting! I think she is cute, lovely, and edgy all at once. She is something special. And I like her freckles :).
