Old School Cool


Wow, if I could have lived in a different age, I would have chosen this golden era. When movie stars were movie stars, women were ladies and men were gents. I love it! The celebrities of today are very different to the glamour and charm of what once was.

This is a stunning collection of photography showcasing timeless style and elegance. I received these in an email so I’m not sure who compiled this or who took these photos but I take my hat off to you, sirs or madams, as I felt inspired to share. If you see something here that’s your original photography (or someone you know), please send me a message and I will credit you where relevant.
