Here are 3 of Games’ incredible posters promoting the ATS - all thought to be problematic - the first for being too glamorous, the second too ‘Russianised’ and the third too much of an ‘English Rose’ ...

Her shadow alone is beautiful - but we also see #auroragreeley herself - perfectly lit below a hat shaped to create a delicate proscenium around her face. Her eyebrows and eyelashes appear painted onto the photograph’s surface, she is theatrical even when calm and still.

#busbyberkeley’s kaleidoscopic visions of carefully arranged chorus girls reimagined for the 1990s with one model multiplied to create many. Her sleek silhouette - topped by a beautiful circular #philiptreacy - adds to the sense of 1930s style reborn. Dressed in an updated version of #lesmoking she also recalls #fredastaire’s elegance.

She stands just so, posing to display the delectable charms of this black dance dress. The swaying hem of its box-pleated skirt and the pleasing drapery of its neckline are in harmony with  the curving line of columns that march behind her.

Crystal glitters to match blue eyes, and devoré velvet glows in deepest amethyst. #guinerverevanseenus pauses for the camera #backstage at #donnakaran’s 1996 #fashionshow. Behind her, the decadent spell created by her presence is broken as we see the raw background and organised chaos that goes into the show’s creation.

She is rendered in soft powdery pastels, her skin pink-white, her dress palest chiffon and blue. Behind her, the room is dark and shadowy, dominated by a large glass vase - its fragility a comment on her delicately made femininity.

What we see - warm tones highlighted with coral, a neat suit, the suggestion of a gallery setting. 
What lies beneath - special fabrics that create and maintain this deliberate silhouette - a crease-resistant linen/cotton mix, and a lining made from material designed to maintain its shape.

A dress so ruffled, so primed for movement that all you can do is take off your shoes and dance.

Two versions of turn of the century fashion. In the early 1900s two styles evolved for women - both of which had been brewing for awhile. A demure and decorative dress that would continue to blossom with its focus on elaborate bodices and trailing skirts. Alternatively, the more masculine-inspired white blouse and plain A line skirt that signalled women’s gradual push towards emancipation.

Bright tailoring against blue skies for #ebonymagazine in 1965. Lightweight suits are given feminine approval by the inclusion of a pink-clad female model, who walks behind her male peers.
