Pinspiration: Timeless glam

Oh, the irony of Pinterest.  It inspires even when you have no creativity left in you, then leaves you with little to no time to act on that inspiration. :)

My eye was instantly drawn to these images of the Christian Dior Couture Spring/Summer 2012 show.  How stunning are these?  Not just the dresses and the models... but the setting, the vintage-inspired styling, the black and white photos...

My mind immediately goes to these (mostly familiar) images of a few timeless beauties and vintage couture.

Now, if only I could wear a ball gown to work....
