Getting Clear On The 1950s

Is this Sonia Rykiel Pre-Fall ’14 look a scene from Her? I don’t know if you noticed, but that movie with my boyfriend, Joaquin Phoenix, and Scarlett Johanson (as Siri), was supposed to take place in the future and actually took place in 1958. I saw it with my dad on Christmas and we were both very drunk but I asked him after what he thought of the movie being set in the ‘50s and he just laughed.

I mean I guess there were computers in it and it was kind of sci-fi-ish, but judging by Joaquin’s pants and glasses and hair and life; the future is the past. Get into these inspo moments:


Going full Joseph Stalin.


Here the 50s screams washed out, pale, and possessed.


Leaning on cars in shorts was a trend that started in the 1950s.

And this. THIS THIS THIS. I’ve thrown this in for good measure. I sometimes refer to this video as the beacon of chic.
