I found this late 50's magazine last week-end and want to share it with you my dear readers.

LAURA was a "shop for cute brides" in Paris and this book comes from there. I'm not a big fan of the late 50's fashion but as all women seing beautiful wedding dresses is always a great pleasure!!!

This magazine was given to me for FREE, that's the "plus" when you visit flea markets while wearing vintage....

There are beautiful brides pictures but also some nice drawings.

I don't know the exact date of this magazine but I think it must be 1958 or 1959.

The dress I love the most is the dress above, look at this feathers!

There are also a lot of cute headpieces shown.

I really don't like this too 60's hairstyle....

You can also see a lot of vintage ads for all what the bride will need.

There are so many styles some classics like in the early 50's and some more 60's like this short one.

This gown is really interesting with 2 lenghts for the skirt.

Those 2 ones above don't really fit for my taste....

The 2 styles above are really too 60's for me....

Love this picture, the headpiece is gorgeous!

Short wedding gowns were still fashionnable in the late 50's ....

This picture makes me think to Catherine DENEUVE in the french movie "Peau d'Ane": a princess from a fairy tail....

I wish I could draw like this....

This dress is a bit strange like a big... cream cake!!!!

There were a lot of gowns full made in Chantilly lace, it's not so fashionable nowadays.

There are no bridemaid like in the USA in french weddings. Only young kids can wear cute clothes in order to help the bride.

The last pages show some clothes for the familly....

What year do you think this magazine dates back?
Which gown would you choose for your own wedding?
