Behold a glamorous woman. She wears opera gloves to dinner. Hats just because. She has her suits custom made. She uses a muff. She is a Lady in Waiting in the 1950s, and she’s showcased in Elle next month. In fishtail skirts by Zac Posen and Donna Karan, suits by Oscar de la Renta and Armani styled by Christopher Niquet, Susie Bird is captured stunningly by photographer Thomas Whiteside. It’s a glimmer of hope that women can once again be utterly perfectly tailored in outfits akin to yore, yet still reign in our feminist ways.
