Paramount Photoshoot: Vintage Hollywood Glamour

Posted on November 2, 2011 by


The flirtatious Marilyn Monroe, the all-dolled-up Betty Paige, the sophistication of Elizabeth Taylor, the style of Grace Kelly, the poise of Veronica Lake – each Hollywood icon with her own signature look, each time she stepped into the spotlight.

In honor of The Virginia Film Festival, Cville Niche relived the timeless beauty of classic Hollywood icons. Local models and stylists revive and commemorate the 1940s, 50s and 60s as an ethereal world of vintage glamour.
