Coco Rocha, a cable knit cape, and an old-fashioned bicycle. Models in Balenciaga frocks playing croquet. Draping gowns in smoky bars. It’s the epitome of 40s glamour, and while we only yesterday mentioned Natasha Poly’s shoot for Vogue Paris as one of our favourites for September 2009, this one – though a complete contrast – also makes the list.

My favourite shot? This Ralph Lauren outfit from the designer’s Autumn(Fall)/Winter 2009/2010 collection was paired with Hermes riding boots for a 1940s masculine elegance that fits well into the female dandy trend of 2010.
