A 1940’s coquette

Just look at the cool coquette on the left of this photo. Now that is attitude that cannot be faked, or bought. It’s in the rebellious man-style pants and saddle shoes; the pose with the leg up and cigarette in hand; the cheeky half-smile. It’s more charm than beauty and more composure than poise. It’s simply perfect.
