One of the most unlikeliest pin ups girls of the 1950's has to be Lucille Ball. An actress, model and comedienne who was well known for her sharp tongue and even sharper wit. So much so that she even had her own TV Show: 'I Love Lucy' which ran for most of the 1950's. A bit hit at the time, it is still as popular as ever with 'I Love Lucy' conventions happening all over the world. The world couldn't get enough of Lucille's wisecracks! But what her fans also loved was her style. If you are ever lucky to catch a snippet of the show online or even on television you will see that 1950's housewife style in its most purest form!
Think long three quarter length skirts, floral fitted blouses tucked into a high waisted skirt-bright polka dots, pretty gingham prints, bold black and white nautical stripes along with bright red lips and a pretty patterned head scarf tied in a turban like style. Everything about this look is vibrant and active! With all these elements in common with Rockabilly no wonder it's just as hot!
