I've always been fascinated by the belle époque (in english "the beautiful era") concerned to be the "golden age" in Europe(1890-1914). Long, beautiful, feminine haute couture dresses, cute accessories,elegant gentlemen, phaetons, Paris, Moulin Rouge, Maxim's… Are you already there?
Yesterday I watched the new movie with Rachel McAdams and Owen Wilson -"Midnight in Paris". If you love Paris nowadays, Paris in the past, Paris in the rain, just like me, I recommend you to watch the movie!! The movie is not about the belle époque in Paris or maybe just 10 minutes of it are about this golden ages (watch the movie and you will understand what I'm talking about :D).So, this movie readjusted me to my love of the ancient Paris and everything connected with it and mostly the fashion! When I see a designer collection inspired by the belle époque I always fall for it! So, today I wanted to show you some of my favorite photos of the adorable fashion and la belle époque.
As I think it would be unprofessional to copy and paste, I give you the link of a website about the belle époque and the fashion history. Read it if you're interested :) --> http://www.fashion-era.com/la_belle_epoque_1890-1914_fashion.htm
