How I created a 1940’s look for the Marine Ball

posted in: Beauty, Fashion, Looks | 0

The first week I arrived in Baku I attended my first social event: The Marine Ball at the Four Seasons Hotel. However, I still hadn’t received my belongs, so I didn’t have an evening dress available. I only had a bag with basic makeup and clothing articles.

I did not yet know the city in order to go shopping so my best option was to wear the Pleated Dress from Zara that I bought a month before in Manhattan. It was a simple dress, but I knew I could make something beautiful with it.

The most important factor to making a look is not necessarily the dress or its brand, but the knowledge and creativity to do it. This Zara dress inspired me to create a 1940’s look. Even being in a new city without most of my tools, I knew I could do it.

I always have admired actresses like Rita Hayworth and Veronica Lake. Creating a vintage look is a definite art form, and getting just the right look takes practice and time.

The last day of the Azerbaijan Fashion Week was fascinating thanks to Leyla Akhmedova's inventiveness. She transported the public to a fascinating place thanks to her creative and theatrical clothing full of exoticism and originality. She borrowed heavily from elements of the circus.
