The Mid Century Fashion of Laura Petrie

When I think of fashionable TV icons Mary Tyler Moore on The Dick Van Dyke show always pops first into my mind. In the show, which ran from 1961 -1966, Mary plays Dick's onscreen wife, Laura Petrie, and her wardrobe perfectly exemplifies the transition of the matriarch, always primed and proper 50's housewife to a hip, fresh and younger version of the 60's American wife. Laura Petrie's wardrobe was an array of beautiful, now classic mid century fashion and often more mod than anything else seen at TV at the time. Her ensemble's could easily transition into today's modern times without looking matronly, outdated or in any way stuffy.

Emma Appleton for Agent Provocateur

What could be said about model Emma Appleton? The UK model first caught Ahoy hoy's eye a couple years ago modeling a Fred Perry dress and rocking a black mod bob haircut - the (un) official Ahoy hoy uniform.

You could only imagine that more than our eyes were caught when these photos of the lovely model wearing very little else but Agent Provocateur resurfaced. A very, mod looking pin up indeed!
