I Got A 1950s Makeover

268080 ratings | 6527854 views
So for our decades series last year we traveled back through time until the 1960s - so I decided to go back another decade and put together an entire look based on the fashion, hair and makeup trends of the 50s! What do you think of the finished look? A big thank you to Kayley Melissa and Gabriela Hernandez for helping us out with our midcentury makeover!

Hey Safiya :) my mother was born in the 50s and really into fashion all her life. She told me why the bras were shaped this way. These Bras are made to mimic the growing breasts of adolescent girls. if you recall thats what your "chesticles" looked like around 13-16. I would interpret into that that it is to represent youthfullness possiblity fertility playing into that whole being a young fertile mom kinda thing.. Also i have no idea why but your videos are incredibly entertaining to me. have a nice day!

Don’t know why I though of this.... Imagine your a mother in the 1950s and you have a point bra, okay? You have a child and he has his birthday party, you are holding cupcake and him and his friends run over to you for the cupcakes. One of his friends slip and BAM a child stabbed himself on your bra. Dangerous bastards. 😂

Hi, that was great fun. One rule that you missed: all accessories had to MATCH with a capital MATCH. The shoes, purse and belt needed to be the same color. The only exception would have been a "self-belt" in the same fabric as the dress (which was probably what your dress came with). White shoes could be pared with a straw purse (summer only), but if you had a leather purse it had to be white, to match the white shoes. Black shoes, black purse. Black patent-leather shoes, black patent-leather purse. It was all very, very matchy-matchy and that was that. No exceptions. Consequently, women who could afford it would simply "invest" in sets for future outfits: black leather, black patent-leather, white leather, white patent-leather, navy leather, dove gray leather, oxblood brown leather, etc. The texture of all leather accessories also had to match: matte leather, patent leather, or suede, all items had to match, as did any metal items. One didn't wear a silver belt buckle with gold earrings, or a coat with gold buttons with shoes with silver buckles. It became second nature to just make sure that everything matched. It sounds crazy now, but that's the way it was.
