babe alert: STREET STYLE BEFORE STREET STYLE

For those of us who enjoy photos of iconic babes being stylish, street style before street style is quite a good series by Oyster, in which lovely ladies from decades past (namely, the seventies) are featured being generally glamorous and oh so beautiful. Its interesting to think how quickly weve gotten used to street style as a thing. These days, shots of celebs and unknowns alike are all over the internet to the point that (with some exceptions) you almost dont care about any of it. But looking at this series, you get the impression that, back in the seventies, it took a little something special in order to earn the attention of the paparazzi--just ask the likes of Fran├žoise Hardy, Bianca Jagger, and especially Jane Birkin (my fav of all time).



See what I mean?
