A New Kind of Love

The 1963 A New Kind of Love with Paul Newman and real-life wife Joanne Woodward is a beautiful movie. The City of Lights becomes the City of Love as the dreamy Steve Sherman (aka Paul Newman) finds himself falling for the ugly duckling turned swan, Sam (Joanne Woodward). Though there are cheesy parts, the movie is worth watching for the clothing alone.
For this vintage love story imagine the Eiffel Tower, romantic meals under the starry sky and fabulous fashion.

The perfect collection for dreaming about love in Paris is John Galliano's Spring 2008 Dior Couture Collection. His designs have clear connections to the 1960s from the line of the skirts, shape of the jackets and spirit of the women.

Lush fabrics. Dazzling details. Rich colors. Whimsical beauty.

Don't you just love the leopard printed furniture in the 1960s picture? It's beauty with an attitude that's not afraid to make a statement.

Full skirts were typical of 1960s eveningwear.

This dress seemed to be a perfect fit with the vintage postcard and chocolate covered delicacies.

  1. Never have I heard of this film before, but now I must see it. This is such a divine post - the pictures are equal parts elegant and eloquent. J'adore every bit of it. My favorite, of course, are the black and white pictures of the Eiffel Tower and that little cafe. It is my dream to drink coffee at a sidewalk cafe lined in cobblestones - blame the hopeless romantic in me. Gorgeous post, darling! :)

  2. What an absolutely gorgeous post my lady! I'm drooling over that postcard. Totally frame worthy!
