||Welsh songstress Charlotte Church favours Fifties styles that flatter her curvaceous figure. Arriving to be named solo artist of the year at a recent awards ceremony, the 20-year-old chanteuse accessorised her calf-length Hawaiian print dress with hoop earrings and bright yellow peep-toe shoes. Overall the effect was very Doris Day.
And British actress Kelly Brook also finds that the silhouettes of the post-war decade, when women could once again revel in fuller skirts, favour her hourglass shape. Launching her beachwear range in Oxford Street, the Rochester-born beauty looked an all-American sweetheart in a cleverly tailored summer frock with a keyhole feature and the ubiquitous peep-toe sandals.
