oscar's girl

i am just so in love with the vintage-y look of oscar de la renta's ad campaign for his new perfume:

from the press release: 

"de la renta decided to go back to an era of much more style and glamour — the fifties, sixties and seventies — when advertising came out of an artist’s pen and brush.  the live in love ad is a high fashion illustration done by british artist david downton."

it's so very mad men without really trying to be.  so after looking through mr. downton's portfolio, i realized his work includes some of my absolute favorite fashion illustrations.  if you are not yet acquainted, allow me to begin the introductions:
