Back in 2002, Norman Rockwell’s Rosie the Riveter painting was auctioned by Sotheby’s for nearly $5 million.And now some top class tutorials to get the Rosie look, starting with the amazing Lisa FreemontStreet

1940s fashion was hugely influenced by World War Two. So much so that no one can discuss this decade’s fashion without talking about the war. Women cut many corners to stay glamorous, and as many women took over the men’s jobs, fashion changed to accommodate.
Women’s trousers became the norm. Hair was tied up and turbans were all the rage. Even if a girl worked up to her glossed fingernails in grease and dirt, it didn’t stop her looking fabulous!
