The Simply Luxurious Life®: Mona Johannesson – Elle Sweden – August 2010

Mona Johannesson – Elle Sweden – August 2010

The retro allure of Mona Johannesson in August’s Elle Sweden is every bit the definition of ethereal. From the full skirts to the cashmere cardigans and classic undergarments styled by Lisa Lindqwister, photographer Jimmy Backius captures a glamorously idealized housewife. Between the upswept chignon, the string of pearls and knee high stockings, the enticement to return to days gone by is very inviting.

Oh ys I fell in love with these images too! Don't think a housewives life was that glamorous back in the day though. Fantasy is a very good thing :)

the look in the fifth picture is definitely my favorite: love the modern interpretation of a very feminine era in fashion.

Her beauty is striking...she almost reminds me a little of Penelope Cruz... This is how I should feel everyday - sultry, elegant and like a hot siren...well, back to reality!!Yikess
