The Bettina Blouse

This is Bettina, the fashion model and muse for Givenchy back in the 1950's.

Isn't she absolutely STUNNING?

Givenchy named the ruffled white shirt below "The Bettina Blouse" after the thin-waisted bombshell in his 1952 collection. I kinda fell in love with it the first time I saw it in one of my vintage fashion books. Love that high neck, the button-up fitted sleeve cuffs, and the four tiers of ruffles most of all.

I would love to have a blouse (or any article of clothing for that matter) named after me, wouldn't you?

Stay tuned, the Wednesday Wishlist is coming soon, and it just may be inspired by this post. ;)
