Sweet Sixteen

From the November 1948 issue of US Vogue comes this lovely photo shoot with a sixteen-year-old Elizabeth Taylor. Here she demonstrates the current skirt and shirt fashion that the young love for its different-every-time-look. Elizabeth was just about to appear on screen as Amy in Little Women when these photos appeared but she was already famous around the world as Velvet Brown. I do love that plaid skirt and the framing in that first photograph. Lovely.

I love these glimpses of history. I love the smile on her face in the black and white photo!

She looks lovely, but if you compare her with girls who are sixteen today...well...maybe she seems a "little" bit more grownup... :)

I know. No way did I look that sophisticated when I was sixteen.
