Simply classic, stunning and downright beautiful illustrations by Robert Best.
Love his techniques and skill. So impressed! The way the hair appear soft, romantic, make-up done perfect and how shades and tones give such strong suggestion on fabric type is really something. By far the best watercolour illustrations of fashionable girls I've ever seen.
Compare the last illustration to the very first Barbie ever made! Though I suspect the Barbie below might have been remade as the real vintage one made in 1959 had really pale and porcelain looking skin.
