theclassyissue: James Dean & Liv Tyler Times Square. revision: I photo-shopped this the other day after noticing the James dean and Liv Tyler pictures. obviously Liv Tyler’s picture was a homage to James deans, and I thought it would be apt to try and mix the two and Yeah it works.

Example 3: Leather jackets became very popular in the greaser fashion of the 1950s that was influenced by James Dean. While this rebellious style mostly included teenage boys in the 1950s, leather jackets are now worn by both men and women. The style of the leather jacket has not changed much since the 1950s and it still resembles biker fashion.
Lets be honest I only pinned this for this Pier Angeli quote about Jimmy..."He wanted me to love him unconditionally, but Jimmy was not able to love someone else in return … it was the troubled boy that wanted to be loved very badly. I loved Jimmy as I have loved no one else in my life, but I could not give him the enormous amount that he needed. Loving Jimmy was something that could empty a person". PierAngeli Xoxo F
Many of the styles of the 1950s were influenced by the fashion of celebrities.This included Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley, James Dean, Sandra Dee, George Reeves, Pat Boone and Bridgette Bardot. A number of men wore twill trousers, open-neck shirts and white buck shoes similar to those of Pat Boone or loose, longer, colorful jackets with no ties similar to Elvis. Many younger and older women dressed in flared skirts similar to Sandra Dee or capris and scarves similar to Annette Funicello.
