Now & Then: Eleanor Roosevelt

Monday, January 31, 2011

If Eleanor Roosevelt was still around, she'd be wearing Ralph Lauren's Spring 2010 Collection.
True fact: Eleanor Roosevelt and her husband Franklin Roosevelt were fifth cousins, once removed. Another interesting fact, Eleanor Roosevelt's uncle was President Theodore Roosevelt. I'm not sure if the first lady would wear pink, but I think this look from Ralph Lauren's Spring 2010 collection, which drew a lot of inspiration from the 1930's, is right on. I love the jacked and hat paired with the formal dress. If you'd like to see the rest of the "Now and Then Gang" go here.

  3. ER said: "You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing which you think you cannot do."

    i love her. and her hat.
