About Kimberly @ Blue Ribbon Design

I’m not a huge fan of musicals, however I love Cecil Beaton, and his costume and set designs for the “Ascot Gavotte” scene from My Fair Lady are simply stunning. Even though his designs date from the 60’s, the combination of black, white and gray patterns still feels glamorous and fresh.

The designs and feeling don’t feel dated at all - very elegant, very timeless. And the hats!
