Vintage circus girls.
A friend showed me these amazing photos of vintage circus performers. I just had to share.
They were shot at travelling camps in the ’40s and ’50s, they’re absolute eye candy for any fan of vintage glamour and girl power. A lovely aerialist flashes a daring smile from a curved headstand on the grass another showgirl's striding between the trailers in red feathered wings a cheerful brunette dressed down to jeans and a crop top, carrying buckets, all these girls sparkle with something so enviably fresh, free-spirited and charming.
The costumes have all the razzle dazzle of the showgirl with a mix of the Hollywood starlet. So different to the modern lycra heavy garments. Ooo we might just run off to the circus!
