Photos of live models dressed in vintage clothing is a tricky thing- that many a time I have seen done wrong, w-a-y wrong.
That being said, Maggie of DeniseBrain is someone who is spot on with her use of a live model, herself, in her photos. She is familiar with poses that are good for her face and her body, and she obviously knows her vintage fashion and photo poses. Her expressions and poses vary according to what type of outfit she is modeling... perky and happy for a 1950's print dress, vampy and film noirish for a 1940's style dress. Also, note her use of complimentary accessories...
