The Honey Sisters

I've always loved the image of the three ladies used on the Jergen's boxes and jars, and since my two dearest friends happen to be a brunette and a redhead, we thought it would be fun to recreate that scene.  Doug Monce of Atomic Age Pictures photographed us, and we were quite pleased with the end result!  

The original image graced the cover of Vogue in 1939, and served as Varga's inspiration for the Jergen's packaging (I wish Jergen's would 'update' their cold cream packaging to this design, wouldn't that be a treat to have on the vanity!)

  1. Wonderful! We don't have Jergen's in Australia (as far as I know) but I love the image! Now I just need to find a redhead and a blonde to recreate my own version... :p x

  2. What a strikingly beautiful ode to a marvelous vintage beauty magazine cover and beauty product packaging. I absolutely adore your photos!

  3. Beautiful! You all look marvelous and what a wonderful idea!

  4. The pictures are lovely. The three of you are much prettier than the original Vogue picture and just as lovely as the Jergen's pictures.

  5. Thank you for the sweet comments! We had a lot of fun with this shoot--we also posed for a series of Old Hollywood shots. I'll be posting those this week :-)

  6. I love this redo of the original...
