Last Summer, I was a photographer for the Flashback Boutique fashion show in aid charity. Whilst there, I met a girl who shall now be known as 'Pomona Green.' She is every inch the Old Hollywood Star and it's hard not to imagine her playing alongside the stars of old and everyone agrees that she's a 'dead ringer' for Jane Russell. (Gentlemen prefer blondes, His Kind of Woman.)
With her high arched, thick 40's-esque eyebrows and porcelain skin, she is a vintage treasure, never seen without full makeup and perfected hair. She is the very definition of curvacious too, with a thin sloping waist and elegant thighs and arms. None of this super skinny, she's the perfect example to young women everywhere.

It's rare to find someone so beautiful who has a love for Vintage and Modelling who has such a sweet and loving personality. She's truly one of the loveliest people I've ever met. She's humble and modest and is always shocked when someone pays her a compliment. She's just doing what she loves, she's not doing it for the attention and I admire her for that.
Not only is she lovely, but she has a passion for Politics, enrolling in a University course at Liverpool to study Politics and Policy. She's passionate about life and love and is eager to make a difference in the world, proving she's not all beauty, but brains too.
I feel it's important to add in a little something about her Style Icon. It's NOT Dita Von Teese as most people will automatically assume. Dita is fantastic, yes, but the assumption is always that everyone into Burlesque/Vintage is a follower of Miss Von Teese. She didn't start this off you know... No, Pomona's Style Icon is her Mother. She was a Lingerie Model in her prime, boasting long black hair, a slender figure and beautiful red lips. ''Chanel Red'' as Pomona herself says... ''She was one classy bird back in the day.''
Keep your eyes peeled here for some information on her upcoming Burlesque show which will be occurring this Summer.
Pomona is a true style icon herself, with her hour glass figure and her awe inspiring beauty. She's a treasure and an inspiration to young women everywhere, to do what they want and not care what anyone thinks. She's living her dream at the moment and loving every minute of it. She proves that it pays to be nice and to be yourself at all costs, no matter how many people try to stand in your way, and how many people try to put you down. She picks herself up and carries on, pushing the doubters and the people who try to hurt her to the side.
She's the next big thing in Burlesque, so don't look away from this page, I shall be brining you regular updates about my beautiful friend Pomona Green and what she's been up to.
The pictures displayed in this post were taken by Darren Cheshire and Stevenio Cheshire, two fantastic photographers who managed to capture Lucinda's exceptional beauty and Old Hollywood Glamour. The majority were taken by Stevenio, who has been working with Pomona for some time now. As she said in her own words 'I owe him so much.' Here's some links to both of their websites.
