1920s fashion began modestly and quickly evolved to what we would consider, even today, as a bit sexy or scandalous. First came the feathers, shiny beads, cloches, showing of skin, lots of fur, no corset, flappers... and then celebrities began pushing fashion limits even further. It's the roaring 20's and it's fabulous fashion! You can almost tell what year each photo was taken based on how conservative the dress.
