Christian Dior's New Look, 1947. As a reaction to the rationing of World War II the new look, using many metres of fabric, came into fashion. It was a return to the classic feminine shape, emphasising the bust and hips, with a tiny waist. I love how glamorous this looks with the tiny jacket and voluminous skirt.

The more iconic or representative look would be: 1920s: a T-strap; 1940s: Open-toed platform chunky heels with an ankle strap, 1950s: a little pointed-toe early stiletto court shoe; 1990s: Dr. Martens Oxfords or boots, although those chunky sandals are pretty '90s, too. And, extremely high stilleto in 2000....
