I love mid-20th century illustration whether it's the quirky, colourful, modernist drawings of Eric Carle or the feminine lines of a 50s Vogue cover, they capture a very evocative period in design and fashion.

There is an exhibition on at the moment that I would love to see at Somerset House in London featuring the work of Rene Gruau. An illustrator for Christian Dior Gruau created iconic, beautiful images that reflected the spirit of Dior in such a wonderful time.

I can't help but think of Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly - all poise and elegance - when I see these images and feel a little bit sad that we've lost that sense of style. The exhibition runs until the 9th of January in case you fancy popping along.
