20th century icons

For one of my modules at uni (20th Century Fashion) I recently had to write an essay comparing two decades or eras within the 20th century. I chose to look at the differing eras following the two world wars and the fashion icons within those eras.
I particularly focused on Chanel for the 20s and Dior for the mid 40s to 50s. But also looked at other style icons.
Here are a few of the pictures I came across in my research and then used in my report...
