If you're a lover of all things elegant and vintage, we've got something in store for you that we're sure you'll love. We've got a real blast from the past in the form of vintage photos from the '40s and '50s by one of America's most iconic photographers who you've probably never heard of. Nina Leen was one of LIFE magazine's first female photographers and was celebrated back in the 1940s and 1950s for capturing contemporary American life the way it really was. However, Leen herself wasn't actually American, she was born in Russia, grew up in Europe and later emigrated to the States. Her photos of women were especially well-loved, and we have seventeen of them for you to take a look at!
