100 Years of Fashion

I can't get over this video: 100 Years of Fashion, presented in 100 seconds through dance. 


It's actually a commercial for a new branch of the British shopping center, Westfield Stratford, but I think it's a work of art. The musical transitions, the clever choreography and of course, the costumes... advertising can be so great.

I'd also like to pretend that the dancers are married. Because they're super cute together.


A few of my favorites... oh how I love the gypsy lifestyle of the 70s and those 90s power suits...
