Do these ladies look a tad stiff? What you’re looking at is one of Swiss-Italian artist-photographer Christian Tagliavini‘s “cardboard ladies,” a series of portraits showing women’s fashion through the ages, made out of cardboard. From ruff-collared Elizabethan gowns to 1950s ensembles, Tagliavini’s portraits show the transient nature of fashion. Click through to Ecouterre to see all of the cardboard ladies.
