The Impossible Missions Force, or IMF, is the epitomy of class, brains, and keeping it cool. They never get it wrong, except on the rarest occasion, and then the unknown only intensifies the action and their abilities.
Now I don't "worship" fictional characters, or any other for that matter, but I do have my favorites, as any ol' fan would.
Cinnamon Carter, the main female agent of the show until near the end of season 3 in 1969, is the essence of 60's fashion and aptitude. She handles every situation calmly and eloquently.
When I want a good example of retro makeup or hair I go straight to Cinnamon Carter.
They played with her looks here and there but for the most part her hair was short with the curls and body typical of the era. Her makeup was often made up of neutrals, unless the situation demanded otherwise, wide and defined eyeliner, flawless skin, and bright red lips. I've tried to copy her look on many occasion.
A fellow IMF member, Barney Collier, poses as her photographer. In most episodes, Barney and Willy both wear uniforms of a dozen different professions, but this was a time when Barney had a good look going for him.
I love his gold button-up and hunter green suit coat. You can't see it in these pictures, but he is also wearing medium grey slacks. By leaving off a tie and unbuttoning the collar, Barney's usual firm demeanor is softened.
Something I can't help repeating, people just don't dress with the pride they used to.
I'd love to hear you thoughts so leave me a comment below!
