The woman with her back to us is a pin-up model called Vikki Dougan, also known as “The Back” because of her beautiful back and signature extremely-low backed dresses and sometimes exposed butt cleavage.

1950s an important sub-subculture of the Teddy Boys, an unlikely female element, has remained all but invisible from historical records. Meet The Teddy Girls. 2
You might have heard of the Teddy Boys, a 1950s rebel youth subculture in Britain characterized by an unlikely style of dress inspired by Edwardian dandies fused with American rock’n roll. They formed gangs from East London to North Kensington and became high profile rebels in the media. But an important sub-subculture of the Teddy Boys, an unlikely female element, has remained all but invisible from historical records. Meet The Teddy Girls.
Teddy Girls also known as Judies, alittle-known aspect of the more well-known Teddy Boys subculture, were working class Londoners who dressed in neo-Edwardian fashions. The Teddy Girls were the first British female youth subculture. The fashion style was partly inspired by the dandies in the Edwardian period after World War II. Teddy Girls as a group remain historically almost invisible, not many photos were taken, only one article was published in the 1950s about Teddy Girls.
Teddy Girls: A little-known aspect of the more well-known "Teddy Boy" movement, were working class Londoners, some of them Irish immigrants, who dressed in neo-Edwardian fashions. Save a lovely photoshoot by Ken Russell, they might have been forgotten entirely. The movement emerged in the late 1940s, as part of the emerging "youth culture" that rose from post-war Britain and America. This neo-Edwardian subculture represents one of the first youth cultures as we now know them.

British Teddy Girl, 1955 a British subculture typified by young men wearing clothes partly inspired by the styles worn by dandies in the Edwardian period, styles which Savile Row tailors had attempted to re-introduce in Britain after WW II. The subculture started in London in the 1950s, and rapidly spread across the UK, soon becoming strongly associated with American rock and roll. known as Cosh Boys, the name Teddy Boy was coined when a 1953 Daily Express headline shortened Edward to Teddy.

Girls do it better #teddygirl #1950s
14 year old Jean Rayner surrounded by young aspiring Teddy Boys on a bombsite, January 1955 Teddy Girls (Judies) The original Teddy Girls, like the Teddy Boys started in London. These were a group of feisty young women who were set on creating an identity of their own. Their choice of clothes wasn’t only for aesthetic effect: these girls were collectively rejecting post-war austerity. These were young working-class women, often from Irish immigrant families who had had settled in the poorer districts of London - Walthamstow, Poplar and North Kensington. They would typically leave school at 14 or 15, work in factories or offices.The Teddy girls would spent their free time buying or making their trademark clothes - pencil skirts, rolled-up jeans, flat shoes, tailored jackets with velvet collars, coolie hats and long, elegant clutch bags. It was head-turning, fastidious dressing, taken from the fashion houses of the time, which had launched haute-couture clothing lines recalling the Edwardian era. Soon the fashion had leapt across the class barrier, and young working-class men and women in London picked up the trend. The Teddy Girls didn’t care that their outfits shocked their families, as long as they were noticed among their peers. One of the original Teddy Girls famously photographed by Ken Russell in 1955, Rose Shine (then Rose Hendon) comments: “We got dressed up because it was always the Teddy Boys who got the look-in. We weren’t being noticed by them.” Rose, a 66-year-old grandmother in 2006 and proud to have been one of the first teddy girls states: “It was our fashion that we made up.” These young, working-class women were the first generation of their social stratum and gender to express their financial independence and fashion acumen in such a forthright style. The settings of many of Ken Russell’s 1955 pictures show the down-at-heel and often bomb-blasted neighbourhoods they hailed from, and serve as a fascinating counterpoint to the Teddy Girls gusty grace and sartorial inventiveness.
