I need a "pretty" bike for photoshoots

I am looking for a bike that I will use as a prop for photoshoots. I think what I'm looking for is a steel frame (thin tubes), understated decals, and some chrome. While I think I am looking for a classic or vintage bike, I'm open to suggestions from any style or year of manufacture.

So, what do you suggest I look for? I have attached a link of a quick experiment I did with a friend's bike.

The only other trick is that I want to actually use this bike. I would be the likely rider, but my wife could also use it. I'm 6'0" and my wife is 5'8". The women I photograph are 5'9"-5'11", but they won't be riding the bike.

P.S. If anyone lives in Metro Detroit or along 30A in Florida, I would love to borrow a bike for an hour. I'm more than happy to provide an 8x10 and a cold beverage if your bike has the right look.
