Dovima was discovered on a sidewalk in New York by an editor at Vogue, and had a photo shoot with Irving Penn the following day. She worked closely with Richard Avedon, whose photograph of her in a floor-length black evening gown with circus elephants—"Dovima with the Elephants" - taken at the Cirque d'hiver, Paris, in August 1955, has become an icon. The gown was the first evening dress designed for Christian Dior by his new assistant, Yves Saint-Laurent.
While I was looking at shots from the Dior show I couldn't help but feel that I'd seen the look before but I just couldn't put my finger on it. Then it hit me. Dovima. "Dovima with Elephants" -Richard Avedon (1955) Dorothy Virginia Margaret Juba was discovered on the street in New York city in the early 50's and found herself facing Irving Penn's camera lens the very next day. She was most famously photographed in a full-length, black Dior gown in 1955 in Richard Avedon's icon shot "Dovima with Elephants." The dress was the first one a young Yves Saint Laurent would design for the legendary fashion house. See any similarities?
