    One of my absolute favourite pieces of Fashion photography. Dovima and the Elephants. In this particular photo she is wearing Dior haute couture designed by Dior's new assistant Yves St Laurent

    The above picture,”Dovima with the Elephants” was taken by Richard Avedon at the Cirque d’hiver, Paris, in August 1955. This is the photo of Dovima, for whom the term ‘supermodel’ was coined. She was the most remarkable and unconventional beauty of her time. This image became one of the most iconic fashion photographs of the 20th century. The dress was the first evening dress designed for Christian Dior by his new assistant, Yves Saint-Laurent.

Andy Warhol by Richard Avedon   (via) After Warhol was shot in 1968 he became more cautious. He stopped taking amphetamines and began eating garlic. “Instead of transsexuals and speed freaks” he was now accompanied by people such as Liza Minnelli and Bianca Jagger. And “instead of the Factory, he partied at Studio 54.” [i]
