The doors to the world of the wild Self are few but precious. If you have a deep scar, that is a door, if you have an old, old story, that is a door. If you love the sky and the water so much you almost cannot bear it, that is a door. If you yearn for a deeper life, a full life, a sane life, that is a door • Clarissa Pinkola Estés • Photo: Ralph Gibson, 1970

"Carmen Dell'Orefice (1931) is gliding effortlessly in mid air as she steps off a curb into a Paris street. Avedon was inspired by the Hungarian-born Martin Munkacsi (1896-1963), a former sports photographer who revolutionized the static world of fashion photography by injecting it with movement". by genevaanderson.wordpress.com

By the way, Mary Flower: I travelled with your mum this morning, I hadn't seen her in ages! She actually resembled someone totally cool and stylish like the lady in the photo! Mmmm... como ser chick en la estación de tren en la mañana cuando apenas estás despierta, hay un mundo de gente en el andén y tenés que estar preocupándote si tenés o no la cartera, la campera y tu MP3?? IMPOSIBLE!! Por eso me encanta esta foto... Utopía total... Ustedes qué piensan?? Están así de divas a la mañana?? De paso, Mary Flower: hoy viajé con tu mamá. Hace mil que no la veía! La verdad que estaba tan diva como la mujer de la foto! Photo credits: Passing in Victoria Station, London (1951), from Double Takes, via A Cup of Jo.
Credited by many as the first supermodel, even though she was never called that in her lifetime, Lisa Fonssagrives was the first widely known fashion model. Born Lisa Birgitta Bernstone in 1911 in Uddevalla, Sweden, she took up painting, sculpting and dancing as a child. She went on to Mary Wigman's school in Berlin where she studied art and dance. After returning to Sweden, she opened a dance school. She moved from Sweden to Paris to train for ballet. While in Paris in 1936, photographer Willy Maywald discovered her in an elevator and asked her to model hats for him. Fonssagrives' photographs were then sent to Vogue and Vogue photographer, Horst P. Horst took some test photographs of her, which were to launch her stellar fashion career. She was to describe her modelling as "still dancing". Before Fonssagrives came to the United States in 1939, she was already a top model. Her elegant blonde image appeared on the cover of many magazines during the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s, including Town & Country, Life, Time, Vogue, and the original Vanity Fair. She epitomized a very noble period of fashion and couture, giving a classical dignity to anything she wore. She was reported as "the highest paid, highest praised, high fashion model in the business". Fonssagrives once described herself as a "good clothes hanger". She worked with many famous fashion photographers including Georges Hoyningen-Huene, Man Ray, Horst, Erwin Blumenfeld, George Platt Lynes, Richard Avedon, and Edgar de Evia. Unusually, she continued to be a fashion model when she was past 40. She married Parisian dancer and photographer, Fernand Fonssagrives, in 1935; they divorced and she later married another leading photographer, Irving Penn, in 1950. She was a frequent subject of Penn's photographs for Vogue magazine, particularly his studies of French haute couture. Together, the Penns represented an extraordinary photographer - model team. In the 1960s, Fonssagrives became a sculptor working in marble, bronze and fiberglass. She died in 1992, aged 80, in New York, leaving behind a stunning legacy of art and photographs.

Toni Frissell, (1907 -1988) was an American photographer, known for her fashion photography, World War II photographs, portraits of famous Americans and Europeans, children, and women from all walks of life. In the beginning of her career, she was an apprentice to Cecil Beaton and was advised by Edward Steichen. Conde Nast himself was instrumental in her start at Vogue. Frissell was one of Vogue's first female photographers. As her career evolved, Frissell was commissioned by several corporations, such as Gulf Oil and Life. Frissell stretched the boundaries of the privileged world into which she was born and became one of the most innovative photographers of her time. She conceived the fashion photograph as a snapshot, in the manner of Munkacsi, and brought a freshness and particularly American style to the genre. Her battle front photojournalism captured some of the most unforgettably compelling images of World War II. Lisa Fonssagrives was a Swedish fashion model widely credited as the first supermodel. Michael Todd (June 22, 1909 - March 22, 1958) was an American theatre and film producer, best known for his 1956 production of Around the World in Eighty Days, which won an Academy Award for Best Picture. He is also well known as the third of Elizabeth Taylor's seven husbands. Jacqueline Bouvier on her wedding day John F.

Sharbat Gula is an Afghan woman who was the subject of a famous photograph by journalist Steve McCurry. Gula was living as a refugee in Pakistan during the time of the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan when she was photographed. The image brought her recognition when it was featured on the cover of the June 1985 issue of National Geographic Magazine
Steve McCurry :: Eloquence of the Eye / afghan girl Sharbat Gula, Nasir Bagh Refugee Camp in Peshawar, Pakistan
Peshawar, Pakistan I remember seeing this photo of Sharbat Gula; Steve McCurry's "Afghan Girl" when I was a younger at a kabob restaurant. This is one of my favorite photo's. The look on her face just takes me back and reminds me of my roots and where my parents came from.
Afghan Girl, December 1984, Steve McCurry: This photograph shows a your Afghan girl looking into the camera- it is very famous and recognizable, having graced the cover of National Geographic in 1985. I think that by taking this photo, McCurry wanted to show the humanity in a people that are often viewed simply as hostile. In today's day and age, there is a huge stigma surrounding people from the Middle East, but this girl doesn't look intimidating, she looks human, just like the rest of us.

I don't own any tulle skirts, but I'm not opposed to the idea and while one would be hard-pressed to find a "ballet" inspired look in my wardrobe, I like many other girls have a soft spot for ballet. I danced as a child, but was only in pointe shoes for a year before quitting, but seeing the Nutcracker or another ballet was nearly an annual tradition with my family. While I might be quite removed from the ballet scene, it's still a point of inspiration the same way vintage movies and magazines are. Who can resist the dreamy visuals? Anyway, all that to say that today's style inspiration is Anna Pavlova. She was a Russian prima ballerina in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. While she danced with the infamous Ballet Russes under Sergei Diaghilev, she is best remembered for her creation of The Dying Swan with her own company. Some footage remains of her dancing and her imagery and choreography is quite haunting, but perhaps what modern fans admire so much in Pavolva is the fairytale-like aspect of her own life. She was inspired to dance after viewing a ballet with her mother as a child, but her body type of highly arched feet, long limbs, and slimmer frame wasn't the ideal ballet body of the day. Her first application to the Imperial Ballet School was declined and when she was accepted her fellow classmates taunted her with cruel nicknames. Still, she practiced hard and learned to focus on her unique assets and even invented the modern pointe shoes to support her curved feet. And so it was the same young girl who was called "the little savage" by her classmates who later had her own legion of fans calling themselves "the Pavlovatzi." It's the sort of inspiring story we all like to hear--a daughter of a laundress who despite not having the ideal body for a very physical career managed to rise to fame and is remembered as one of the finest classical ballet dancers to have lived. It's a story we love to hear, that with hard work and focusing on what makes us different we can also find success when we follow our dreams.
