the most beautiful picture ever

.: dovima with elephants - richard avedon, august 1955 :.

probably 2 steps too late. this famous photo of model dovima and the elephants holds more history than meets the eye. this is the first dress yves saint laurent designed at dior that went through the workrooms without being altered by christian dior. it was the success of that dress that led dior to say, "you are my dauphin."

a tribute to 3 fashion heroes. saint laurent, dior and avedon.
