Avedon, such a great photographer/ portraitist, even if here he’s taking a picture of Audrey in a silly hat that doesn’t suit her!
Now, I ask you, Mr. Kaplan – who is looking at the hat?
Ha! True, Ms Lester, I must’ve been a stylist in another life! “Now, Audrey, you look stunning in anything but perhaps even you should reconsider wearing a marshmallow on your head?” 😉 I still love you, Ms Hepburn!
Do you know the story about when Richard Avedon was photographing Elizabeth Taylor on the beach at Big Sur during the filming of “The Sandpiper”? She got him to giver her something that he had that she thought was beautiful…. can you guess what it was?
Sorry to butt in Mr Smith but I have been wracking my “brain” for the answer and keep coming up blank! I am almost sure I knew this yet no joy… So, what *was* it? An item of clothing, a pet?! Do tell!
How could I have not seen this until today??? Please, Sir Lanier! What was it?
okay you two I will end the suspense. It was his cable knit sweeter. he was photographing her for the cover of Life Magazine. She loved his sweeter and told him so. Before he knew what he was doing he was giving it to her. Isn’t that charming?
(Oh George you are not butting in…charmed to meet you sir!)
That IS charming! Hey Mister, tomorrow I get back to actually writing posts and not just putting up pictures 😉
Well then Missy I have to keep an eye on you! I have missed you of late.
I will write you a proper email tomorrow. xox, V
Sweeter? OY Sweater! I need an editor!
Thank you, Master Lanier! A-ha, a cable knit sweater… That is, indeed, a charming tale. Splendid Mr Avedon!
Avedon + Audrey = Absolutely Heavenly.
