dovima & cate

Richard Avedon's Dovima with the Elephants is one of my favourite fashion images of all time, and I love how it has been reinterpreted with Cate Blanchett for the March issue of Harpers Bazaar UK. Dovima is wearing 1955 Dior- I don't know who created Cate's gown but it is making me hyperventilate. So beautiful.

That is beautiful. Bazaar UK is a thousand times better than US Bazaar.

gorgeous photography....i just hope it doesn't inspire some of the more yahoo-ish readers of Bazaar to start hunting ivory.
