This image spoke to me.... I love his smile!

Had an amaaaaazing time in NY with D @ this fantastic show. The early works through the 60s are certainly some of my favorites....when ladies were entirely elegant and men were so gentlemanly......

They have the original hand-cut artwork from Bazaar for this famous piece.
This could be Margiela today....
The show is up through Sept. 20th. Fridays from 5-8PM are voluntary contribution. Another art on the cheap experience. Otherwise its only $12. Wander about and be inspired by 2 full floors of Avedon and a fantastic bookstore! Also, see below if you are in NY & would like to attend a very inexpensive lecture.
