Call it obsession, call it appreciation, call it whatever you want – I love fashion photography and I think that everything about an artistic, stylish, and beautiful photograph is fascinating. I especially appreciate vintage pictures because they take you back to an era in time and style that you may have never experienced and one that will never occur again, regardless of the cycle of trends. To capture so much meaning and inspiration in a still shot says a lot, and I could honestly browse through vintage photos for hours. They’re so fun and influential. I can’t get enough of the cat eye sunglasses in this first picture. The second picture actually comes from an amazing and new exhibition called “Stars en Dior” which views Christian Dior and his relationships with some of the most iconic stars of cinema. The exhibit opens tomorrow and ends September 23rd at the Christian Dior Museum in Granville, France.

If you don’t know who Richard Avedon is, then I suggest you quicken your pace and brush up on his biography because he’s a mainstay in the visual world and talented doesn’t even begin to describe the knack or eye that he has for artistic fashion photography. This August 1949 Helena Rubenstein’s Apartment depiction of a woman wearing a dress by Piguet from Avedon’s “Woman in the Mirror” is inspirational no matter how you slice it. Old Hollywood glam, eat your heart out.
