I’m sure this has been posted a gazillion times before, but I don’t really care.

Beautiful, quintessential model Dovima (wearing a Christian Dior gown designed by a very young Yves Saint Laurent) in her most famous photograph, taken by glorious Richard Avedon…I can imagine a whole story behind this image. Dated 1955.
