Portraits by Cecil Beaton

June 17, 2010 § 2 Comments

‘Greta Garbo, Plaza Hotel, New York, April 1946′
1946

If I could live the life of one photographer, it would be Cecil Beaton: the era he lived in, the society circles he was able to document, the style he had and could manifest through his designs, the people he met and whose essence he captured; Beaton’s life must have been visually amazing. Of course, I love the costumes he designed from My Fair Lady too, so a later post on that.
