A Man and His Muse(s)

Milton Greene and Steven Meisel

In a 1960 September Issue of Life Magazine, Milton Greene photographed designer Norman Norell proudly standing amongst his muses: models dressed in his signature sequined sheath gowns along with the Marchesa Luisa Casati, portrayed in Kees van Dongen’s 1921 painting, “The Quai, Venice.” Norell owned the portait of the eccentric Marchesa (the same Marchesa who inspired the label Marchesa by Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig) and designed his Fall 1960 collection in her honor. To celebrate Tom Ford’s return to womenswear design after his six year absence, Vogue offered its readers a preview of the designer’s Spring 2011 collection photographed by Steven Meisel. Meisel’s image features Mr. Ford positioned amongst his designs in a fashion similar to Greene’s portrait.
