A Room with a View
Under the direction of Diana Vreeland at Vogue, German photographer Horst P. Horst began photographing high society within their living spaces throughout the 60s. Horst photographed fashion designer, writer and International Best Dressed Hall of Famer, Pauline de Rothschild, peeking into her whimsical Parisan bedroom on rue Méchain in the June 1, 1969 issue of Vogue. Perhaps paying homage to the Horst photograph, Steven Meisel photographed Linda Evangelista exuding an aristocratic flair and also caught in the doorway of a muraled interior. The image belonged to an editorial entitled “The Duchess” and ran in the June, 2008 issue of Vogue Italia.
