Memory Like an Elephant

Richard Avedon and Norman Jean Roy

Richard Avedon helped to define the post WWII woman with his imagery of impossibly elegant women, theatrically posed within Avedon’s signature theatric narrative style. Dovima with Elephants is one of Avedon’s most well-known photographs featuring the model Dovima dressed in Dior at the Cirque d’Hiver of 1955 in Paris. To celebrate the relaunch of Harper’s Bazaar UK, previously Harper’s and Queen since 1970, in March of 2006, Norman Jean Roy photographed actress Cate Blanchett in a black Vivienne Westwood bodice and skirt ensemble similarly positioned amongst elephants, perhaps an homage to Avedon’s rich history at Harper’s Bazaar.
