La Vie en Rose

Irving Penn and Terry Richardson

In accordance with his passion for photographing still lifes and floral vanitas, Irving Penn photographed Shalom Harlow in a floral creation by milliner Philip Treacy and dress by Richard Tyler for Vogue in April 1, 1995. Terry Richardson’s 2012 September Harper’s Bazaar cover features Gwen Stefani topped similarly in an oversized floral hat by Alexis Mabille paired with a petal pink dress from Raf Simon’s last collection for Jil Sander.

    Irving Penns original image from 1995 contains its own mystery, with the model's head terminated in shade. An unforgettable shot.
