Lillian Bassman with love

Now on February 13, we lost Lillian Bassman at age 94. Lillian Bassman who became one of the greatest woman photographers in the world of fashion. From around the 1940s until the 1960s Bassman worked mostly for Harpers Bazaar.

The most notable qualities about her photographic work are the high contrasts between light and dark, the graininess of the finished photos, the geometric placement and camera angles of the subjects.

Lots and lots of lovely Hair

Dedicated followers of fashion - with shoes from Prada. A balancing act indeed

I've just bought new shoes. Feeling fabulous a bit like this. It worked so well when I walked around in the store - then out in the real cold world I'm all of a sudden like a new born Bambi. This is from an editorial in Singapore L'officiel, called "A balancing act".  It's really funny. We hope these girls are insured when they go to work.

Advanced style at its best!

This not only leaves me wanting more. It makes me so happy it almost hurts. This is why I love fashion!! It makes me remember and miss all that was great about my grandmother and her love for dressing up. These women are amazing and this movie says it all!

Big thanks to Ari Seth Cohen and his absolutely fantastic blog Advanced style
