Richard Avedon Dovima with Elephants (1955)   Not a shocking construction for our times, but the jarring juxtaposition of Dior silk and leathery pachyderms was certainly creatively extraordinary for the ‘50s. It remains the most celebrated photo in fashion-photography history.

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.
