Dovima The quintessential swan was a Queens housewife until she was discovered outside a Manhattan Automat. Described by Avedon as the "last of the great elegant, aristocratic beauties," she created the perfect fashion storm when she posed with elephants for him at the Cirque d'Hiver in Paris in 1955. The resulting images have long been among the world's best-loved fashion photographs.
elephant parade! elephants are such wonderful, amazing creatures...it is a crime against humanity and the animals for how they are treated in their native lands...do some reading surrounding the issue. it's tragic all around. :(
