Eye Candy


My girl is like candy, a candy treat, she knocks me high up off my feet…

Twiggy&Richard

I’m a kid in a bonbon store when it comes to fashion photography, and it doesn’t get much sweeter than the iconic photos of Richard Avedon.  He had a gift for capturing sheer joie de vivre in his shots, like this cheerfully chic one above with Twiggy.

He knew how to play up the playful side of stunning silverscreen darling, Audrey

He captured the jazzy style of dapper Hollywood  hotshots (quite impressive, considering the two weren’t exactly pals)…

And showcased the star quality of so many other sensational subjects.

Avedon's Stars

And then there’s this photo of Veruschka Love, love, love. It always makes me smile! Artistic Avedon was uber-energetic himself, so it’s no surprise that he shot his models in motion: dancing, smiling, laughing and leaping.

He knew that fashion should be fun, andVeruschka is having a ball in this shot! It doesn’t hurt that she’s party-ready in glam gold ballet flats and a posh Bill Blass frock.

No wonder she’s over the moon!
