Richard Avedon Page 1
For the latest installment of “Vogue Stories”, Vogue‘s ongoing series in which industry insiders look back on their histories with the magazine, legendary model Lauren Hutton shares a tale of an especially memorable photo shoot with Richard Avedon.
Jean Shrimpton is often credited as the world’s first supermodel, even if she herself is rather unconcerned with the title. “I never liked being photographed. I just happened to be good at it,” she told The Guardian, in an interview last year at her current secluded home operating a hotel in Cornwall, England. But while the The Shrimp may be a reluctant legend, she is a legend nonetheless. So to celebrate her 70th birthday today, we’ve compiled 25 of her best shots throughout the years. Enjoy!
Some of Richard Avedon’s iconic work will be sold at auction this fall, so what better time for a mini-retrospective of his greatest fashion photography?
