One Legend to Another

 

“I didn’t

bring you

to Paris

to do art.

 

I brought

you here

to do the

buttons

and the

bows.”

 

Carmel Snow, editor-in-chief, Harper’s Bazaar (1934-1958) reprimanding preeminent fashion photographer, Lillian Bassman

  1. Ouch to the comment. Amazing – to the photo. Very Audrey Hepburn-ish.

  2. have you ever noticed how the editors of high fashion mags are all lean and stylish and somewhat angular? they aren’t all pretty altho’ this one is. i’d love to have an elegant portrait of myself by which to be remembered.

  3. Great quote.
