R.I.P. Dorian Leigh

Image by Lillian Bassman

Dorian Leigh, one of Richard Avedon's main muses and 7 time Vogue cover girl in 1946, passed away at age 91. We should all tip our hats to one of fashion history's most poised, intelligent and graceful models. 

The Washington Post has a lovely article about Dorian here.

I should point out that the photograph is of model Dovima and not Dorian.
