The evolution of beauty

“The ideal of beauty then was the opposite of what it is now. It stood for an extension of the aristocratic view of women as ideals, of women as dreams, of women as almost surreal objects.” -- fashion photographer Richard Avedon on supermodel Dovima.

Totally having a Dovima moment. They don't make 'em like they used to.


  1. She's a beauty! I sound uber ignorant and had to google her because I have never seen or heard of her before. Her look reminds me of the late, stunning Ms. Elizabeth Taylor.

  2. I wish woman would strive towards this ideal of beauty.
