I have been thinking lately  about beauty and what is extraordinaire. As I have mentioned before I am a huge Richard Avedon fan and I think he is one of the people able to caption beauty in the best possible way- straight forward, black and white with a bit of sparkle. The most beautiful women (above) seem so natural and wonderfully calm and real, through the lens of a genius.

So lately I have been thinking a lot about creativity and innovation, along with fashion and style. One of the names that pops constantly in my mind when I think of images and beauty is Richard Avedon.

He is one of my favourite photographers. There is so much precision and grace in his shots…

Two of the best portraits ever shot and two of the most beautiful women ever – Marilyn Monroe and Sophia Loren.
