About the artwork

Calling on the most famous artists of their era, Condé Nast and Vogue magazine assembled a corpus of photographs that made fashion history. This one was created in June 1948 by British artist Cecil Beaton (1904-1980). He joined the American edition of Vogue from the 1920s as an illustrator, before becoming one of their official photographers. From 1931, his work was regularly published in the British Vogue version with which he collaborated until the mid-1950s. He launched his artistic career by photographing his rich aristocratic friends, who were nicknamed “Bright Young People”. This image attests to his interest in costume balls and particularly the spectacular dresses by designer Charles James. It also testifies to a turning point in his artistic career, since Beaton later switched his focus to set and costume design for film and theatre. Copyright © 1948 Condé Nast. All rights reserved.
