Avedon Fashion 1944-2000

Today marked the opening day at Palm Beach's Norton Museum of Art of the highly anticipated Avedon Fashion 1944-2000 retrospective. This is a definite must-see for all lovers of fashion and iconic imagery. Avedon revolutionized fashion photography in the post-World War II era with his spirited, imaginative images of the modern woman. The exhibit features more then 160 works created during Avedon's long career at Harper's Bazaar, Vogue, The New Yorker and beyond. Here's a small tease of what you can expect to see...

Dorian Leigh, hat by Paulette, Paris Studio, August 1949

Audrey Hepburn, New York, January 1967

Twiggy, hair by Ara Gallant, Paris Studio, January 1968

Malogosia Bela and Gisele Bundchen, dresses by Dior Couture, New York, March 2000

The exhibit runs until May 9, 2010
