….that defined his style.

My favorite Jeanloup Sieff photo is the top one, taken in Palm Beach in 1964 for Harper’s Bazaar. I’ve often wondered: What does that beautiful woman think of that guy?

What do you think?

Sieff died in 2000, but his estate maintains a wonderful website in his name. Browse through all the gorgeous photos {here}.

  1. The beautiful woman is intrigued by the dashing man, yet guarded, as her instincts tell her he is a scoundrel. These photographs are beautiful. I just lost myself in the Jeanloup site for half an hour.

    P.S. I would feel honored if you would consider adding me to your blogroll, Tina!

  2. “You seem so cool and unaffected, but I can feel your heart beating”.
