Cecil Beaton: 1904-1980. English photographer whose elegant and sophisticated fashion pictures and society portraits often employed exotic props and settings. He adopted a more simple style for his wartime photographs of bomb-damaged London. He also worked as a stage and film designer, notably for the musicals Gigi 1959 and My Fair Lady 1965. (Brockhampton)
What a fabulous era of style!
