Tiered Evening Dress, March 1951 by Norman Parkinson

Tiered Evening Dress, March 1951, Norman Parkinson

Known for his wonderful contribution to the fashion industry, photographer Norman Parkinson was renowned for his Vogue front cover shots. This stunning image was captured in March, 1951, showing a beautiful tiered evening dress being worn by an elegant model with a bunch of flowers placed on her lap. Scattered with extravagant jewellery and her hair neatly curled and swept back, this perfect picture oozes class and sophistication.

There’s little that is more elegant than a black and white photograph, and this classic from 1951 by photographer Norman Parkinson is truly a masterpiece of fashion photography. The body language is rich, the greys luminescent and the model exquisitely poised. This is the sort of photograph that can be aspired to, and modern photographers could learn a lot from it on the subject of sticking to the essentials. —S
