Absolutely Avedon

After reading that yesterday would’ve been Marilyn Monroe’s 85th birthday, I also learned that Bill Gold hired Richard Avedon, the late world reknown fashion photographer, to do the photography for one of her most famous movie posters, The Prince and The Showgirl.

On top of that, Avedon also designed the stylish opening title sequence for Stanley Donen’s Funny Face, starring Audrey Hepburn.
