A very famous image
Of a very famous designer
Taken by a very famous photographer.


Hints: she was born in Florence, she studied Interior design in Rome, she moved to New York where she became famous creating objects of desire for a famous luxury brand with a famous color packaging.

Who is she? Come on... I told you that she is very famous!

Nice photo
but who is she?

I have no idea who she is, but I wish I had her body!! :-)

The only name I can think of is Coco Chanel, but she's French so this obviously isn't her.

I hope you'll give us the answer soon!!

My first instinct is to say Diane Von Furstenburg--but I do not think that she was born in Italy?? And do not think that she worked at Tiffany's (HELP???) Those are some legs.

O.K. we figured out the photographer is Helmut Newton! This was fun, thanks for a design scavenger hunt!

Anonymous...I am sure you are joking, since this is a gorgeous woman, the only thing Cavalli and this beauty may have in common is Florence (and their passion for design of course).

Sorry, a correction to my earlier post. Not Irving Penn. Elsa Pretty photographed by Helmut Newton in 1975.

Maybe Schiaparelli?

Because I just read the Little Augury blog, I have to guess again and say Marella Agnelli, who is featured in that blog today! I'm just connecting the dots .... The images are so similar -- tall, slender, black & white photography AND she represents Italian aristocracy.

thanks for visiting little augury-how can anyone resist a contest? Elsa Peretti is the bunny and Helmut Newton is behind the lens.

whoever she is, she is absolutely stunning!!!
