Rara Avis

[click to enlarge]

In the course of mining our library for images to include in our New Year's post, I came across Francesco Scavullo's portrait of artist and fashion editor Bridget Tichenor. This photograph was taken in 1978, when Tichenor was 61. Gorgeous! I now have the definitive blueprint for styling my later decades.

Tichenor was the subject of the 1985 documentary short Rara Avis, directed by Tufic Makhlouf. Part one is below; two and three are after the jump. (The imagery makes it totally worthwhile, even if you don't speak Spanish.)
