Paris fashion photos

Seeing the photos of Paris at styleonthecouch has brought back such lovely memories of our Christmas in Paris last year. Rather than get lost in nostalgic wistfulness, or perhaps taking my nostalgic wistfulness to the next level, I was inspired to put together a collage of photos taken in Paris by some of my favorite fashion photographers.

Norman Parkinson is always a great place to start.


Here, Suzy Parker and Robin Tattersall skate on the Place de la Concorde, by Richard Avedon.


Also Avedon; shoe by Perugia on the Place du Trocadéro. (Ella melts!)


You may not be able to tell this was taken in Paris, but it was. Avedon’s wonderful shot of the lovely Dorian Leigh.


Of all that Paris has to offer, it is this that I enjoyed and miss the most; sitting at a sidewalk cafe, watching the most stylish people on earth hustle past. Here Paris street photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson captures a moment in the sartorial revolution.

Here, the steps at Montmarte. By Brassai. Not a fashion photo, but full of swoon factor nonetheless.


My favorite photo of all time; Helmut Newton’s iconic composition featuring YSL’s ‘le smoking’ on Paris’ Rue Aubriot. *swoon!*
