Slim Aarons, at least by his own admission, did not photograph fashion: "I didn't do fashion. I photographed people in their clothes, which became fashion." But despite his claim, Aarons' work is inextricably linked to fashion. Aarons' incredibly influential photographs of high society and celebrities who are clearly themselves are still a source of inspiration for modern style icons.
Slim Aarons: Style showcases the photographs that both captured and influenced fashion luminaries. This volume features early black-and-white fashion photographs, as well as portraits of the fashion elite - such as Jacqueline de Ribes, C.Z. Guest, Nan Kempner and Marisa Berenson - and fashion designers, including Oscar de la Renta, Emilio Pucci, Mary McFadden and Lilly Pulitzer. With some never-before-seen images and detailed captions written by fashion historians, Slim Aarons: Style is a collection of the photographer's most stylish work.
