John Rawlings 1948

Mark Morning Taffeta Gown
One of the first lensmen to elevate fashion photography to an art form, John Rawlings is known for iconic, glamorous images with a certain underlying mystique. In this photograph, from the October 1, 1948, Vogue, he captures from above a model in a made-to-order chocolate brown taffeta gown by Mark Morning, worn with a matching Baum Martens fur shrug and bronze Delman slippers.
