As Paris fashion correspondent for prestigious publications such as Vogue, Glamour, Women’s Wear Daily and the Herald Tribune, and stylist for the likes of Helmut Newton and David Bailey, American photographer Mary Russell not only captured the mood of the elite bohemians who ruled the Parisian world of art and fashion in the 1960s and 1970s, but also became a central part of it.
Published here for the first time, the charmed lives of the ‘beautiful people’ are brought to life in this collection of Russell’s intimate portraits of the creative high society and of the cultural underground: Andy Warhol’s visit to Paris with friends from the Factory, the circle of Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé, Loulou de la Falaise, Gianni Versace and his boys, Gunter Sachs, Marisa Berenson and Karl Lagerfeld among many others. The photos are accompanied by fascinating personal anecdotes from the photographer.
