Veruschka: Vera von Lehndorff, David Wills
Veruschka may indeed be the most beautiful woman in the world. But this great supermodel has always been more than just a pretty face. Vera Lehndorff transformed her image, her name, and the world in the pursuit of high fashion and of art. Veruschka lavishly explores her life and career through interviews with luminaries such as Diana Vreeland and Grace Mirabella; through the photographs of Richard Avedon, Scavullo, Irving Penn, Steven Meisel, Bert Stern, and Rubartelli, among others; through magazine covers charting her ascension as model and icon; and through her own thoughts, musings, and memories. Page after page of photography reveals a story of adventure, of a changing culture, and of exquisite beauty. As a model, stylist, and creative conspirator, Veruschka exudes intelligence and strength. This limited-edition volume pays homage to the woman who helped to forever change the landscape of fashion and photography.
