I really dig this Charles Henry Ford photograph by British photographer Cecil Beaton. … Seriously, Where can I get a catsuit like this? It was designed by Salvador Dali and adorned with Ford’s own hands. He can be sure he will be the only one in the room wearing anything like it.
I just think this is SO great. I love finding stuff like this! Discovering people I did not know. Charles Henry Ford, no relation to the business magnate, was a writer, poet, collage artist, photographer, and filmmaker who hung out in Gertrude Stein’s legendary Salon.
Cecil Beaton had a very interesting career as a war photographer, interior designer and a fashion photographer. Talk about never getting bored.
