Gorgeous portrait—Andreé Putman

This stunning portrait of stylish Frenchwoman Andrée Putman (December 23, 1925 – January 19, 2013) intruiges me because she looks somewhat androgynous, though she was very chic and feminine, and certainly the epitome of modern simplicity. This photo—made by Annie Leibowitz—was an ad for the Gap stores showcasing the white button down shirt. Andrée was a piano virtuoso, interior designer, but mostly she was a free spirit! Read more about her life here and about Putman designs here.
“I loathe pompous luxury.
I take interest in the essential, the framework,
the basic elements of things.”
