Cecil Beaton in New York


This exhibition, at the New York City Museum, chronicling Cecil Beaton's New York Years- his photographs, illustrations, journalism and a smattering of extant dresses, was an absolute treat!
Fizzy with inspiration and an old-fashioned glamour. It was really striking how the sort of beauty, that sort of beautiful face, that appealed to Beaton was strong, interesting and full of intelligence. It made me long for a time-machine to spirit me back to those Bright Young Days- this exhibition is about as close to that as you're going to get!
