Evelyn Tripp Harpers Bazaar 1952

Pretty Little Inspiration by Mandy Forlenza Sticos

This image is flawless.  Not only is model Evelyn Tripp stunning, but the larger than life blooms casually thrown over her shoulder while wearing an evening gown is brilliant.  Evelyn appeared on over 40 magazine covers starting with the 1949 January cover of Vogue.  She was a true testament to the glamor of the times.
