My favorite model who has always stuck with me is Marion Morehouse. I happened upon photos of her in various fashion and art deco books; there’s something about the eyes and poses in every photo I like very much. She was a supermodel of sorts in the late 20s and early 30s, sitting for Vanity Fair and Vogue photographer Edward Steichen, and occasionally Cecil Beaton.
I had no idea until recently that she was also the third wife of e.e. cummings.
Here she is with Lee Miller.
