Madame Grès, modeled by Dovina

Photographed in 1950 by Richard Avedon. Born in New York City, Dorothy Juba was discovered on a sidewalk in New York by an editor at Vogue, and had a photo shoot with Irving Penn the following day. She became “Dovima” and worked closely with Richard Avedon, whose photograph of her in a floor-length black evening gown with circus elephants—Dovima with the Elephants—taken in Paris in August 1955, has become an icon. The gown was the first evening dress designed for Christian Dior by his new assistant, Yves Saint-Laurent. In her heyday, Dovima was reputed to be the highest-paid model working.
