Enduringly beautiful nightgown ad for Vanity Fair, shot by renowned photographer Mark Shaw for Glamour, October 1955. The gown has a bodice of Alencon lace veiled in net, the waist encircled with a narrow velvet sash, with dress length skirt edged in net. A leading fashion photographer, Mark Shaw worked for Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Mademoiselle, and a host of other fashion magazines. Throughout the 1950s and 1960s Mark Shaw shot the European fashion collections and was one of the first photographers allowed to shoot fashion on the runways and "backstage" at the couture shows. His photos are legend, and it is easy to see why. The models are always in demure poses, faces partially obscured, adding mystery to the image. The ad is in Excellent condition, full page in black and white with right side binding margin; no wear or deficits. Shipped in a rigid sleeve and waterproof mailer for a safe journey.
