Nina Leen, is such a great inspiration to me. She became one of the first women photographers for Life Magazine in 1945. She had such a way of capturing the true essence of the era and some believe helped many actors and actresses launch their careers. During her time at Life Magazine, she produced over 40 magazine covers and her pictures were often found in most magazines around the world! Hope this post takes you back to the 1950s. Thank you, Christian Dior for such an elegant silhouette style!
