I don’t know how it is possible, but each picture I see of Naomi Sims is simply flawless.
Designer Zac Posen posted some pictures of Naomi Sims today on Instagram, and this one was truly gorgeous. An original street style artist if there ever was one. Bonus: I am obsessed with capes but I live in Los Angeles so long for cape weather…*sighs*.
Alas, just when I thought that first picture was the ultimate, I stumbled on this Naomi Sims 1967 photo from the New York Times Magazine. The cover was legendary and this shot by GÖSTA PETERSON shows that when an artist and muse work well together it is hard to know where one ends and the other begins.
For her ability to work a camera and some boss capes, I am dedicating my artist a day post to a legend. Naomi Sims was a stylish artiste in every possible way.
