Vintage Babe: Penelope Tree

April 4, 2013

Let’s start by saying that fashion icon Penelope Tree is still totally a babe (I can attest to this because I saw her in person the other day). That said, I’m particularly focusing on some of the amazing vintage images of her taken by masterful photographers like Richard Avedon, Cecil Beaton, and Richard Bailey. Much of the collaborations with Avedon were also masterminded by heralded Vogue editor Diana Vreeland. With her lanky frame, wide, far-set eyes, high forehead, and heart-shaped face, Tree had the kind of unique beauty that paved the way for modern supermodels like Lily Cole and Gemma Ward.  Looking as some of these photos, it’s no wonder that Tree was a muse to so many! She carries both minimalist and extravagant avant garde fashion with ease and glamour.  Check out her many looks below and get to know this incredibly inspirational woman. 🙂
