Mainbocher Corset Postcard
The image gracing this modern postcard is one of the most famous fashion photographs ever taken. In 1939 the world famous German photographer Horst placed a beautiful blonde model in a corset and stood her behind a wall. He then created an image of classic beauty.
This image was Horst's last photograph taken at the Vogue studio in Paris before they closed their doors at the onset of WWII. This explains the large crate against which the model leans.
The image, titled "Mainbocher Corset", is timeless. It could have been taken yesterday or over 60 years ago, as it was.
