Monday Morning Photo

Le Smoking by Helmut Newton. 

It’s that time of the week again – Monday – which means it’s also time for another installment of Monday Morning Photo! Today’s inspirational image was taken by Helmut Newton, and is one of the most iconic fashion images of all time. The photograph features a model wearing Yves Saint Laurent’s le smoking tuxedo, smoking a cigarette in a Paris alleyway. Le smoking started a revolution in women’s fashion – it was the perfect combination of power and sensuality. And Newton’s stunning photo heightened it’s iconic status. The beauty of the image lies in it’s simplicity, proving that sometimes, less is truly more. We hope it inspires you this week!
