The Glamorous Orient

Photographed by Norman Parkinson 1956

I stumbled upon this remarkable 50's fashion photograph of the astonishingly chic Anne Gunning in Jaipur Rajasthan, India. The flowers below are Lilacs, Hydrangea, Anemones, Dusty Miller, Queen Anne's Lace, Spanish lavender, Astrantia, Picasso Calla Lilies, and Peonies- an unusual yet exotic combination of colors and textures.
