Cecil Beaton (subject)

Beverly Hills, CA: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer [MGM], Circa 1958. Vintage publicity photograph of fashion designer, writer, photographer, and art director Cecil Beaton, circa 1958. Mimeo snipe on the verso.

Beaton's praised costumes for Lerner and Loewe's stage musical "My Fair Lady" in 1956 led to Beaton being rehired for "Gigi" (1958), as well as a film adaptation of "My Fair Lady" (1958). He would receive an Academy Award for his work on the latter film.

8 x 10 inches. Very Good plus, slightly wavy on the top edge, with brief wear at the corners.
