In an elegant and sparsely furnished foyer, one model sits atop a table while the other simply leans against it. Both wear dresses with full skirts and corseted tops in shades of turquoise that are belted with rhinestone buckles. The John Rawlings photograph appeared in the October 15, 1951, Vogue. Rawlings created more than 200 Vogue and Glamour covers and thousands of feature photos during his tenure with the magazines.
