a portrait of elegance

i just recently came across this captivating portrait of carolina herrera in her early 30s. her gaze meets the camera with such confidence, poise and strength. she's a true beauty in addition to being a fantastic fashion designer. when i googled this image i came across a lovely interview with her in tank magazine.

when she is asked what makes her happy her response is 'it makes me so happy to see all my daughters happy. my family. it makes me really happy when they don't have any problems.'

fundamental and elegant.
