Irving Penn, Fashion Icon

A tremendous loss for the fashion community - brilliant photographer and portrateur Irving Penn is dead today. His work spanned decades, and he was the star of the style set, capturing virtually every great model and famous face over his more than 60 year career. For more details about his work, read the New York Times article here.

A tribute in photos:
