ICON | Gloria Guinness


Photo of Gloria Guinness in 1966 by Cecil Beaton for Harper's Bazaar via Rare Vintage.

Harper's Bazaar: Do you always wear white sharkskin tousers and men's cotton tops in black or navy when you are on holiday in Acapulco?

Gloria Guinness: Yes I do, is that wrong?

HB: Do you have anything special for the evenings?

GG: I comb my hair.

I can't wait to see Cecil Beaton's photographs at The Museum of the City of NY. Love the quote too, such nonchalance.
