Francesco Scavullo began his career as an apprentice in a studio that produced catalogs before he worked for Vogue and became Horst P. Horst’s assistant. During the 1970s, he helped create the ultimate ‘Cosmo Girl’ look that dared to be way more sexy than other women’s magazines of the time. His covers for Cosmopolitan, that he produced for three decades, revealed many models such as Rene Russo, Farrah Fawcett and Brooke Shields that would, between his hands, go through a real ‘scavulloization’ as he selected himself their provocative garments, hairstyles and makeup. As he also popularized the magazine’s controversial nude male centerfolds, Francesco Scavullo believed most of his work such as his intense silk-screen portraits of celebrities didn’t get enough credit. Earning further major fame with his photographs of Barbra Streisand that served to promote the film, A Star is Born or the Diana album cover that featured an incredibly sexy wet-haired, jean and white t-shirt adorned Diana Ross, the American photographer didn’t have to wait for stardom to enjoy the most exquisite anecdote. Indeed, as a teenager, he had earned a summer job as a busboy at a fancy New York restaurant and, although the experience was a disaster, he did recall once finishing a glass of champagne Joan Crawford had left behind. How fabulous is that?
