David Bailey & Catherine Deneuve

David Bailey besides being an icon of London's Swinging 60s, is one of the greatest photographers in fashion history. His photos are a vivid and timeless representation of the 60s. Still remembered after more than 40 years, he is said to have been the inspiration for "Blow Up".

From 1965 to 1972 he was married to French actress, and one of the most beautiful women in cinema history, Catherine Deneuve. Both were photographed below attending an event in London around 1967. David Bailey is wearing jeans, a suede jacket, a shirt, and a scarf; while Catherine Deneuve opted for a short black dress.
