Lauren Hutton Wears Calvin Klein - 1973

Two of fashion's rising young stars in 1973 are combined in this photo by Richard Avedon. Lauren Hutton began modeling in the 1960s. The year after this photo was taken, Hutton would become the first million dollar supermodel by landing an unprecedented exclusive modeling contract with a cosmetics company. Revlon made Hutton it's face for the Ultima II line.

Hutton wears a sweater coat with matching skirt by Calvin Klein. Klein started his own coat company in 1968 after several years of designing for other labels. By 1970, he expanded into sportswear and in '73, he got his first of three consecutive Coty awards.

The sweater coat and skirt are of salt and pepper acrylic knit trimmed in silver fox fur. Hutton wears the set with a dark blouse, skinny belt and long gold chains. Love the face veil on the hat.

Ms Hutton wears it so well! She knocks the socks off most contemporary models. Great post as always!

Isn't she gorgeous? I love everything about this photo. The model, the suit, the veil, the fur trim, the perfect 70s accessories. Just everything!

I agree with all commenters. Everything about this photo is perfect. Silver fox collar highlights the lovely texture of the suit, and in turn, gets highlighted by that texture, so they both add to the other.
