Help Identify An Iconic Photo - from Life Magazine?
August 16, 2016 4:58 PM   Subscribe

I remember looking through books in my parents' basement as a kid, and I think they had a few 60's or 70's era Life yearbooks. There was a fashion shoot that has very much made an impression on me, but I can't find it, or any details about it.

I know the photo is online, I found it once and then lost it. It is either Pop Art or Op Art style (maybe?) and the one photo I really remember is of a model in a colorful outfit and probably tights, standing in a wide stance in profile, and looking at a painted horse. Or a horse painted on a wall. I would love to know who the photographer was, the year this set was taken, and who the clothing designer was as well.

Best answer: I love this one too! It was in the Far Out Fashion section.
At least, I think it's the same one.
Model is wearing Giorgio di Sant' Angelo: Orange tights with blue flats. A very colorful short dress. She's looking at an orange horse with a yellow and rainbow background.
Date is 1969.
The photographer is listed as Greene-Eula. The Eula would be Joe Eula who often worked with Milton Greene.

Since eBay images tend to disappear after a while, I've uploaded it here, so people seeing this thread later will be able to view it.

Response by poster: UPDATE - a friend found the entire spread! It is called "Dreams Of A Bright New Fashion" and here it is.
