Baron Adolph de Meyer's Beautiful Eye

Stumbled upon the works of another fashion photographer from the past whose works give me goosebumps (in a good way): Baron Adolph de Meyer.  Since I'm in a sort of wistful and romantic mood right now, thought I would share some of my favourites.  I LOVE the lighting and soft focus in many of these photos; I especially love the way they highlight the texture and drape of the fabrics of the clothes.  Of course the models and the way (and settings in which) they are posed are pretty stunning, too.  As an aside, I came across a blog post about his wife, the Baroness, and its sounds like their story is rather racy.
