A FEW THINGS ABOUT / POLLY MELLEN

Fashion legend Polly Mellen has a rich history of fabulousness. Protégé of über legend Diana Vreeland, Mellon started her career as sittings editor at Harper's Bazaar. She then moved on to glossy bible Vogue, which she edited for 28 years. From Vogue, Mellen moved to Allure, where she was creative director for the bulk of the 90's. At 84 years young, Mellen resides on an converted apple farm in Connecticut (click for VOGUE feature) and consults on various fashion related projects.

Polly has worked with photography legends Irving Penn, Richard Avedon, Helmut Newton, and Arthur Elgort. Her favorite? Avedon. Together they captured the  famous NASTASSJA KINSKI AND THE SERPENT styled with the eternally chic Patricia Von Muslin ivory cuff. Avedon said of Polly "She was and still is the most creative sittings editor I ever worked with." Major.
