Arthur Elgort was honored with the Council of Fashion Designers of America Board of Directors Award for his photography Monday night. Grace Coddington presented him the award so you know it was special. Arthur Elgort has been shooting since the 1970's and his photos are always gorgeous and often amusing. Some of my favorites include those he took of Keira Knightley in Kenya for Vogue in 2007. The photos are reminiscent of Out of Africa but completely original and romantic in their own right. They also illustrate why he is so deserving of his award. Congratulations to Mr. Elgort and here's to many more years of fantastic photographs!
