Preppy Icon of the Day

Today, we celebrate photographer Richard Avedon as the Preppy Icon of the Day.

Avedon's photographic subjects spanned the icons, politicians, musicians, actors, world leaders. In his career, Avedon captured some of the most amazing images ever viewed (in my opinion).

His personal style was, however, significantly more scaled down than many of his subjects. Preferring a button down shirt or polo and jeans to anything fancy, Avedon was "artistic prep" from his youth in New York City through his death on assignment in Texas.

Mr. Avedon, we salute your preppiness!
