Photographer John Dominis at Contessa Gallery


When all else failed, fashion could always bring a smile to photographer John Dominis’ face. This Friday and Saturday night, the former photo editor for People magazine (1974-78) and Sports Illustrated (1978-1982) will be on hand at Legacy Village’s Contessa Gallery for the opening of “Killer Looks: Iconic Fashion Photography.” The show, which runs till May 4, features portraits of 20th century fashion symbols, including Marlene Dietrich and Noel Coward — first displayed in magazines like Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar... Following a champagne reception that begins at 6 pm, Dominis will give a talk on the evolution of fashion photography. And for those who believe that fashion is art, you’ll be happy to know that Lush, Legacy’s upscale boutique, is having its twice-a-year sale this weekend, with prices slashed 50-75 percent. It’s enough to make a fashionista smile after a Botox injection. -- Rebecca Meiser
