Later photographed by Richard Avedon, Lily Cushing, at 18, already has the hallmarks of great beauty - wonderful features, spun-gold hair and height, apparently a trait of the upper crust Cushing family. When this portrait by Horst was published in a 1962 issue of Vogue, she was a student at Sarah Lawrence College, outside New York City. In the May 2015 House Beautiful, her profile by Avedon hangs on a wall in the apartment of older sister, designer Justine Cushing.
