Belgian born actress Audrey Hepburn (1929 - 1993) socialising at a cocktail party in San Francisco. 

Slim Aarons (1916-2006) worked mainly for society publications photographing attractive people doing attractive things in attractive places. 

Taking pictures of the rich and famous both before and after serving as a photographer for the US military magazine Yank during World War II. 

His work has been included in the publications Town and Country, Holiday, Venture, LIFE and most well known for his photographs Poolside Gossip and Kings of Hollywood. 

Closely aligned with Robert Capa and Henri Cartier-Bresson, Aarons declined to join them in the founding of Magnum, leaving behind the world of black and white for sun-dazed glamour and frivolity. 

His intimate portrayals of the in crowd and jet set are rich in the wit and charisma that afforded Aarons such incomparable access to the highest of societies.
