Wynn Richards contracted with the National Cotton Council and began its first national fashion advertising campaign in 1943. For the campaign, Richards photographed various state governors' wives and children wearing cotton fashions, fashion designers with their creations, and the story of cotton from the field to the mill. Richards's photographs were reproduced in full-page advertisements in Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, and Mademoiselle. This image is of two young women wearing luxurious furs and fashionable hats. The statue on the right – reminiscent of ancient Greek sculpture – relates back to classical ideals of beauty and grace.
