In 1968, jewelry designer Elsa Peretti first moved to New York, where she worked as a fashion model and began to design jewelry. Her long association with Tiffany & Co. began in 1974, the year before she posed for this photograph in a bunny costume by Halston on a midtown Manhattan terrace. This is one of Newton’s most iconic images.
