This meeting of two great photographers is a rare treat.

Sixties wunderkind David Bailey spends some quality time with society portrait photographer and Academy Award-winning costume and set designer Cecil Beaton.

A who's who of fashion and society from the early '70s contribute their thoughts and personal anecdotes on British fashion photographer Cecil Beaton, including writer Truman Capote, fashion editor Diana Vreeland, artist David Hockney, fashion designer Ossie Clark and models Penelope Tree, Twiggy and Jean Shrimpton.
