Skrebneski is celebrated as one of the world’s finest fashion and portrait photographers. His diverse body of work has won him international accolades and, for more than half a century, he has photographed the world’s most famous people, from Orson Welles, Truman Capote, and Audrey Hepburn to Andy Warhol, David Bowie, and Iman. In 1962, Skrebneski became the exclusive photographer for Estée Lauder, and over the years his flawless images of models such as Paulina Porizkova and Willow Bay made history. Five Beautiful Women is an elegant portfolio, originally published in 1987, to commemorate his twenty-five year collaboration with Estée Lauder. For the project, five distinctly beautiful models were chosen—Phyllis Connor, Karen Harris, Karen Graham, Shaun Casey, and Willow Bay—and, as Hubert de Givenchy notes, "[Skrebneski] succeeded in his very personal way to convey not only the external individuality of his subjects but, what in my opinion is most important, their inner beings."
