Dorothy Dandridge photographed by Philippe Halsman.

Halsman photographed Dorothy numerous times including her appearance in Esquire magazine’s when she was selected as Lady Fair for the June 1954 issue, her historic cover shot and spread for the November 1954 issue of Life. He was once again selected to photograph Dorothy for Ebony Magazine’s January 1955 issue on the “Five Most Beautiful Negro Women in the World.” Also featured were Lena Horne, Hilda Simms, Eartha Kitt, and Joyce Bryant. According to Halsman, Dorothy was very tense and self-conscious. "Besides beauty and elegance, Dorothy has an unusual intelligence. Intelligence is an admirable quality, but in a studio it can be a hindrance. It is hard to reach the real Dandridge hiding behind the iron curtain of her intelligence.”
