Sheer Elegance

By Alberto Vargas
About the image
Beautiful. Statuesque. Dramatic. "Sheer Elegance" is one of the most universally appealing images we have ever published. Loved by both men and women alike, she expresses elevated mood. While simply an image of a lovely woman striking a pose, "Sheer Elegance" also symbolizes the romance, sophistication, and strength that women embody.
