After the war, he continued his work as a portrait photographer, but started to design costumes for Hollywood films, winning an Oscar for ?My Fair Lady.? In the 60's Beaton gave fresh life to his photographic style, with portraits of Andy Warhol, Mick Jagger, and many Hollywood legends. ? comprehensive overview of one of the 20th century's great photographers ?
