Melvin Sokolsky and his fave model, Simone d'Aillencourt

Dear Shaded Viewers,

Last week I told you that one of the highlights at the festival for me was when Simone d'Aillencourt made a guest appearance to celebrate the exhibition of her long time friend, Melvin Sokolsky.

The Hong Kong based JOYCE '96 cover, photo by Gustavo Ten Hoever and an iconic photo of Simone d'Aillencourt by Melvin Sokolsky.

I remember when I put Simone on the cover of JOYCE in 1996, our New York Editor, Stefano Tonchi, told me that if I was working for Conde Nast they would have walked me over to the elevator and pushed Down. Gustavo and I had an amazing time with the lovely Simone, the coolest model I have ever had the pleasure of working with and a framed print from our shoot has been hanging on my wall for the past 12 years.

Hi was am looking for contact info for Simone. My father Gleb Derujinsky worked with her for many years before Mel and I am hoping to speak to her about the book I am working on. I hope that she can provide some info about her time working with my dad. Please feel free to email me. Thank you so much!

This week, I came across a picture of Ms. d'Aillencourt in the 1959 Photography Annual. I was 5 at the time it was published. So I was curious. Thanks for helping to satisfy my curiosity. Thank you for sharing. Jamie 30
