The great fashion photographer, Francesco Scavullo died yesterday in his New York home. His companion of thirty years, Sean Byrnes was at his side. He was 81 years old and his heart gave out.
Francesco was an amazing person. So full of love and kindness and great humor. I knew him well in the seventies during the Studio 54 years and rarely saw him after. He worked in Manhattan all of his life. He shot every cover for thirty years of Cosmopolitan Magazine and used such great stylists as Make up artist Way Bandy and hairdresser Howard Fugler. He put tits on the cover of Cosmo and started a look that still lasts today. He will be missed by everyone who knew him
