From 1957- a Ben Zuckerman suit, in a dark colour (likely black) with striking white buttons, and accessories in white including a white hat, gloves and blouse.
This photo was taken by Gordon Parks, the groundbreaking photographer who made his name working for Life Magazine. Born in 1912 in Kansas, Parks was African American, and he portrayed the racism in society with his pictures. Parks also became the first major black director with his 1969 film 'The Learning Tree', though he is probably best known for another film 'Shaft'. Parks died in 2006.
