ICON | Ann Bonfoey Taylor

Photos of Anne Bonfoey Taylor in a custom Brooks-Van Horn military costume (she skied in uniforms from the Civil War as well as in her own tailor-made creations including a matador cape and hat) and in classic Western attire for riding by Toni Frissell via The Wall Street Journal, and via ARTBOOK (far right).

"Ann Bonfoey Taylor was a gifted sportswoman and had a discriminating eye when it came to fashion. She graced the pages of Town&Country, Harper's Bazaar and Vogue throughout the 1950s and '60s. Nicknamed Nose Dive Annie, she was an alternate on the Women's Olympic ski team, a flight instructor for the Navy in WWII and an accomplished equestrian and tennis player." —Charlotte Moss
