Valerie Hobson, photo by Cecil Beaton, 1941

The British actress had recently made Unpublished Story, in which she played a young reporter covering the dangerous days of the Battle of Britain. Beaton photographed her for an article 'Fashion in War Films', against an appropriately war-scarred background; the Vogue Studio, which had recently been damaged by fire.
