Every Picture Tells a Story: Nico in Paris 1960

This photograph was taken by Mark Shaw for LIFE Magazine in 1960. It features elegant couture, art and decadent modernist Parisian interiors. Nico is posing with a pair of dachshunds in the apartment of legendary Parisian interior designer Henry Samuel. Nico was a young model before she became famous. She went on to be the lead chanteuse of the experimental band The Velvet Underground.
