Marilyn Monroe by Ed Feingersh in NYC in 1955

July 30th, 2014|Categories: Celebrity Candids, Classic Celebrities, Film

Ed Feingersh shadows Marilyn Monroe over the course of four days in 1955 while she was living in New York City. Exiled to the city from LA for attempting to break out of her 20th Century Fox contract, this was a time of transformation for Marilyn, a change you can see coming through in these candid, intimate photographs. Seeing her iconic face on the subway, unrecognized by those around her is surreal but perhaps even more rare is the pictures of Marilyn, make up free and not posing. The vulnerability in these pictures shows a side of Marilyn not often seen and makes you draw even closer.

Rocky Horror Picture Show character portraits by Mick Rock

Mick Rock is a legendary rock photographer, taking iconic images of Iggy Pop, David Bowie, Madonna, Debbie Harry and musicians going into current times. One of his most iconic photographs are from his time as the still photographer for Rocky Horror Picture Show, where he recorded this important moment in glam musical history. The ones of Tim Curry in the mid of his transformation to Frank-N-Furter are my favorites. Also, for those wanting to recreate characters from the show, these are hires, unobstructed views of the costumes and makeup.

Once upon a time, tall, long limbed, graceful, athletic women ruled the Earth. They were on all the magazine covers, in all of the ads, dated all of the rock stars like the Amazonian Goddesses they were. Another generation of ladies came soon after, ethereal, Pre-Raphaelite faeries with haunted eyes and delicate features. These beautiful icons of style have come together for the Vogue Nippon 15th Anniversary Issue, photographed by Luigi + Iango. The cast includes 80s supermodels Claudia Schiffer, Nadja Auermann, Stephanie Seymour, Linda Evangelista and Naomi Campbell, 90s supermodels Carolyn Murphy, Eva Herzigova, Guinevere Van Seenus and Maggie Rizer and the latest crop of supers, Saskia de Brauw, Tao Okamoto, Malgosia Bela, Mariacarla Boscono and Natasha Poly, all wearing Comme des Garcons with ease.

Angelina Jolie in the 90s

Angelina personified the It Girl in the mid-90s, style-wise she was a long haired rocker chic with lots of vintage influences, sexuality wise she was the bi girl that all girls had a crush on and personality wise she was sassy, aggressive and held nothing back. These are some of my favorite of her early modeling editorials, before Hackers would make her into a presence in the alt movie scene.
