Favorites from the 2014 Emmys

August 26th, 2014|Categories: Celebrity Candids, Fashion Designers, TV

Let’s preface all of this by saying that the Emmys are bullshit.  They’re dated, and lame, and tired and completely out of touch with the way that TV is growing and changing today.  That being said, PRETTY GIRLS IN PRETTY DRESSES!  Always a win.  So here are our favorites from last night’s red carpet

The Orange is the New Black cast is comprised of such an amazing, diverse group of ladies, that everywhere you turn you see some different kind of strong female role model.  Seeing all these ladies dressed up in the fanciest dresses, wearing jewels and done up all pretty is like a revolution in terms of women in pop culture.  Each one of them is a gift for all womenkind.   These are our favorite looks from this fantastically talented cast.

Mad Men, Downton Abbey, American Horror Story and Game of Thrones are all shows that have lifted the role of lead and supporting actress to incredible new heights.  Each one of these ladies express their own charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent via their personal style in such fantastic ways.   Here are our favorite dresses from these women.

And lest we forget our other ladies, like Amy Poehler, Carrie Brownstein and some of our favorite fellows.

Of course the party pictures are always the best part of any awards show, better than the ceremony itself, mainly because of booze.

Wonderland Magazine, September/October 2014

I’m madly in love with these adorable Wonderland covers for their September/October “Mean Girls” issue. James White photographs the impish Barbara Palvin, French beauty Stacy Martin is shot by Claire Shilland, Saoirse Ronan’s striking face is photographed by Stefan Khoo, and Alex Sainsbury photographs Lindsay Lohan as we all love her best: as a freckly redhead in pink. I can’t wait to see the treats contained within!

The Photographers’ Portfolio – Interview Magazine, September 2014

This year’s September issues have been a triumph! Interview Magazine keeps up the trend with a six cover homage to six iconic photographers. Each photographer shoots an editorial with an actress or model who also interviews the photographer. Steven Klein shoots Nicole Kidman in a distressed damsel shoot; Mert and Marcus show off Naomi Campbell’s epic curves; Peter Lindbergh and Léa Seydoux create an intimate melancholy story together; Keira Knightley poses for Patrick Demarchelier in an elegant, stark editorial; Mikael Jansson photographs Daria Werbowy in a moody black-and-white beach story; and Amber Valletta and Craig McDean pair up for a powerful fashion spread. Each editorial is absolute perfection. My favourite is definitely Nicole Kidman and Steven Klein’s work; Steven Klein is a masterful storyteller, and Nicole is a perfect muse for this is dark, dangerous, and sexy story.

Alfred Cheney Johnston

August 22nd, 2014|Categories: Classic Celebrities, Erotica, Fashion Photographers

Alfred Cheney Johnston was a New York City-based photographer known for his portraits of Ziegfeld Follies showgirls as well as of 1920s and 1930s actors and actresses. Johnston’s “standard” work, of course, was used by Flo Ziegfeld for the normal advertising and promotional purposes for the Follies, and mainly consisted of individual or small-group shots of the Follies showgirls in their extravagant stage costumes. However, after Johnston’s death in 1971, a huge treasure trove of extremely artistic full-nude and semi-nude full-figure studio photos (and their accompanying glass-plate negatives) was found stored at the farm near Oxford, Connecticut, where he’d lived since 1940. Most of these images (some named, mostly anonymous) were, in fact, showgirls from the Ziegfeld Follies, but such daring, unretouched full-frontal images would certainly have had no public-publication possibilities in the 1920s-1930s, so it is speculated that these were either simply his own personal artistic work, and/or done at the behest of Flo Ziegfeld for that showman’s personal enjoyment.
