POP FW 2005. Kinda like this shoot, she’s got an incredible body and the whole thing is just ridiculous in a way.

Love how my eyes always linger at the…fantastically coloured shoes.
Love the purple! and the pink! and that brilliant blue!
and her poses!
I know they’re naked ladies, but let your eyes wander down to their feet. Those shoes! Such adornment. It’s like a fascinating toy.
Hmmm, she’s not conventionally ridiculously good looking, but colour me impressed. She certainly brought it in this shoot.
Feel like doing one.
How Now Brown Cow?
A long time back, I wrote about fashion and nudity. Well, here’s part III (or IV?), except that it’s actually a photographer’s view on it.
The merit of nudity in fashion photography has often been argued, and there are usually two sides to this debate. There are those who feel that fashion photography is a way to sell clothes. If a model is naked in a fashion spread it distracts from the product. Then, there are others who have no problem wit the idea, saying that fashion photography is supposed to sell clothes the idea of beauty itself. And what is beauty in its purist form, if not the human body?
In a recent interview with photographer Jonathan Leder, I inquired about his thoughts on the issue. His response was simple yet valid:
“We asked a girl the other day how she felt about being naked and she said, ‘The human body is a beautiful thing.’ I suppose its true. I don’t have any problem with nudity. Walk into any museum around the world and you will be surrounded by paintings and sculptures of the human figure. It’s powerful and emotional…”
Check back soon for the rest of Jonathan’s exciting interview. For now, here is a black-and-white editorial he shot for Pig magazine recently.

Pictures at the source! I find them perfectly tasteful.
Known for making the slim male silhouette a fashion favourite, and the former Creative Designer at Dior, and the creator of Dior Homme, the man has since been more involved in Fashion Photography.
One of his latest photography subjects- Courtney Love, churned out wonderfully done shots of the usual mess that is Courtney Love. Granted, the woman does have her moments of Hits.
I’m loving this picture- the cigarette in her hand, and the virginal lace she’s got on.
There’s something delightful about it.
Another favourite of mine (as a true shoe whore would say). This is such a hooker shoe.

“Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months.”
Hilarious, though rather true if you think about it. Don’t get me wrong, I love fashion, but sometimes, people treat it too seriously. Sure, it helps your self-esteem (maybe) to dress well, to feel good. Sure, it is artistic. Yes, it is about self-expression too- edgy or classic, sexbomb or prim-and-proper, whatever piques your interest really. But at the end of the day, isn’t it supposed to first and foremost, about Fun?
There’s alot of self-persecution in local fashion- criticism about Hipsters, how one girl looks like another, lame leggings and gladiator sandals everywhere, etc. Sometimes, the comments sure do get vicious (although not without truth). But maybe we all need to just relax; it’s still just Fashion, it’s supposed to be Fun. So what if yet another girl in leggings-as-pants walks by? The world’s population is not going to convulse spontaneously and we all die. (Although sometimes it really can get rather Nasty…)

That said, maybe I’m not, you know, edgy, or cool, or avant garde enough or something, but I do find this fashion shoot Ridiculous and a little bit disturbing- the Zombie poses, AAAAH!
(Although I will take the pearls and the black lace dress, please).
