A Breast Here; A Breast There

Alexa here. NYTimes style writer Guy Trebay reflects on nudity and the business of seeing naked people as being … well, rather humdrum. I can relate.

Editing through hundreds of photos of naked women for BuzzNoirBabes is not erotic after awhile.  Looking at the most private parts of a girl’s anatomy, I become totally pragmatic in my assessment of which photo to post.

Tim Blanks, a contributing editor for Style.com and Men.Style.com sums it up for Trebay: “It’s all context… When you see some doll walking down the catwalk in some sheer thing or nearly naked, it’s fashion … If you saw that same girl pole dancing in a club, it would be hot.”

Trebay reminds us that times have changed for models, even in the fashion industry. A decade ago, one had to persuade models like Naomi Campbell and Stephanie Seymour to change clothes anywhere but in a private space. (more after the photo)

Photo via NYTimes:
Today’s frantic, crazy-daze shows take place in nearly public environments of stylists, producers, modeling agents, hair curlers and the assistant to the assistant of the assistant. All carry phones with camers.
While trying to protest both privacy and imagery in an increasingly public, digital world, there is a philosophical shrug of the shoulders emerging at the same time. It’s the equivalent of photographers trying to control the flow of printed fashion editorial. C’est impossible.

Dancing in the Dark

Berlin was on the tip of our tongues Saturday night. “An incredibly sexy, happening place,” according to my art dealer friend. The women are bold … speakeasy fashion plates in restaurants of distinction. “It was a restaurant,” he said, “not a Cabaret.”

Bold women … femme fatale ladies with strong stomachs. Smoothly elegant with nerves of steel. Call her a babe, a woman of distinction and elegance. Looks are deceiving … the smoldering confidence is for real this time.

She aims to please … to a point. Without synergy, one of you exits Stage Left. More often than not, she’s the one sitting on the bar stool, waiting for her next act.

Steven Klein sells a darker version of celebrity culture, lighting his own version of Bonfire of the Vanities. His visual take on pop culture demontrates an emotional coldness, perhaps a “let them eat cake”, shoulder shrug.
Not all stars, of course. Klein is joined at the hip with both Madonna and Brad Pitt.
His Italian Vogue shoot is timely. Sadism, overt or subliminal, seeps through much advertising this fall, and it’s the woman who is cracking the whip.
