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)
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.
