Annie Leibovitz and Mikhail Baryshnikov: One Moment, Two Stars

Annie Leibovitz and Mikhail Baryshnikov: One Moment, Two Stars

After shooting Louis Vuitton advertisement campaigns for the last three years, Annie Leibovitz got in front of the lens, with dancer and choreographer Mikhail Baryshnikov, for Vuitton’s newest campaign in the Core Values series.  The series has previously featured legends such as Sean Connery, Mikhail Gorbachev, Keith Richards, Buzz Aldrin, Roman and Sofia Coppola, and Catherine Deneuve.  The longtime friends posed in Leibovitz’s New York City studio, where the subtle lighting captured a tender moment between the two old friends.

Hot Skin: Ain’t Nothin’ Like The Real Thing!

Hot Skin: Ain’t Nothin’ Like The Real Thing!

Yves Saint Laurent precedes each men’s show with a film. This season, American photographer and filmmaker Bruce Weber shot the film, titled Ain’t Nothin’ Like the Real Thing.  Weber is perhaps best known for his ad campaigns and catalogues for Abercrombie & Fitch, which feature semi-nude, sexy hotties.  In this film, Weber’s exploration of nudity opens with a clothed model singing to a cute little puppy dangling out of a jacket pocket. Then he and his friends start taking their shirts off (in slow motion). Then they take all their clothes off and jump into a swimming hole out in the wilderness. Weber splices in some vintage shots of nude women, too. The whole thing culminates with the guys cradling an adorable baby, along with some more torso flaunting.

It’s Saturday, so you surely have seven and a half minutes to spend watching this!

Consumed: Fabulous Lives Just Full of Lonely People

Consumed: Fabulous Lives Just Full of Lonely People

Consumed is an intriguing 3-min. short film directed by Bradley Young, which features a socialite and model looking her most gorgeous and bored.  She vamps for the camera in a variety of stunning fashion ensembles and interesting tableaux, while the subway busker Luke Trumble croons St. Louis Blues in the background.  But there’s a sad and gritty undercurrent to the action that reminds us of what life in New York City is really like.  Yes, there is an abundance of glamorous things in the city, but often attaining them isn’t worth the trouble to get them.  Sometimes those fabulous parties are just full of very lonely people.
