Naomi Campbell is a lingerie-clad femme fatale

Naomi Campbell with a shovel or a riding crop (and a tempter) aught to spell trouble. But where there’s Agent Provocateur lingerie involved, it’s trouble of the best kind. Campbell stars as the femme fatale of the brand’s David Lynch-inspired spring 2015 campaign – and with Ellen Von Unwerth behind the lens, it’s a perfect murder, executed with perfect sensuality.

The heels, the legs, the view

Ellen Von Unwerth makes good use of a sweeping view and some window light for a stand-out shot of model Kiko Mizuhara. Kiko wears one of Dolce & Gabbana’s on-trend hair accessories for 2014: the gold coin headband.

Chloe Hayward does sexy glamour, the Von Unwerth way

Ellen Von Unwerth shoots characters, not models – fantasy women who are always more voluptuous, more vibrant, more wild; larger than life and far, far sexier. The Von Unwerth woman is the one cooking a pot of spaghetti with ’50s glamour waves over one eye, a cigarette in one hand, and an outfit consisting of a sparkling full-cupped bra and a frilly apron. She’s the…

Remember Cara Delevingne’s ’60s icons shoot for Vogue China? Well, there’s a video for that.

Jennifer Lawrence covers Tatler Russia

Hunger Games lead star Jennifer Lawrence is the cover of the May 2013 issue of Tatler Russia. The 22-year old actress looks like a sexy vintage glamour pin-up girl with her prowling cat-eye make up and with that bouffant headband hairstyle with soft end curls.

Ashley Smith, dominatrix cowgirl: weekend watch

One of Ellen Von Unwerth‘s strengths is her ability to pick a theme, and just go for it full-force. There’s no room for ambiguity: her shoots and videos – like this one, which stars Ashley Smith as a wildly dominatrix-like cowgirl – commit fully to their thematic choice in everything from styling to soundtrack, and that’s exactly why they work. Beyond the lingerie, leather harnesses,…

10 of the best magazine editorials of 2012

I’ll disclaim from the outset that the title of this post is inaccurate: “best”, when it comes to any form of art, is subjective. There’s no right or wrong on what can be called the best when it comes to fashion shoots, but there’s only so much you can explain in a title so I’ll say it here instead. There are certain editorials that stand…

Cara Delevingne shows more skin for Vogue Italia

Ellen Von Unwerth puts her trademark theatrical-slash-borderline-burlesque stamp on Cara Delevingne for the November 2012 issue of Vogue Italia. And while we’re not accustomed to putting Cara’s name and ‘NSFW’ in the same sentence, there is a bit of nudity in this one. Given her recent shoot for Centrefold and appointment on the Victoria’s Secret runway, seems that seeing the sexy side of Cara is…

More Katy Perry by Von Unwerth for ghd

Katy Perry can be a bit of a chameleon, not least her rainbow of hair colours. But for Ellen Von Unwerth’s campaign shots for ghd, everything is kept perfectly classic in black and white. You might recall a few initial shots from the campaign. Now, to launch the ghd Metallic Collection (which sees the ghd Gold Classic Styler on shelves for Christmas in all-metallic finishes…
