BONDAGE AT ITS BEST

Lipstick + pearls + stockings = hot

Would you strip down to your undies for a few snapshots? Perhaps not. But if Ellen von Unwerth was behind the lens, we bet you’d take it all off. The former model, who gained notoriety as a photographer when she infamously shot Claudia Schiffer in sultry Brigitte Bardot–style for Guess in the early ’90s, has an extraordinarily playful and erotic sensibility that captures women in the most illuminating light. The Staley-Wise Gallery is once again showcasing a series of von Unwerth’s black-and-white and color images in the exhibition Fräulein, which features seductive images of supermodels and celebrities, including Lindsay Lohan, Kate Moss, Carla Bruni, and Britney Spears, in erotic poses and very little clothing. If you’re thinking about sending your love some arousing photos à la von Unwerth, what you’ll learn is this: A string of pearls goes a long way.
