Herb Ritts

nowadays many product spokesmodels have been replaced by actors and celebrities. models collapse of malnutrition because they have to be rail thin to work the runway - which is basically all that's left for them to do. but once upon a time, models were fucking hot and they actually ate food and they could fill out a pair of jeans. i've always been slightly obsessed with the supermodels of the 80s so i wanted to pay homage to great picture taken by a great photographer.

this has always been my fave. the photographer Herb Ritts shoots almost exclusively in black and white and concentrates on classical Greek sculpture. you probably remember the music videos he did for Chris Isaak's "Wicked Games", Madonna's "Cherish" and Janet Jackson's "Love Will Never Do (Without You)". all black & white, all on a beach, all sexy as hell, all featuring "Herb Ritts Models".

so if the above pictures is my fave model photo, that would bring me to my fave model video. and really, there is no video more sexy than George Michael's "Freedom `90" video. i can watch this shit over and over. i never get sick of it and it never fails to make me get up and dance around.

and just for good measure, my favorite model of them all (and probably the biggest bitch) Linda Evangelista. hottest. bitch. ever.
