Actress, musical artist, Lenny Kravitz protegee, and more popularly known as the woman married to Johnny Depp, Vanessa Paradis had a very visibly celebrity life during the early ’90s. But now she’s content on being a mother and wife to one of Hollywood’s most popular leading men. The French beauty had a photo session with amazing photographer Ellen Von Unwerth during her heyday, and it’s only now we get to see those awesomely sexy pics. You’ve probably seen a few of them here and there, but you can always count on me to scour the web in search of EVU’s pics.
I posted these pics of Oscar-winning actress Marion Cotillard that appeared in DT Magazine by famed photographer Ellen Von Unwerth which featured Marion in some very hot and steamy lingerie. If you’re like me, you can appreciate Ellen’s ability to bring out the sexy from all her subjects. And Marion is a perfect match for that. A combination of talent, sweetness, sensuality, and innocence makes her the perfect Ellen subject. Here are a few images that didn’t make the issue, in their full, text-free glory.
My continuing attempt to post every celebrity every photographed by the amazing photographer Ellen Von Unwerth continues with this classic shoot she did with model/actress/MILF Elizabeth Hurley. In it, Liz takes on many personas, from the naughty girl to the space-age vixen. Goes to show that a great photographer and an amazing model could make works of art.
The Unwerth scores another sexy hit photoshoot featuring supermodel Eva Herzegova. Here they are trying to capture the spirit and spunk of vintage pin-up model Bettie Page and, im my opinion, suceeds admirably. There’s always something inherently hot about Ellen’s photos, and this one is no different. She could take pictures of empty coke bottles and still make them look sexy. I wonder if it’ll work on Rosie O’ Donnel…
Fans of this site know my affection for the amazing photographer Ellen Von Unwerth. So it’s extra exciting to see her take on one of the sexiest pop stars in music today: Kylie Minogue. Not really sure if she’s worked with the Unwerth before, but if this is the first time, it was well worth the wait. These are promo pics for her upcoming summer tour Kylie’s Party which will kick off very soon. I hope Madonna sees these. This is the way to stay relevant in the music industry – not pushing your sexuality (not to mention age-appropriateness) to the point of creeping people out.
Continuing my desire to post every single photo session of famed photographer Ellen Von Unwerth, here are some shots of British singing sensation Duffy that she took in 2008. The sexy quality is there as always, which leads me to believe that even if she’s photographing a bag full of feces, she’ll manage to make it look hot. As for Duffy, since her multi-platinum album debut last year, she’s been on a rollercoaster ride of praise and awards – deservedly so. She’s like the anti-Winehouse – great talent minus the crazy. Which may seem like a bad thing to some people.
Taken during her “What happened to…?” phase around 2000 (she’s now a regular on the TV series The Secret Life of the American Teenager - she’s the mom), Molly Ringwald tried to gain some visibility by doing a shoot with acclaimed photog Ellen Von Unwerth who’s known for taking pics of really hot Hollywood women. And I must say even with the extra poundage, Molly looks amazing in these. So even though her career has basically just two phases (80’s teen queen and now, Mom) these serve as a good in-between for those two sides of Molly. Frankly, I prefer her like this – sexy with a hint of awkwardness.
Here’s another great photo set from photographer Ellen Von Unwerth. This time around, she’s using the wily, scorching ways of Christina Aguilera. As Ellen pushes the contrast in her photos, she also pushes her subject’s sensuality to it’s breaking point without really going overboard. So I’m guessing Christina’s the perfect subject to achieve that effect. Sheding her ultra-skanky Dirrrrty ways, Christina’s gotten to be mroe of a classic bombshell than a slutty ho. Nice move, Xtina!
I guess by now you all know I am a huge fan of Ellen Von Unwerth. Any hot lady she photographs just ends up being hotter when she points the camera at them. I don’t know how she does it but she does. She could probably make Rosie O’Donnel look scorching… okay… bad image. Back to reality. My latest find is her shoot with Twilight star Kristen Stewart who looks so very sexy in these pics. Playing up her tomboy image, Ellen puts her in a garage playing with mechanic’s tools — in haute couture! Trust Ms. Von Unwerth to twist things in a sexier direction. And Kristen has never looked hotter.
Recent Oscar winner Penelope Cruz is one of the most photographed women in the world. So it’s no surprise that renowned photographer Ellen Von Unwerth would choose her as a subject. Ellen specializes in amping up the sensuality in her subjects, but keeps it looking edgy and raw (as you can see in these Emma Watson pics). So enjoy these ultra hot pics and check out her next film Elegy where she’s got some pretty steamy nude scenes.
