What I stumbled upon late last night are photographs from celebrity photo shoots that I never knew I wanted to happen. Martin Schoeller takes your favorite celebs and– using a bit of fancy and fantasy– puts them right in their element. Zach Galifianakis in a duck bath, Quentin Tarantino in a straight jacket, and Angelina Jolie… as a vampire? It all kinda makes sense to me!

Yeezy Does Porn.

If you were model-turned-editor Anja Rubik, wouldn’t you ask Kanye West to be a contributor to your new erotica magazine? Of course you would!

Kanye joins Annie Liebovitz Ellen von Unwerth, and many other industry talents who are also contributing work. Check out Yeezy‘s beautiful, dark, twisted fantasy porno inside.

Gisele Bündchen Stops By Terry Richardson’s Studio

Okay, if I put aside the creepy feeling I get looking at Terry Richardson (don’t google his name + ‘sexual allegations’ if you want to view these lovely pictures with an unfettered mind), I can really enjoy his work. He recently spent some professional time (ahem) with Kate Upton for her GQ shoot and then he got hella lucky (ahem) when supermodel Gisele Bündchen casually strolled into his NYC studio. Check out pics from their impromptu photo shoot inside. And no more jokes about sexual allegations. Promise.

Pink Is The New Obsessed

Dear French Vogue’s Givenchy Galerie

Je t’aime, Je t’aime, Je t’aime! So why must you and Vogue.French torture me with your beautiful images alongside lovely-looking words I cannot understand (or… um je ne comprend pas)? With each new post you remind me of that gloriously difficult time I spent with the French language– eight intense and invigorating months of verb conjugations that I can barely remember.
