Photography is essential to fashion and proves out to be an integral expression of the industry. Some striking fashion photographs have ruled the tinsel town and have become iconic in their own right! On the occasion of the ‘World Photography Day’, we have put together some of them to cherish the beautiful relation between the camera and the couture industry:
In 1950, Vogue had an abstract January cover piece made by Erwin Blumenfeld. The above image is a recreation of the same by Rankin. It features the top model Heidi Klum, who licks her lips in this raunchy click.
Bert Stern, the fashion and art photographer is best known for shooting the very famous “last sitting” of Marilyn Monroe, two months before the actress passed away.
In the beginning of the ’90s, supermodels like Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington and Linda Evangelista, ruled the ramp with their drop-dead gorgeous looks. Peter Lindbergh shot some of these iconic supers in the early ’90s, these shots are still regarded as masterstrokes by many.
Madonna burst into the pop scene in 1983, with her leathers and tutus. The future queen of pop has reigned on with definitive fashion statements, since then.
Madonna’s most memorable signature look was the cone bra which was designed by Jean Paul Gaultier in 1990 which made many a heads turn!
Kate Moss took the world of fashion by storm in the 1990s, not being the typical supermodel type she had a beautiful, slim figure that had a distinct appeal of its own. Above is one of her first Calvin Klein ads, featuring her in undergarments.
Lady Diana Spencer was another impactful figure for the fashion world since she was an iconic trendsetter in her generation. Her wedding dress and her pictures donning it are literally part of the historical fashion folklore.
