THE WORK of German fashion photographer Ellen von Unwerth is loved for its girly-girl-gone-bad themes—when we asked one model who came in for a Casting Call the craziest shoot she's done she immediately came back with "everything I do when I shoot with Ellen von Unwerth." Think Valerie van der Graaf playing erotic dress-up, Bregje Heinenlounging poolside in platforms and retro shades in one scene and multi-model trysting in a motel room in the next. And our personal favorite: Irina Shayk and Anne V as twins with a dangerously strong sisterly bond.
Chanel Iman, who shot with the photog for Galore in 2013 paired up with her again for Glamour Italia. Given the mass-market appeal of the magazine, this spread tones down that Von Unwerth kink, but the girly-girl aspect—flowers, pastels, the best smile in the industry and a blonde tease that screams sex-kitten, is still locker-door worthy.
To sum up: Girl. Looks. Bomb. Check it out.
