IN REVIEW: Extreme Beauty In Vogue

There’s nothing like having high quality prints of Irving Penn, Richard Avedon, Helmut Newton, Steven Klein, Annie Leibovitz, Steven Meisel and several other established photographer’s work in the confines of your own home. I had the opportunity to snag a copy of Dolce & Gabbana’s collaborated photo compilation, Extreme Beauty In Vogue, before it hit’s shelves in October, and I must admit, I feel like a child staring at a picture book, completely mesmerized by every photo. Edited by Phyllis Posnick with an essay by Eva Respini, Extreme Beauty In Vogue exposes photographic, stylistic and journalistic perceptions of female beauty and opinions on allure. Featuring two centuries of work, the evolution of cultural attitudes on women is exposed in this coffee-table must have. And for those of you hung up on Vogue’s typical conservatism, there’s enough nipples, asses, bestiality and blood to suit your fancy. Shove your Beatles anthology to the side folks, because this $55 investment is what your dinner guests should be snooping through!
