It's good to have your antenna up these days. A few posts back TI dug up a 90's Mugler shoot for Playboy. Today we got the hot tip that Playboy France just got a blue chip launch.

Kristen has morphed from glamazon to androgyne to Career Woman back to glamazon into her Grand Dame incarnation this October. Here are our Top 10 Legendary Kristen Moments. She's so Marquess ( By way of Philadelphia)!

"I want to go beyond cool. I'm bored with it."
Bob Richardson

Bob Richardson, the book, is as lavish and glossy as you would want it to be. Terry Richardson, son of, certified blue chip photographer of our day and the editor of this tome, certainly outdoes himself, along with the Creative Director Doug Lloyd and Art Director Gustaf Torling. They deliver a beautiful coffee table tribute that hits all the right, all the expected notes. The cover is that iconic image . Inside is the legendary shot of the model weeping on the beach and Terry has been vigilant in tracking down all those missing tears , chromes and prints from 60's and 70's issues of Harper's Bazaar, Nova, Italian, French and British Vogue necessary to complete the puzzle.
