I really wanted to take an art break on this post, but sometimes you just have to go where the information is.

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. The first issue featured Juliette Binoche on the cover shot by Karl Lagerfed. Here's a sneak peek of the second cover shoot (December) shot by Greg Kadel featuring actress Julie Orden. The styling was done by the inimitable Natasa Vojnovic. Click on the image then choose the "Original" option for the full Julie O experience. That makes it all the more fetishistic, right?

In Paris this season when Kristen McMenamy came bounding out at the Givenchy SS08 with her signature madwoman-on-the go walk, one newbie was heard to exclaim, "Who's that old lady". Oh if only she knew. That old lady is a living legend, not only for the face, walk or poses but because of the entertainment she brought to the trade. 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, 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.
