Lauren Hutton channels Sunny Harnett, kinda. Hands down, Sunny wins this game of fashion roulette. Mother was wearing the hell out of that draped, one shoulder column and served face in the NAME!!!!!! This is actually one of my all-time favorite fashion photos (funny enough, it was shot by Avedon, who shot my all-time fave, DOVIMA AND THE ELEPHANTS). This is all at once elegant, sultry, glamorous and dangerously sexy. Lauren's photo is laudible too - this was from her Ultima makeup campaign - the first exclusive makeup contract ever, and she negotiated it herself!!! It totally has that cheesy 70's vibe going on with the over-perched, scary queen and the dirty ole' man leering over her shoulder. What it lacks in artistry, it makes up for by being a pop fashion culture gem.

I also love this Sunny Harnett pic. It reminds me of such films as Gilda, To Catch a Thief, and Bonjour Tristesse...all films where the glamour of gambling was played to the hilt!
