Ellen von Unwerth

I love the work of model turned photographer Ellen von Unwerth. It's all really dreamy, it all feels like it's from another time, and it all kicks reality up a notch. Von Unwerth continues to be extremely relevant in the fashion and beauty world, shooting everything from MAC makeup ad campaigns to Lula editorial spreads. She works as a film director as well- I particularly love this video she did for Azzedine Alaia in 1990.

Read her BIO here.

Update: Today, a bit of a 'scandal' involving an Ellen von Unwerth/ Shrek photoshoot for VMan. Read about it.

Agreed - her work is sexily feminine and escapist. Love it.
