'Angels' By Russell James Is 304 Pages Of Nude Artistry & Sensuality

Erin Heatherton in ‘Angels’ by Russell James

I’ve appreciated the sensual photography of Victoria’s Secret photographer Russell James for years and am so delighted that the man artist who truly understands female sensuality is launching a 304 page book — his fifth — of black and white nude photographs. What a perfect gift for the holidays, one that women will surely appreciate as much as men.

The stunning art book captures runway veterans such as  Gisele Bündchen, fresh faces like Kendall Jenner, as well as Rihanna, and Victoria’s Secret stars including Alessandra Ambrosio, Doutzen Kroes, Karlie Closs, Candice Swanepoel, Behati Prinsloo, Lily Aldridge, Adriana Lima —all of them posing nude.

I hope people see images that are sensual, empowering to women and that show my love for light, shape and form.

“The photographs are very honest and they show women in their best light. They aren’t vulgar, they are sexy but sensual, and that is what I love,” said longtime Victoria’s Secret model Karolina Kurkova at the September 11 launch party at Russell’s good friend Donna Karan’s Stephen Weiss gallery . “People like to work with him because he makes them feel comfortable and he’s artistic. It is timeless, and something you’d like framed in your house.”

Behati Prinsloo for ‘Angels’ by Russell JamesSpeaking about ‘Angels’, James said: “My previous 4 books have been subject focused and this book is entirely focused on ’the nude’. I was incredibly humbled and excited when the people I asked agreed, as it indicated a level of trust that I greatly value. I took it to mean that the woman in the book felt the shots were something that other woman might admire, and that is my goal always.”

Doutzen Kroes in ‘Angels’ by Russell JamesModel Lily Aldridge, who was photographed with fellow Angel Candice Swanepoel, spoke fondly about the experience shooting with James. “It was amazing. I shoot with him so often for Victoria’s Secret that he is like a family member to me. I love him and trust him fully,” said Aldridge in a black Donna Karan gown at Thhursday’s launch party. “Shooting something like this felt very comfortable and easy. We had fun with it because it wasn’t for something specific—it was just a fun shoot to do. I didn’t even think it was going to be a book, but it naturally just became one.”

Kim Kardashian By Tom Munro For British GQ's Woman of the Year

Photographer Tom Munro turns his sensual lens on Kim Kardashian West in a nearly nude photo spread for British GQ, who bestowed their ‘Woman of the Year’ award.

Always ready to talk about herself, Kim shared her thoughts on the honor that has been widely debated in the Twittersphere.

“What a huge honor to win Woman of the Year,” she says. “It’s so special. I want to thank my husband [Kanye West] for making me feel like the Woman of the Year every single day.”

“My husband Kanye and I have an amazing sex life,” Kardashian tells GQ,

On the subject of sex tapes, Kardashian is silent, saying that if one exists, she would never want it to go public. “I never want to make the same mistake twice,” she adds, referring to the 2007 video with her then-boyfriend Ray J.

Luma Grothe By Ellen von Unwerth Celebrates A Sensual Body For Vogue Brazil September 2014

Ellen von Unwerth contributes another body-loving editorial to Vogue Brazil’s September 2014. (See Alessandro Ambrosio in ‘Mais Amor, Por Fabor’).  Model Luma Grothe is styled by Pedro Sales, with beauty by Silvio Giorgio. 

I marvel at the sensual openness of Brazilian society, with an embrace of nudity that would never happen in America. Turning to the book ‘Brazil: The Once and Future Country’, author Marshall C. Eakin observes:

As a rule, Brazilians are simply less inhibited and uptight about the human body and physical contact than peoples of the developed world. The string bikinis (tanga), for example, for which Brazil is famous, are worn by women of all shapes and sizes. The willingness to expose flesh, whether one’s physique be fit and trim or fat and flabby, reflects a people much more comfortable with the human body. This “laid back” attitude, however, does not stop the wealthy from resorting to cosmetic surgery. Rio de Janeiro has become the world capital for plastic surgery, and Ivo Pitanguy is its best-known plastic surgeon. The affluent are obviously not completely comfortable with physical imperfections.

Brazilians are also a much more expressive and physical people than North Americans and Northern Europeans. When friends meet, they invariably greet with physical contact. Men shake hands and embrace… Like so many Latin peoples, Brazilians also have a sense of personal space that often seems non existent to North Americans. Many times I have seen a Brazilian (literally) back a North American around a room as the latter tries to move away from the former. Brazilians want to be close and touching. North Americans want to keep more distance.
