'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.”

Kate Moss Broke All Fashion's Rules Writes AnOther Magazine F/W14

Kate Moss by Craig McDean for Another F/W14Supermodel Kate Moss covers the F/W14 issues of AnOther magazine, with a fifth cover online only.

AnOther’s editor-in-chief Jefferson Hack tells us why Kate is the ultimate sensual rebel:

There can never be enough Kate Moss. Everywhere she goes, she is engulfed in a clamour of noise, questions and demands. People want to see everything, know everything. They want her face, her cheekbones, her smile, her style. They want to get under the skin of the sphinx. She is fashion’s obsession, “our generation’s most significant fashion icon,” says AnOther’s editor-in-chief Jefferson Hack. “She changed the history of fashion by breaking the rules as a model, channelling the ‘don’t give a fuck’ attitude of the noughties into a powerful signature stance of defiance…She did it without a script, without a plan, and seemingly without a care.”

Kate Moss Shares Left Breast As Mold For Champagne Glass

Champagne is my favorite beverage, leaving me pleased to share my return to Anne of Carversvville and GlamTribale with news that supermodel Kate Moss inspired British artist Jane McAdam Freud’s champagne glass molded around Kate’s left breast. Celebrating Kate’s 25 years in fashion, the project is sponsored by Mayfair restaurant 34.

Kate is not the first woman to inspire such a champagne glass. Marie Antoinette affords Kate the place of recreating the lavish concept glass which will also be available at sister restaurants The Ivy, Daphne’s and Scott’s. 

As for the future of AOC, there will be major changes that reflect the very difficult last year of my life. Any fashion editorials must support either GlamTribale or sensuality. Both domestic and international women’s rights, women artists, women politicos and women philanthropists will return to prominence. And I will integrate some of the wonderful inspiration from my Facebook friends into our content. 

As my websites return to supporting my core values, I share a toast to the future and all that it holds dear.

Much love, Anne

'Here's To Loving Our Bodies By Our Own Standards' Says Jada Pinkett Smith

What stands out in Jada Pinkett Smith’s recent image above versus her November one below is the reality that both are beautiful. In embracing her 8-10 pound weight gain, the 42-year-old actress hardly went to hell in a handbastet.

“I think I will keep it,” she posted on her Facebook page, adding “Here’s to loving our bodies by our own standards.”

I so concur. In my case, a key reason for my own scaled down presence at AOC is my need to spend an hour each day — at a minimum — in the gym. Of course, there are several other key factors driving this pause, but regaining my old body is a core one.

By my own standards, I must lose another 15-20 pounds. This isn’t as daunting as it seems, with 35 gone already over the last two years. After finding and keeping my best physical self in 2003/4, a crippling gym injury in 2009 followed by a horrific fall in 2011 left me on a cane for 18 months and suffering a huge weight gain.

Depressed but determined, I began my own road to recovery in July 2011. Now I’m in the home stretch with my injury almost fully healed thanks — not to my doctor — but to my dearest friend and masseuse Iman. Week by week we ripped apart scar tissue while enhancing range of motion and flexibility in my right leg. The process has been very painful — as have my sessions in the gym — but I’m so much better.

The biggest change I see in Jada is in her face. Her sunken cheeks are fuller. In my case, I’m determined to regain the body I love most and worked so hard to create a decade ago. A declining scale tally and increased muscle and mobiity are the only acceptable reads for me until I reach my former size eight self. At 5’8”, that hardly makes me svelte. In my playbook, it does make me Smart Sensuality sexy — and healthy. ~ Anne

Bombshells And Femme Fatales Aren't For Fashion Posers

Victoria’s Secret Angel Candice Swanepoel fronts the campaign for the brand’s newest fragrance update Bombshells In Bloom. I was never a fan of the Michael Bay, testosterone-driven bombshell mentality of VS Angels jumping out of helicopters and strutting across the tarmac like they were about to cut off some guy’s testicles. Nor did I like the vulgarity of a Diamond Bombshell Bra. But this Bombshell In Bloom positioning is one I like: Forever flirty. Always sexy. Decidedly playful.

The word ‘Bombshell” and more often ‘Blonde Bombshell’ first made it into the dictionary around 1942. In practice Jean Harlowe had already been called a ‘bombshell’, before dying at age 26 of kidney failure. The term ‘bombshell’ preceded sex symbol — describing both men and women — a term that was first used in the mid-1950s to describe film stars like Marilyn Monroe and Brigitte Bardot.

Our bombshell conversation comes as Vogue Paris takes on the ‘femme fatale’ in their March issue. While we’ve seen several superb editorials:

Kate Upton Defies Fashion Copious With Third Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Cover

As a big Kate Upton fan and supporter of Smart Sensuality women, I noted the comment on Fashion Copious last week in posting the Sports Illustrated cover above: “Kate Upton and what she represents does not seem to be the future.”

What does that mean, John? Exactly what does Kate Upton represent that offends you?

Imagine my delight just now to learn that Sports Illustrated has for the first time released two covers — the first one featuring Nina Agdal, Lily Aldridge, and Chrissy Teige and a second one for Kate Upton lovers. Kate goes three in a row.

Bravo for all you represent, Kate. Now if only certain men would shut up and stop making pronouncements about certain types of women, the world would be a better place for all of us. ~ Anne

Anja Rubik Performs Both Tricks & Treats With Nude Editorials

Of all the bare breasts and nipples that Anja Rubik revealed last week, these two shots by Luigi & Danielle + Iango for the new Intermission Magazine are the sexiest in my playbook. Her Vogue Russia editorial borders on cheap trash compared to her Intermission preview, along with Natasha Poly, Sasha Luss and Anna Ewers. As I wrote on Facebook last night and in AOC for years, any photo shoot with Luigi Murenu involved as a creative catalyst will be a tribute to female power and sensuality, and executed with vision and artistry. ~ Anne
