Inspiring Fashion Photography

How do celebrities reach iconic status? Is it because they are so fabulous in and of themselves? Or maybe it's because of their infamous lifestyles. Either way, they wouldn't be anywhere without the PR machine and the marketing wheel a-spinning.

In a bilateral effort to maximize their own public exposure, and publicity for the designer duds they wear, magazine photographers capture images on film to linger in our memories forever.

I won't dare to compare Kirsten Dunst with Marilyn or Audrey, but the following photos are really beautiful, creative, and inspiring. Will we someday place ol' Snaggletooth among the ranks of the infamously elite?

Carrie Bradshaw once said, "When I first moved to New York, and was totally broke, I used to buy Vogue instead of dinner. I felt it fed me more."

Thank you, fashion photographers across the world. You continually create such gorgeous images on the pages of our magazines. I do appreciate it.
