Pirelli’s New Calendar Girls, Dasha Zhukova’s Provocative Mag, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Son Tries His Hand At Modeling, And More…
Kate Moss, Lara Stone, and Milla Jovovich will appear in the next Mario Sorrenti-lensed Pirelli calendar, due out in December. The three, along with nine others, joined Sorrenti in Corsica for a week-long shoot just a few weeks before Moss’ wedding. [Vogue U.K.]
Dasha Zhukova’s new magazine, Garage, will make its official debut during fashion week, but The New York Times got a glimpse of it, dubbing it “one of the most intriguing magazines to come along in years.” Zhukova created three different covers, one of which is a Hedi Slimane photo of a nude model’s crotch, covered by a Damien Hirst-designed green butterfly sticker with a tattoo underneath.

Patrick Schwarzenegger, son of former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver, is striking a pose for Hudson Jeans. He appears shirtless in the denim brand’s ad campaigns and in three short films with Georgia May Jagger for Hudson, set to come out September 7. [WWD]
Twiggy is releasing a new album called Romantically Yours. She might be better known for her modeling talents, but this isn’t her first venture in the music business—her debut album came out in 1976. [Vogue U.K.]
Unretouched celebrity photos have become so rare, they’re marketable (see Marie Claire‘s May Jessica Simpson cover: “The Real Jessica: No makeup, No retouching, No regrets!”). But before PhotoShop helped celebrities look as good as inhumanly possible, a great portrait was the product of lighting, makeup, and a skilled photographer. Johnny Rozsa, who’s been immortalizing household names over the past three decades for publications like Vogue and The Face, collected 115 unfiltered, never-before-seen photos of stars before they hit super-fame—and, not to mention, before many of them went under the knife—into a retrospective coffee-table book, Untouched. There’s Catherine Zeta-Jones—back when she was just a beautiful Welsh girl—posing with her tracheotomy scar prominently displayed. And a younger, curvier Halle Barry in a beret, cheekily mooning the camera. Arnold Schwarzenegger makes an appearance, too, pulling a practically adolescent Andrea Dellal into a beefy embrace (pictured). Untouched is on sale at Barneys, and Rosza is celebrating the book’s release with a solo exhibition that opens today at Christopher Henry Gallery in Chinatown.
Untouched runs until November 28, 127 Elizabeth St., NYC, (212) 244-6004.
“In the beginning photography helped me to socialize,” confessed Annie Leibovitz last night in Los Angeles, narrating her way through a 60-minute slideshow presentation of her latest book, titled At Work, which went on sale this week. The 240-page volume is a career retrospective of sorts, including her discovery of the métier (with a Minolta in tow during her college days in San Francisco) and her tenure at Rolling Stone magazine while attempting to work alongside Hunter S. Thompson. (“I was in love with him,” she admits. “But then again, so was everyone.”) Eager listeners at the event co-hosted by Book Soup also lapped up revelations of the famed photographer taking mescaline with Thompson at Richard Nixon’s resignation party. For the crowd within the Skirball Cultural Center auditorium, Leibovitz could do no wrong as she divulged details on her portraiture, advertising, conceptual work to date, and three subjects that rank as career standouts: O.J Simpson, Queen Elizabeth, and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Afterward, the photographer signed books for the awe-inspired guests. In the midst of the onslaught, she shared a little about her current projects. “I’m finishing up an actor/director portfolio for Vanity Fair and I can’t really say too much,” she said. “But we’ve just done something very different with Tina Fey.” The photographer didn’t hesitate to add praise for the 30 Rock star: “She’s extraordinary! I mean, I really do fall at her feet.”
