In a Chelsea photo studio last month, the scene was a jungle of sorts. Nothing as literal as palm-frond props—but there was a baby tiger and toxic ooze seeping out of jumbo Polaroids that Peter Beard had laid on the floor. Beard’s friend/muse/producer, Natalie White, warned no one in particular: “Don’t step in the goo! You’ll burn your feet off!”
Beard, naturally, was braving the terrain in socks. Now in his seventies, the man famous for his adventures in Africa seems as dismissive as ever of caution or over-planning. Beard made his way through the chaos in sweatpants, a wet paintbrush in hand. “I try and make it messy,” he said. “We don’t like chic.”
That “we” includes Raphael Mazzucco, the photographer Beard partnered with for the four-day shoot. White (who’s also worked with Olivier Zahm and Will Cotton) made it happen, but the two photographers are friends from Montauk, where both have houses. Another thing they’ve got in common: a portfolio full of beauties. Beard’s contains everything from Veruschka for Vogue in the seventies to the 2009 Pirelli calendar; Mazzucco’s, the stacked rosters of Sports Illustrated and Victoria’s Secret. They were working separately, thus offering Angela Lindvall, Noot Seear, Pamela Anderson, and the other models who came by the opportunity to do a two-for-one. And each was flexing his own style: Beard double-exposing images of African wildlife over models and Mazzucco experimenting with baby powder and colored gels.
Both were happy to leave a lot of the process up to chance, and neither had any particular plans for the images. “London would be good,” was as specific as Mazzucco got. For the time being, the only place to see them is Style.com.
Kate And Pippa The Action Figures, Arielle Dombasle To Perform At Loulou de la Falaise’s Funeral, Juergen Teller’s New Book, And More…
The U.S. toy company Hero Builders has turned Kate and Pippa Middleton into action figures. Both the dolls are supposedly wearing their dresses from the royal wedding, but let’s just say the toy company didn’t do any justice to the girls, or Sarah Burton’s craftsmanship. [Huff Po]

Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana hosted a party in Milan for Justin Bieber. While Dolce admits that “it might be slightly premature to talk about him as a style icon,” he’s definitely dressing the Dolce & Gabbana part at the moment (left)—just us, or do you see a slight resemblance here?

Happy birthday to Anna Dello Russo, who celebrated hers on Saturday. Tributes of shoe cards and blog-design-mimicking birthday cakes have already come pouring in, so we’ll just add our good wishes to the pile. [Styleite]
Speaking of birthdays, last week, Dame Vivienne Westwood celebrated her 70th. Her friend and sometime campaign star Pamela Anderson got her what might just be the perfect present: 70 acres of rain forest. [Telegraph]

Pamela Anderson is usually spotted around her home base of Malibu, sporting cotton beach dresses and Uggs. But she’s left the beach behind for a stint playing the Genie in the London stage adaptation of Aladdin, and with a few other irons in the fire—reportedly a clothing line and pop album, both in the works for early 2010—she’s stepping up her fashion game, too.
For the full London look, there’s no one better than Dame Vivienne Westwood, and the designer has taken a real shine to Anderson this year: Pam appeared in her Spring ’09 print campaign and on the runway for her Fall ’09 show. English paps snapped the actress outside a London eatery looking positively edgy in a Westwood Anglomania plaid wrap coat and Red Label booties. We love a fashion comeback here at Style.com, and we have to say she looks good. What do you think? Can Pammy work a high-fashion look, or is she better off sticking to the red swimsuit?
