How to Make the Fur Fly

I've been falling a bit behind on blogging lately, so please bear with me while I catch up and respond to new comments and e-mails tonight! I haven't even turned on the computer in the past three or so days which is unheard of, for me. But I finally had the time to do some reading and see the new Star Trek movie! They could've toned down the special effects overload, but I did enjoy the many comedic pauses. Are there any fans here reading the blog?

Anyways, here are a few shots from one of my favourite vintage Helmut Newton editorials from the December 1967 issue of British Vogue. Flying furs aside, I love the suspended action in these photos. I am especially fond of the last two which are just epic and definitely not fashion pretty.

Diana: This "fashionista" was a geek first. And still is, I reckon :)

You're the 2nd person to say that Star Trek is funny. I really should watch it.

I love fashion photography for things like this. There's so much room to go completely crazy. I love the first picture.

I totally didn't think I was going to like Star Trek, but then I saw it and thought it was amazing. I have a thing for Spock, I guess.
