BBC Four: Seven Photographs that Changed Fashion

Rue Aubriot: Helmut Newton for French Vogue, Paris, 1975
Guy Bourdin for French Vogue, Paris, 1977
Fred with Tires (Body Shop Series): Herb Ritt, 1984

As previously mentioned after visiting the Annie Leibovitz exhibition, ZsuZsi hearts photography! So what more to ask for than a documentary on Fashion Photography featuring heavyweights Helmut Newton, Herb Ritts, David Bailey and Guy Bourdin on BBC Four last night?

Fashion Photographer Rankin takes a look through the decades to explore the defining moments of fashion photography and looks to recreate seven he thinks 'changed fashion' featuring models Heidi Klum, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Tuuli Shipster, Daphne Guinness and David Gandy.

Including interviews and input from: the man himself David Bailey, Lillian Bassman and now Italian Vogue Editor Franca Sozzani to help describe the changes first hand and to help recreate the iconic images.
It's on again on the 17th January at 9pm on BBC Four - Check it out.

Let me know what you think.
Kisses, ZZ xx
