B(elle) de Jour

Herb Ritts and Bryan AdamsOriginally an homage to a Brigitte Bardot photo by Ghislain Dussart, Herb Ritts’s 1994 photograph of a scantly clad Elle Macpherson at age 30 was recreated just one year shy of the model’s 50th birthday for Harper’s Bazaar Australia August, 2013. A reaction to the media’s search for nude photograph’s of her, Macpherson decided to take matters into her own hand and give the press what they wanted, however, on her own terms with a Bardot-inspired spread in Playboy. To celebrate the magazine’s Fabulous at Any Age issue, Harper’s Bazaar Australia, enlisted Macpherson to strip down, save for a pair of black stockings, and recreate her famous Playboy cover.
