Those familiar with Newton’s fashion work for Vogue , Elle , etc., his photo essays for Life , or his earlier books will not be surprised by these portraits of celebrities shown as never before. Newton’s dancers, designers, and grand dames, indeed “elite society’s newsmakers, nightlifers, and would-be transgressors,” act a part in dramas he has contrived. From Salvador Dali to Grace Jones to Natassia Kinski (dancing with a Marlene Dietrich doll) to Prince Rainier, Newton’s portraits are often shocking, manipulative, and bizarre; they are never boring. Fine, full-page reproductions and Carol Squiers’s revealing interview with Newton enhance the work. Ann Copeland, Drew Univ. Lib., Madison,

A stunning–and shocking–collection of celebrity portraits, including an interview with Helmut Newton as an introduction. Among those portrayed are Andy Warhol, Ava Gardner, Sophia Loren and many more. 23 color and 169 black-and-white photographs. –This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
