This is a photo of Jean Ackerman - surprisingly hard to find any info on her at all, but I do know she was a hollywood actress in the 20s, and she used to be a Ziegfeld Girl. Very graceful and provocative, i like her.
I love lingerie...its so pretty. It feels like I'm wearing a secret. :) The illustrator for the top picture is Richard Grey, a prominant fashion illustrator. He's done alot of stuff for McQueen, and this is the ad for Agent Provocateur.
God, whoever this guy is, he is sexy. :) I don't know what it is, but I think smoking, holding the cigarette, inhaling, exhaling...all of it, its really sexy. Very provacative. It's too bad I don't smoke...although my friend has these multicoloured cigarettes with gold filters...I'd start just so I could buy those cigarettes, they're so pretty. But I'm a pussy and I'm afraid of cancer, so there you go.
I frequent Ffffound.com and I found these girls who I thought were just lovely...I will try my hardest to attribute credit to everything I post but I didn't find the name for this artist, so if anyone knows, please tell me!
