A new photo series shot by Norwegian fashion photographer Sølve Sundsbø, featuring Gisele Bündchen and a crew of super-buff, super-naked, super-dark-skinned male models, is causing a bit of an uproar online. Over at Project Rungay, a commenter wrote: “wow, those photos are fierce. can’t tell if the guys are her slaves or if they’re raping her. interesting race dialogue. the first photo is super sexy.” At Racialicious, they’re “wary of the color contrast idea in fashion photography,” explaining that “darker skinned minorities always seem to end up as background color.” Commenters there questioned why Gisele is clothed and the men aren’t, and wondered if the race and gender issue would be the same if the series featured a black female with white male models (sounds like a Janet Jackson music video circa 1990). Some worry these types of photos reinforced the antiquated idea that white females are adored by everyone, especially black men. Others suggest without the charged racial and gender stereotypes, the photos would be mediocre at best. Personally, I found these issues more provocative when Robert Map[lethorpe addressed them in his photos in the early '80s. This isn't a question of gender and race, but, rather: "Are artists running out of original ideas?" What are your thoughts? [Click after the jump to see more of the photographs.] Keep reading »

Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady’s relationship didn’t start off on the right foot. Shortly after the two got together, Brady’s ex, Bridget Moynahan, announced she was pregnant with his baby. But Brady and Bundchen soldiered on, and got married in February. Here’s what she has to say about playing stepmother to John Edward Thomas Moynahan:
“I understand that he has a mom, and I respect that, but to me it’s not like because somebody else delivered him, that’s not my child. I feel it is, 100 percent. I want him to have a great relationship with his mom, because that’s important, but I love him the same way as if he were mine. I already feel like he’s my son, from the first day.”
The New England Patriots quarterback proposed to the supermodel on Christmas Eve — apparently he asked while the pair was flying from New Jersey to Boston on a private jet. Her parents were there for the proposal and, obvi, Gisele said yes. I guess congrats are in order, and, duh, they’re going to have some pretty kids, but they totally bore me. I liked him better when he was with Bridget Moynahan. She had some fire. [DListed]

During Fashion Week it’s easy to forget some of the pretty ladies walking down the runway do more than just act as coat hangers for fabulously over-priced garments. That’s why our girls at Glam put together this list of models who do more.
The (oft over-used) term supermodel gets tossed around a lot. But whether or not these catwalk queens have been officially coined with that status, they’re all super in our eyes. Somewhere between strutting down the catwalk in New York and Paris, and shooting high-fashion spreads at some exotic locale in the South Pacific, these beauties have also found time to become social activists, authors, and aspiring actresses–proving that they’re much more than just a pretty face.
The Writer: Alek Wek — Discovered at an outdoor market in London, Alek Wek’s strikingly unconventional look can be found grazing the catwalks of leading designers across the globe. But what has remained undiscovered, is her unconventional upbringing in the south of Sudan. Published in 2007, Wek released the autobiography, Alek, which probes into those youthful years: the bold escape from a home torn by civil-war and ultimate climb to stardom.

Lacey bras, silk slips, corsets, teddies, garter belts, assless panties…sexy lingerie big bucks, but we’re happy to spend for the fringe benefits! That’s the cost of getting a man’s attention, right? Well, like most things we think about men, we’re wrong. Apparently, all the dudes want is a lady in tube socks. Yes, that’s right, thick tube socks with nothing else. Remember that American Apparel ad? Just like that. If you need more proof to test the sock theory, here’s Gisele Bundchen posed in GQ with no pants, sporting knee-high athletic socks. If you let your man see this picture, he will beg you for some sweet sock action. Guaranteed. Keep reading »
