The fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld rules out T-shirts for himself categorically. He finds them offensive to his taste. Lagerfeld says that a properly tailor-made shirt not only looks better but it will actually keep you cooler, dryer and more comfortable in hot weather. For at least 25 years I have not heard him change his opinion on this subject. Lagerfeld creates fashion but he has style.
This morning I read in the Guardian about L’Oréal having to pull ad campaigns featuring actress Julia Roberts and model Christy Turlington because the images were overly airbrushed. As a portrait photographer my approach to portraiture has always been to find my sitters’ inner essence and natural beauty – without airbrushing. I really do believe that everybody is beautiful, it just depends on how you look at them.
