Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves

Naomi Campbell, Rachel Hunter

Very impressive. Photographer Juergen Teller succeeded in making some current and past supermodels look like broken-down trophy wives, three-dollar whores, or petty shoplifters. In a recent W magazine spread, entitled, "Cover Girls," Naomi Campbell, Rachel Hunter, Christie Brinkley and Cindy Crawford are unable to escape Teller's unflattering white-out flashbulb. The result: severe, cheap, and vacant portraits.

I don't think this visual hatchet job was the spread's intent because two models actually look decent. Shalom Harlow and Carolyn Murphy emerge unscathed from Teller's lens. But maybe that's because Harlow vamps it up and Murphy went topless. (Images via W Magazine.)
