Are you guys going W. T. F. ??? Okay, so sometimes I might choose to highlight a Lady-A-Day who is not necessarily a knockout television or film actress. Crazy, I know. But oft times I find that I’m more attracted to talent than I am to, well, undeniable good looks. Don’t get me wrong, I’m most attracted when those two traits collide (Archie, Chloe, Tilda, and many Ladies-A-Day to come…), but I think there are many deserving ladies who don’t ooze sex appeal. Annie Leibovitz takes the most gorgeous celebrity photos out there, but I find the photos from her personal life with Susan Sontag and her immediate family even more compelling. Annie’s been working it for like, four decades? A really freaking long time. And although she might have a huge entourage and a bunch of fancy digital equipment now, I still think she delivers the goods nine times out of ten (let’s not revisit that recent celebrity ad campaign for Disney). And have you seen her book A Photographer’s Life: 1990-2005? It’s so sick, it made me cry. A book of photography made me cry. So yeah, Annie Leibovitz. My lady of today.
How rad are the glasses, btw?
Do any of you have favorite Annie photos?
