Star-Studded Cast Joins Paul McCartney In New Music Video 'Queenie Eye'
Business Insider - over 4 years
 Paul McCartney gets by with a little help from his friends in the music video for his new song "Queenie Eye." A star-studded cast ranging from Johnny Depp to Sean Penn star in the "Beatles" singer's video. McCartney starts off playing piano in an empty Abbey Road studios, and is slowly joined by a set of high-profile friends. Johnny Depp broods next to the piano, while actress Alice Eve writhes on top of it. Designer Tom Ford dances in his chair, and a fishnet-wearing Kate Moss breaks it down on a table. Meryl Streep watches at a distance, eventually partaking in the fun. Sean Penn, Jude Law, and Lily Cole also make appearances. "Queenie Eye" first caused a ruckus when it was revealed that Kate Moss and Johnny Depp would be coming together for the video — 15 years after the two ended their iconic four-year relationship. McCartney remarked on the pair's participation in the video, saying: "They are friends of mine and Stella’s," Paul said. "I am very lucky they agreed to...

The Naked Truth Of Juergen Teller's Photos
Huffington Post - about 5 years
Photographer Juergen Teller has a knack for stripping down the subjects of his work, both figuratively and literally. In fact, his images of Vivienne Westwood -- three photographs that feature the designer stark naked on a couch-- were deemed "one of the most inventive nudes that any artist has created in years" by Alastair Sooke at The Telegraph. Now, his Westwood triptych and more are bared at the Institute of Contemporary Art, in the artist's first major UK exhibition in a decade. Photographer: Juergen Teller, Title: Kate Moss, No.12, Gloucestershire, 2010, © Juergen Teller Titled "Woo!," the show includes iconic images from the 1980s and '90s, when Teller reigned supreme in the world of fashion photography. The works move seamlessly in their subject matter, showcasing sirens like Lily Cole and Kate Moss beside brooding figures like Kurt Cobain, often in unique poses rarely seen in the pages of magazines. Ever one to subvert the typical celebrity portrait, it's not ...
