  1. Michelle O! A stunning looker indeed. She looks amazing in every shot and if someone takes care of her, she will easily fill the space when Kate Moss decides to call it a day ( – not that there's any need for that decision for a while).
    I'm not too keen on the photographer's heavy touch of noise, it's as if he's introducing her through a mist until we can cope. Well, no need, even the little we can see in the picture entitled "Silk panties by….." says it all. She'll go far.

  5. michelle here is pretty but very comercial looking. not unusual or high fashion at all. but hey, that's just my opinion. and she looks about 15-17 years old. so it looks like they just stole this pics from some pretty girl's myspace.

  8. The model is nothing special at all. I completely disagree with the first comment, as said above, her look is generic- nothing special, maybe a macy's catalogue face, and certainly should not ever be compared to Kate Moss.

  11. I don't get this trend for 'normal' girls. This isn't fashion its just strange. It looks like its discarded casting photos from the 70s! The hair and makeup and styling and everything is very amateur yes.

  14. Yeah, it looks amateurish but I guess that's the effect he wanted to achieve… as if some guy in the 80s would take his girlfriend to the beach to take a few sexy shots… and if he wanted to achieve that effect then he did, I guess… not that I particularly like it, but it definitely offers an alternative to the glossy, over-lit, over-photoshopped fashion shots that we are used to.

  17. this kind of seems like child porn to me. only because she LOOKS extremely young (unlike someone like karlie kloss who can do mature editorials like the calvin klein one AND cuter fun ones like for teenvogue), and how she's either not wearing pants or a shirt. oh, and the fact that she has fake looking blonde hair. ugh.
