At a time in which a woman can be a firefighter, surgeon, astronaut, military officer, athlete, judge, and more, what does it mean to dress like a woman? Dress Like a Woman turns that question on its head by sharing a myriad of interpretations across history. The women pictured in this book inhabit a fascinating intersection of gender, fashion, politics, culture, class, nationality, and race. Organized chronologically, this book includes 300 incredible photographs that illustrate how women´s roles have changed over the last century. There will be some familiar faces, like trailblazers Amelia Earhart, Angela Davis, and Michelle Obama, but the majority of photographs are of ordinary workingwomen from many backgrounds and professions. To contextualize the visual arc of the book, Dress Like a Woman includes a foreword by a renowned fashion writer and an introduction by a feminist activist.
This mother and daughter duo combine their love for fashion with a free-spirited outlook to create eye-catching necklaces that radiate positive energy and have won a celebrity following, including Tilda Swinton and Beyonce. After ten years jet-setting through the fashion world as a photographer, Kira Lillie teamed up with her mother, Vanessa, in 2010 to make the VK Lillie Medicine Bag collection. As a child growing up in Santa Cruz’s spiritual community, Kira helped her mother, a healer, create petite, crystal-filled pouches inspired by the ancient Native American tradition of wearing meaningful objects around the neck. Reviving this family practice, the duo combines their love for fashion with a free-spirited outlook to create eye-catching necklaces that radiate positive energy. This winning combination has gained VK Lillie a celebrity following, including Tilda Swinton and Beyoncé. Environmentally conscious animal lovers, Kira and Vanessa handcraft each Medicine Bag from vintage leather gloves and then hand-sew each one onto a fine Italian gold or silver-plated diamond-cut ball chain. Nestling inside the pouch is a cleansed pale rose quartz crystal, which is known as the stone of “gentle love;” bringing peacefulness and calm to relationships. The rose quartz helps us discover the ability to love and forgive ourselves, hastening self-acceptance, and encourages us to realize that all change is important, even difficult change. The Medicine Bag comes in white, blue, and yellow, in medium and small sizes, and with a choice of a gold or silver-plated ball chain. Each one is unique. The Medicine Bag is also available embellished with quartz crystals and Japanese Miyuki seed beads.

Ellen von Unwerth war ein Supermodel, bevor der Begriff überhaupt erfunden wurde. Sie kennt sich also aus mit dem Fotografieren schöner Frauen und ist heute eine der originellsten und erfolgreichsten Modefotografinnen weltweit. In diesem Band würdigt sie die aufregendsten Fräulein, die weiblichen Sex-Ikonen unserer Zeit. Dazu gehören Claudia Schiffer, Kate Moss, Vanessa Paradis, Britney Spears, Eva Mendes, Lindsay Lohan, Dita von Teese, Adriana Lima, Carla Bruni, Eva Green, Christina Aguilera, Monica Bellucci und viele mehr. Von Unwerth wechselt mühelos zwischen Farbe und einem gestochen scharfen Schwarzweiß, ihre Bilder schwelgen in sexueller Intrige, Weiblichkeit, Romantik, Fetischismus, humorvollem Kitsch, Dekadenz und purer Lebensfreude. Ob nackt oder in Reizwäsche: Nie werden die abgelichteten Subjekte verdinglicht. Einige geben persönliche Fantasien preis, andere geben sich zurückhaltend und scheinen anzudeuten, dass wir in eine geheime Welt eingedrungen sind. Noch nie wurden Fashion und Fantasie so charmant miteinander verwoben. Die Aufnahmen entstanden in den letzten 15 Jahren, viele davon werden hier zum ersten Mal veröffentlicht.

Katies always been a daddys girl, but since she returned from college her love has become a lot more...physical. Her father is a passionate man who still has the libido of a teenager, but her mother just isnt interested. Maybe if Katie can make her father horny enough, shell have him all to herself. As Katie tempts her father at every turn, will Dale give in to his forbidden desire? ----- Excerpt ----- She took the water with a murmur of gratitude. Dad, do you know Vanessa Linares? Actually, I did know a girl named Vanessa Linares, he said, trying to be vague. His daughter glowered at him. I know when youre lying, Daddy. Oh? he said. Mmhm, she murmured from her next sip. Dont pretend. Not pretending, he told her. I just highly doubt that your Vanessa Linares and my Vanessa Linares are the same people. Well shes definitely your Vanessa Linares and shes my Social Policy professor. If Dale had been drinking the water he would have spat it out in classic cinematic fashion. Katie went on, Were really close. Sometimes we go for drinks at the bar on campus and she asked me about my last name. Katie grinned like a cheshire cat. She remembers you very fondly. Dale was pleased. You dont say. Yeah. Katie drifted off again. Her eyes kept flicking from his face to his chest as if he wasnt watching her watch him. Suddenly he understood. You and Vanessa drink together? Katie smiled into her now empty glass. Sometimes, yeah. She told me some stories about you. Dale was inexplicably nervous. And probably explicably turned on. Oh? he tried to feign nonchalance. Katie giggled at him again. I told you I know when youre lying. You want to know what she said. I know what we did. Well I know a little about that too. Dale laughed. But what she said next stopped him cold. Dad, do you and mom have sex? Katie, I dont know what- Come ON, Dad. She strode to him and let him catch her as she threw her arms over him. She was sleepy, staring up at him. Dont pretend Im too young to hear the truth. Well, he said. How did one proceed in this conversation? Well, he said again. And finally, No, Katie, your mother and I dont really have sex that much anymore. Katie stared up at him with something akin to sympathy and something very much like loneliness. Vanessa said you kind of had a reputation at college. What kind of repu- She said you had sex. A lot. Katie smirked. And that you were very...gifted. Dales head swam. He became intensely aware of his daughters breasts pressed against his chest. She continued, And I was thinking about that. I kind of couldnt stop because, um, youre my dad? But, I was thinking how I never thought of you that way. Mostly because, she looked at him intensely, I dont think I ever heard you having sex. With mom. Katie, I dont think this is appropriate. OK, she said. So you and mom dont have sex? Katie- But you used to have a lot of sex back in the day. It wasnt back in the day- And now you just dont have sex at all? Katie- That sounds like it really sucks, Dad. He stared down at his daughter. Her eyes flitted over his, over his cheeks, over his nose, his ears. Her face was flushed. Suddenly he felt her heart beating on his ribcage; he felt his own heart pounding. I love you, she said to him. I love you, too, honey. Uh huh, she breathed up at him. Im sorry you dont have sex anymore. Oh, Katie- I said it sucks. Does it suck? She pronounced the word in a very deliberate way. He started to say something but she reached down and grabbed him in a place-the exact place-that was eternally off-limits. Does it suck, Daddy?
