    So you all must be familiar with NYC's Amanda Lepore....she does excellent work with LaChapelle in this MAC Cosmetics ad, priceless icon_biggrin.gif :

    David LaChapelle's esthetic is unmistakable and my all time favorite...he is a photographer and video/commercial/film director who works in the fields of fashion, advertising, and fine art photography, and is noted for his surreal, unique and often humorous style. Check him out at :

    Rawrly saidAmanda is a good friend and I love this video. It premiered at a runway show and without giving too much away, at the end she burst through the projection screen and ran down the runway in the exact same state she is at the end of the video.


    oh wow that must have been quiet the sight LOL ...was it for Heatherette ? Would you know what season/yr ?

    Disgusting, as is his photography. I am not a fan of this type of art. Cheap and easy.

    I love adore Amanda Lepore. She's fan-fucking-tastic. LaChapelle couldn't have a better muse.

    She's much more stunning in person. There's nothing more surreal than leaving the hotel she lives in with her in the last of sunlight while she's wearing pumps, stockings, garters and lingerie as outerwear and having children stare at her in bewilderment, moms look pissed and dads salivate while they are checking in.


    Poor kids, what a traumatic experience that must be.

    Was she a man before?

    Never a "man" but born male, yes. Amanda started living full time as female in her early teens and had sex reassignment surgery at 17.


    I find pretty hard to think of her as ever being male. Like you said, the outside was changed to match the inside. She's just so fantastically over the top and truly one of a kind. Every time I see her in print or video she just makes me grin uncontrollably from ear to ear.

    Amanda Lepore made a club appearence that I went to. Eventually her top came off but of corse! It's Amanda Lepore! haha She was really nice and personable, after her preformance she danced a bit with clubgoers and signed my shoulder and one of my glowsticks.

    I love it because it's not the naked woman that makes the average viewer uncomfortable, but that fact that the naked woman was clearly not born with the parts she flaunts.

    LOL her body, and his photography, is neither. You may not appreciate it or like it which is valid, but it is NOT cheap and it is NOT easy.

    She has that effect on me too. Too much glee for any negativity.

    Have you heard her voice? Since she's not dominican, she must have been a man.

    Rawrly saidThe preview for "Marilyn" (full video coming soon):



    she looks like they used everything that was left over from joan rivers face surgery and added it to hers and then she had a stroke.
