Random hearts: Ellen Von Unwerth!!! NSFW


If the Victoria's Secret catalogue is really for the men...


Then Ellen Von Unwerth's photgraphs are for the ladies...



It's kinda like Coco de Mer (holes in the panties) vs. Agent Provocateur (sexy lacy panties).


Yes, the boys will for sure think it's "hot" (Ellen's photographs) but only the ladies will truly get the pure sensuality of her photographs.
She mixes fashion with sex and the outcome is nothing short of vintage- provocative- groundbreaking gorgeousness.



Ellen's life created the perfect pathway for her stunning and erotic art.

Born in 1954 she and her active imagination longed to be part of the circus. As soon as she graduated high school, she became an assistant and performed magic acts and stunts in the local circus. (Now we know where she gets a lot of her vidid imagery)



At age 19/20 a photographer stopped her on the street and asked if she wanted to be a model...being the open spirit she was she moved to Paris and became very successful.


She soon realized that modeling lacked freedom..so she picked up a camera (a gift from her BF)...took pics of her fellow models on a job in Africa and the rest is clearly history.



Ellen made her name a household one when she shot model, Claudia Schiffer for Guess Jeans and turned her into a Supermodel.

You know you all tried to recreate this photograph in the mirror with your moms lingerie! No? Just us....hmmmmm

Hot alert!!!! A girl in undies and a tank..done and done...

The colors in this photo are stunning!


Hello amazing photograph.!!!!!!

Only Ellen can make coffee (and an ad) this sexy! If we drink LaVazza will we look like this???

Suuuper obsessed with this fashion editorial! Looooove the masks and the opposing clothes against the beachy sky. Uggghhhh if only Miss Me and I were super tall!

Another iconic pic by EVU of a supermodel. Here is Naomi Campbell looking ridic!

The way Ellen does santa...
Maybe Anna was naughty!

Oh Christie T....we super heart thee!
In heartville with the '60s mood behind this beautiful photograph of CT in Paris....soooo good!!!


Oh nothing...that's just Madonna (before all the weird face stuff when she was younger)
Only Ellen can make Madonna look sexy and sensual without looking desperate and slutty...


Dear God...make me a bird...so I can fly far...far far away...and never have to see this amazing fashion pic of Shalom Harlow (obsession!!!) It's perfection!!!

EVU talent doesn't stop at photographs...she has been known to direct advertisements, fashion videos and commericals....

Look at this cute video for Erin Featherson with the beautiful Kirsten Dunst that Ellen Von Unwerth directed...




She has numerous books out...these are our 4 faves...

Hot hot would her book Wicked look on your table???
We loooove this book...so sexy! Couples...enough said

Revenge is Ellen's pure sexy side. It's Ellen in a nutshell...S&M meets fashion and sensual, gorgeous women...
For her newest (and most expensive book) EVU's Fraulein is just that...
A gorgeous...unbelievably sexy book filled with stunning photos of 15 years of her ridiculous and very deserved career of shooting the worlds most delicious women...
And at 482 pages it's less than $2 a page ;) Hee heeee....


While many try to recreate and even copy Miss VU, they simply can not produce and wrangle her erotic sensuality.
There are a few women that while they have their own style...their love of a woman's sexiness is very much in line with the great EVU.
One such woman is Petra Van Raaij.



So beautiful! Maybe we are from the same planet where we think all women are as sexy as cats!

A certain stupidly stunning woman named Gwen Stefani

used Ellen's images for inspiration when creating the hair and makeup looks for her suuuper good Fall 2010 fashion line for L.A.M.B.


We are crazy obsessed with this collection and the looks...gonna copy it today!!!

Thank you Ellen for making women as gorgeous and sensual as they really are...thank you for inspiring us to use what we were born with for good not evil ;)

xoxo things we heart
