Helmut Newton & Cindy Crawford On Location

Helmut Newton photographed numerous models duing his long career - some more famous than others. One person who had the pleasure of working with Newton is supermodel Cindy Crawford. Last month, the icon attended the opening gala for our Helmut Newton exhibit at the Space for Photography.

We've uncovered a vintage segment from Crawford's popular 1990s fashion show on MTV, House of Style, which shows her on location in Monte Carlo wth Newton for a Vogue magazine photoshoot. She had this to say about her experience with the legenadry photographer: "I wanted to do Helmut Newton photographs. I didn't want him to photograph me looking like the Madonna….he's one of the few people that can get away with it and it doesn't look raunchy."
