Le printemps arrive à son rythme, les premiers beaux jours font leur apparition, les jupes raccourcissent et les collants disparaissent. Soudain, la robe printanière de cette jolie demoiselle est soulevée par un coup de vent providentiel…
Et, inutile de le nier, le regard dévie et l’esprit rêve. Rassurez-vous, vous n’êtes pas le premier. En 1955, Billy Wilder cristallisait ce moment magique dans une vie d’homme quand, sur le tournage du film Sept ans de réflexion, la robe blanche de Marilyn Monroe s’envolait au dessus d’une bouche de métro tandis que l’actrice s’exclame « Isn’t it delicious ? » (« N’est-ce pas délicieux ? »), créant ainsi l’une des scènes les plus mythiques du cinéma.
Et les artistes, qui sont des hommes (ou des femmes) comme les autres, ne sont pas les derniers à jouer avec ce fantasme vieux comme le monde.
Nos amis d’Artsper vous ont préparé une sélection de 10 œuvres de photographes célèbres ou au talent prometteur afin de vous en faire profiter !

The couple both came dressed as skeletons, complete with spooky makeup, but the Modern Family star’s sexy costume left little to the imagination. A black leotard adorned with a skeleton graphic hugged her curves, which she paired with black fishnets and thigh-high platform boots.
The actress paired the look with a plush skeleton unicorn purse, which she showed off on Snapchat.
Winter, who just started attending classes at UCLA, has been dating Meaden for just under a year. The happy couple have been getting into the Halloween spirit, most recently at Knott’s Scary Farm, where they were spotted sharing a few kisses.
In May, the star admitted to Jimmy Kimmel that she and Meaden are living together, also confessing that he does most of the cooking.
“My boyfriend and I live together, and he cooks. I can’t cook at all,” Winter told Kimmel. “He takes care of all that handy stuff, he’s great, he does all that. I can bake a pie occasionally. Pumpkin and apple, I baked those two the other day. They were edible.”
Watch below for more on the couple, including how the actress celebrated Meaden’s 30th birthday.http://bcove.me/bkpfgnuv
Myanmar/Burma has a bit of history with beauty queens.
In the ’60s, one of the first Miss Burmas fled with her crown into the jungle to lead an opposition group against Burmese expansionism. Back in 2012, Myanmar’s first international beauty queen absconded with her $100,000 crown. Now we have 19-year-old aspiring model Shwe Eain Si, who had won “Miss Grand Myanmar” (a consolation prize title for whomever finishes in 2ndplace at the Miss Universe Myanmar competition), being stripped of her title.
Miss Grand Myanmar gets to participate in a Thai competition with the mission statement “create peace and stop war”. Shwe Eain Si posted a rather graphic and controversial video on her Facebook page concerning the goings-on in the ravaged Rakhine State on the western coast of Myanmar, where the Rohingya people, who are mostly Muslim, are oppressed by the Buddhist majority. Indeed, the United Nations has labelled the military crackdown in Rakhine state a “textbook example of ethnic cleansing”. Her video blamed the unrest on the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA), and a global conspiracy against Myanmar.
Now, Miss Universe Myanmar is entirely a Burmese organisation licenced by the Ministry of Health and Sports, and usually when we hear about this kind of thing, it’s because someone went counter to the official government line. But Shwe Eain Si had perfectly towed that line so what gives? It seems the answer may be far more pedestrian. The director of Miss Universe Myanmar deemed Shwe Eain Si had an attitude unworthy of the title, as well as accusing her of not providing the necessary documentation and certificates required, and not acting professionally before the trip to Vietnam, site of the final contest. She was also accused of using “language inappropriate for a ‘Miss’”, including using the Burmese F–word which she denied. In addition to all that, while at an event in the Philippines she embarrassed the pageant director and her husband in front of a driver, and pointed out mistakes in the Miss Universe Myanmar promotional material.
So it appears that in a country where young people are expected to know their place, the UK-educated Shwe Eain Si may have come off as a bit too cocky for her own good. As the director stated, “As national director [of Miss Universe Myanmar], I have the authority to choose who represents Myanmar and who doesn’t”. One thing they can’t take away from Shwe Eain Si are her good looks (and they are very good), and so she has been bestowed the far more prestigious title of Asian Siren and welcomed into the Hallowed Halls.
The wood–man tells us that the attractive Luchino (AKA Luchiino, Rukino Fujisaki) has had a fairly long career, starting as an ero- cosplayer, then model and onto actress in short films and obscure movies, as well as a stab at singing. Despite all of that she doesn’t seem to get much love. Even my old friend bobx deems her worthy of only 10 pictures, and not particularly good ones at that (a quick hop to the forum and Woody will show you a few pics). Almost 40 now this protégé (and look-alike) of Liniku Ushijima seems destined to never make it to the top of the hill. In his chivalry, Woody has come to her aid and such gallantry shan’t be ignored. Lucchino, please accept our invitation to enter the Hallowed Halls.
Miyako is another gravure idol who has made the great leap to AV.
I have to say that first photo should replace the Mona Lisa in the Louvre. Magnificent. Miyako is another in a crop of Japanese idols who are vertically challenged, but who make up for it horizontally—probably due to contractual stipulations, Miyako’s new name, as she makes the move to AV, is Ema Yumekawa, and her first offering appeared April 1. I believe it’s her only AV offering to date.
