Violence is sexy

These lovely representations of violence against women are from a fashion photo shoot on America's Next Top Model (you know, with Tyra Banks, the self-empowered, superwoman, lingerie model). They - along with the comments made by the judges about the photos are listed here. Some of my favorites:

Guest Judge Photographer Mike Rosenthal: Even though she doesn't look dead, I think she still came up with a great picture.

Nigel: The look on your face is just extraordinary. Very beautiful and dead.

Miss J: What's great about this is that you can also look beautiful in death.

Nigel: It's a great shot. Death becomes you, young lady.

Miss J: These are broken-down dolls. These are busted up, broken-down dolls, marionettes.
