Three new photos of Carolyn Farina

I haven’t seen these photographs before. I have written about Carolyn Farina a few times on this blog (I admit to having a “screen crush” on her). These pictures were presumably taken when Metropolitan (1990) was being released. Miss Farina (the short-haired brunette) was about 26 years old.




This remains my favourite shot of her, from about the same time.

Melissa Rodwell photographs fashion model Milan.

“I met Milan a few years ago while I was shooting in LA for a minute. I met her on a casting for various editorials I was shooting. Her lithe 5’10” body is incredible and while she wasn’t the perfect fit for my upcoming shoots, I knew I had to at the very least test with her. So that’s what I did.”

Here Beauty and Function Meet

[A woman wrote on Facebook: ” … artistically,
a woman’s shoulders are one of the most
beautiful sights.”]


Here beauty and function meet,
truly, high on a woman’s
body; shoulders like an elegant
span of bridge carrying a double
load, perhaps supported by a bra;
and sometimes a man can lend
a hand, like a good engineer;
and then use his other hand
to prop her thighs apart, just so.
