What do Guy Bourdin's girls think? Do they actually think? What is fascinating about Bourdin's pictures (apart from the bright precious stone-like colours, so audacios and sensual) is the fact that the models have the look of nearly alive mannequins. A subtle paradox specially in the fashion world where Bourdin did most of his work (in collaboration whith french shoe brand Charles Jourdan). These images are of course erotic; not just bold provocation, but a very personal view on sexyness. Pain and pleasure don't seem to matter much in a world where reality and the artificial live together, and in which Bourdin explores the problems and insecurities of women in their relationships: power, desire, love and fetish obnubilate their minds. Is it Bourdin's way of criticizing the fashion world?
