Eva Herzigova From Bettie to Marilyn
by Sad Man’s Tongue
No one can deny the classic images of Bettie Page and Marilyn Monroe as culture icons. These photos of Czech super model Eva Herzigova taken by photographer Ellen Von Unwerth in the 1990s have also become a classic. Paying homage to the two greats Page and Monroe Eva slips into the role as Ellen Von Unwerth brings out the mystique of the icons they pay homage to.
Eva is noted as having been the first model for the Wonder Bra campaign and also having married Tico Torres, the drummer from Bon Jovi, which ended in divorce two years later. Today she lives in Turin, Italy and is happily married with three children.
While beauty eventually fades the photos and photography of Ellen Von Unwerth do not. This acclaimed photographer is still at it recently doing a shoot with David Bowie and Kate Moss for Men’s Daily.
