Photographer: Patrick Demarchelier
Style: Studio portraiture–models and celebs, alike–may be his claim to fame (although The Devil Wears Prada line “Get me Demarchelier” is a close conteder), but it’s the focus on the fashion that makes Demarchelier so important. Pared down shots of a model against a neutral backdrop force one’s attention on the clothing, which is probably why Demarchelier is chosen so often to photograph haute couture.
