The legendary fashion and celebrity photographer Roxanne Lowit found her calling in the late ‘70s when her friend, the late fashion illustrator Antonio Lopez, gave her an Instamatic 110 camera. 

There were just so many things that were amazing, that I was lucky enough to walk through those different worlds,” said Lowit. “It was incredible that I photographed them.” - W

Is not the most erotic portion of a body where the garment gapes? …It is this flash itself which seduces.

Roland Barthes

For the record, I support Miley Cyrus’ style evolution and her penchant for shade, but she requires an education on “sexiness” as it relates to performance and her onstage persona. There are so many examples of recording artists executing effortless “sexy.” There’s this. And this. And this. And this.

Those artists understand both the capabilities and the limitations of their natural movement and they dance accordingly. And more importantly, as Cher stated rather plainly, Miley’s performance just wasn’t good. She could have slapped a newborn while smoking a crack pipe and if the performance was stellar, no one would have cared. In fact, we would have all lined up to slap a child in the name of Miley awesome.

But it wasn’t.

So we cringed.

"The greatest performers, like Madonna in a canonical video such as “Vogue,” know how to use suggestion and mystery to project the magic of sexual allure. Miley, go back to school!" - TIME

Unless, of course, her 2013 VMA performance was meant to be playfully ironic; tauntingly kitsch. Or if she truly loves trap music, but just can’t seem to dance to the rhythm of the beat… then, well, carry on Miley. Carry on.
