Celebrities have photoshoots all the time. We see them in magazines, online, on the billboards, advertising campaigns and movie posters, and they’re all nice. But there’s a few that stand out. These photoshoots are the ones that made us pause and stare. Either because of the fashion choices, the meaning behind the photograph or the person in the photo. And you know it’s truly a piece of art if it makes you pause and think and feel things. So take a look at these 9 most memorable photoshoots and see if you feel the same way.
1. Kim Kardashian With North as Jackie Kennedy by Steven Klein for Interview
This photoshoot definitely raised some racial debates, but we’re not here to judge. We’re here to appreciate the art, and this photoshoot is truly iconic. Everything is thought through to the last detail and it truly looks like Kim and her daughter went back in time. The outfits, the set, hair and makeup, everything is on point.
2. Cameron Diaz in Pretty Circus Woman by Annie Leibovitz
Any photoshoot Annie Leibovitz does is incredible in its own way, but this particular one was circus themed and the shots with Cameron Diaz caught our attention. Perhaps it’s the unusual set and costume, but mostly it’s a very unusual role for Cameron. She almost doesn’t look like herself, like she transformed completely.
3. Game of Thrones by Peggy Sirota for Rolling Stone
You have to google this photoshoot of the Game of Thrones cast by Peggy Sirota, or you now, just find this issue of Rolling Stone. All of the pictures were incredible but of course it’s the one on the right that caught everyone’s attention and made everyone lose their mind.
4. Rihanna by Chen Man for Harper’s Bazaar China
Rihanna is always on top of her game and it seems like she slays no matter what she wears. This photoshoot would’ve been so extra if it was anyone else dressed like this, but since it’s Rihanna she looks like she belongs there.
5. Mila Kunis by Craig McDean for Interview
This is a very cool and edgy photo shoot with Mila Kunis, and ever since it came out, these pictures have been the most used pictures of Mila we’ve ever seen. People just can’t help it, she looks incredible on these photos.
6. Rooney Mara by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott for Vogue US
Rooney Mara became known for her unusual style and interesting features when she starred in the movie “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo”. But photographer Marcus Piggott managed to incorporate her unique looks with very traditionally feminine outfits and settings and the result is just mesmerizing.
7. Johnny Depp by Annie Leibovitz for Vanity Fair
Johnny Depp doesn’t even look like this anymore. Years have gone by, his style changed a little bit, his looks changed too, he grew older and his hairstyle isn’t the same. And yet, whenever you think of Johnny Depp you imagine him the way he looks in this photoshoot. That’s the magic of Annie Leibovitz and her photoshoot.
8. Robert Pattinson by Caitlin Cronenberg for L’Uomo Vogue
Robert Pattinson has spent quite some time trying to get as far away as possible from his role in Twilight movies, and we think this photoshoot proves that. Look at how different he looks, so rugged, so gorgeous, so wild. We love it.
9. Chris Colfer for Mr. Porter Magazine
This Chris Colfer photoshoot proves that you don’t need much to make incredible photos. A classic suit, a black and white camera and that’s it. The person in front of the camera, their best features and even their personality comes out front and center once you get rid of all the glitz and glamour. This photoshoot is another example of why black and white photography is classic and will never go out of style.
