Beauty Spots Chanel ...

In Greek mythology, the gods were said to be jealous of those who looked too perfect and hence created a small dark mark on their faces, just to disturb their perfection. Here, AnOther uncovers the hidden meanings behind the positioning of natural beauty spots...
Right eyebrow... symbolises a highly active and successful life.
Corner of the eye... indicates an honest, reliable and forthright person.
Nose... indicates a person who will be a sincere friend and a hard-working individual.
Cheek (either)... indicates a serious and studious person who has no interest in material pleasures.
Chin... indicative of people who are affectionate and caring. These people adapt easily to any situation. They love travelling and respect the law of the land. They are also dedicated and conscientious workers and willingly accept responsibilities.
Lips... indicative of people who always aspire to get ahead in life.

Charlotte Rampling Naked in the Louvre

On The Road With Juergen Teller
For over a year, Teller sent in photographs for his column in  Another Magazine accompanied by short descriptive texts – blunt, some of them funny, some poignant, others controversial – which gave new dimensions...
Juergen on Late Night and Naked in the Louvre... " After I exhibited this picture, a lot of journalists and critics kept asking me: what is the motivation and reason to shoot Raquel Zimmerman and Charlotte Rampling naked in the Louvre? Having the Louvre to yourself, with Charlotte naked in front of the Mona Lisa – that's enough for me."
