More Beautiful Women

Launched on 13 June 2002

An explicit homage to Andy Warhol’s Thirteen Most Beautiful Women (1964) screen tests, Nick Knight’s film project More Beautiful Women evolved out of an experiment conducted during a commission to photograph the most famous fashion models of the twentieth century for the Millennium issue of British Vogue. Models, from now retired icons such as Marisa Berenson, Pilar Crespi, Marie Helvin, Dorian Leigh Parker, Twiggy, and Penelope Tree to the most famous contemporary names - Kate, Gisele, Claudia, Linda, Naomi - were asked to stand in front of the video camera for two minutes until told to stop. The results are varied and sometimes challenging.
