Ellen von Unwerth Shoots a Cabaret Madame Figaro December 2013

The Madame Figaro December 2013 issue steps back in time to mimic the old-style theatrics of the cabaret mixed with a sensual boudoir vibe. Ellen von Unwerth captures Emma Stern Nielsen and Eva Doll as they lounge in glamorous, high-waisted lingerie, top hats, blunt bobs and opulent jewelry.

Any history-lover will enjoy the classic cabaret stylings of this spread. In fact, it might inspire some viewers to hit an after-hours joint for a little taboo entertainment themselves. Overall, the editorial is imbued with a nostalgic sense of the past as well as a provocative tension that toes the line between romantic sensuality and overt sexuality. The performative aspect is also front row and center, as Nielsen and Doll make a pair of sultry cabaret stunners, complete with doe-eyes and red lips.
