From Our Editors
If it's quirky, outrageous, risqué, campy and totally inappropriate for your grandmother's eyes - then it's gotta be an original David LaChappelle. A high-profile photographer who has snapped the images of some of Hollywood's hottest stars, LaChapelle treats his viewing audience to much more of the same - only better - in Hotel LaChapelle. Inside you'll find photos depicting huge names in the business in compromising positions, fantastical scenarios and less-than-mainstream situations, including Uma Thurman, Leonardo DiCaprio and Madonna. You don't have to be a photography enthusiast to appreciate the humour and artistic quality of the images in this fabulous collection.
