Discussion on Inspiration Source for Louis Vuitton Ad with Keith Richards: Lillian Hellman for Blackglama {The Readers Talk Back} {Beauty Notes}

lillian-hellman-blackglama.jpgReader Carole McIntyre left an interesting comment about a possible source of inspiration for the 2008 Louis Vuitton ad with Keith Richards, who by the way just published his (juicy) autobiography, Life. The picture of Lillian Hellman for the Blackglama ad is still so unconventional after all these years that I thought it would be enjoyed by all and here it is above.
