This book is one of David LaChappelle's collections of photo shoots. It includes bold poses and more colors than you can ever imagine. Perhaps, this book featured LaChappele's earliest efforts, as one can see Leonardo diCaprio posed in his teenage years (waaaay before Titanic), and even some of the casts of Beverly Hills 90210 the series posing for his lenses. You know, judging from their era of 15 minutes of fame, one can easily guess the time when this book was published originally.

This photography book is SO great! It has hilarious and sometimes creepy pictures of celebrities and just interesting looking people in shocking, funny and sometimes scary back drops. Extremely entertaining coffee table book:)

Sexy crazy and different. FYI, great documentary on this photographer on Ovation, if you get a chance to catch it.

S/A review for Hotel La Chappelle. No objectivity due to sister's involvement. Every photo is a world unto it's own.
