Uma Thurman - Ellie Kokkinou

Uma Thurman was photographed by Annie Leibovitz for the cover of Vogue November 2003.
I find that the photo of Ellie Kokkinou was inspired by the photo of Uma Thurman. Both wearing evening gowns while balancing on a skyscraper! Same concept.

Pamela Anderson - Cleo Liapi

Pamela Anderson was photographed by celebrity photographer Tony Duran for Stuff Magazine in 2001.
Cleo Liapi was in the the reality show Big Brother 2 (Greece) in 2002. So the photos we see of her must have been photographed after the show as she was an unkown! I don't need to point out the similarities, I think they are obvious!

Monica Bellucci - Korina Stergiadou

Monica Bellucci was photographed by Fabrizio Ferri for Esquire February 2001.
She is covered in 36 ounces of Iranian Caviar and not chocolate chips as I thought!

Another Greek model... another copy! This greek model's name as I now discovered is Zoe Stasinou.

Angie Dickinson - Britney Spears - Gogo Mastrokosta - Victoria's Secret Models

Esquire 60 Years of Women We Love
Frank Bez is the photographer who captured Angie Dickinson (Policewoman) in this now iconic image. The original photgraph dates back to 1966 but was the cover of Esquire in 1993. In the 1966 photo Angie Dickinson is wearing a powder blue sweater and was photographed infront of a black background. When the photo was reused for the 1993 issue the film had faded into a burgundy and white, which eventually became the now-utilized maroon and cream.

Esquire 70 Years of Women We Love
Esquire later re-created the shot with Britney Spears captured by James White in November 2003.
Again one month later Gogo Mastrokosta is featured on the cover of Esquire Greece in an exact copy of Britney's cover right down to the finest detail of her hair!

Esquire 75 Years of Women
Esquire and James White re-created the shot with Victoria's Secrets Models for the February 2008 issue.

Gisele Bundchen - Maro Litra

This is another photograph of Gisele by Inez Van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin for GQ.
It looks like they liked the photoshoot so much they saved a pose for Maro Litra for Nitro. Yes striped socks and black lingerie! They even mimicked the sheet... Wow great ideas again!

Gisele Bundchen - Ria Antoniou

Gisele Bunchen photographed for the July issue of GQ in 2008 by Inez Van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin. The photo of Ria Antoniou says it all... copy paste three months later!

Gisele Bundchen - Despoina Vandi

Gisele Bundchen was photographed by David LaChapelle in 2000. This photograph also graced the cover of the December issue of Arena magazine. Three years later the photograph is copied for the September issue of Nitro magazine and in Gisele's place, Greek singer Despoina Vandi steps in!

I love David LaChapelle's photographs. I adore the way he photographs celebrities, and he has photographed countless! Not only is he a photographer he is also a video/commercial/film director who works in the fields of fashion, advertising, and fine art photography. David LaChapelle is noted for his surreal, unique and often humorous style.
