Starring iconic supermodel Jessica Stam, an abstract, monochrome narrative unfolds that celebrates empowered femininity with a Futurist touch. Striding forward through radial smoke and spotlights, a sculptural, mirrored chamber descends to envelop Stam in a grid of light. Piercing laser beams map the svelte contours of her white MUGLER Paris dress, as she leaves her static shadow behind to meet her mirror image in black. This pivotal moment of light and dark represents the sophisticated contrasts of MUGLER’s modern muse.
ALL WOMEN ARE DAUGHTERS, ALL MEN ARE SONS
Lanvin’s icon of mother and daughter conjures up so many dramatic family possibilities.
Each image portrays that unspoken understanding.
In the end, all women are daughters, all men are sons.

I was curious about video, and how to edit it, so I did this little piece. I enjoyed it; Learned a lot from it; And thought I share it with you. You'll notice some dirt on the lens, which I didn't catch while shooting, but which I ended up liking, as it gave the film depth, and matched the feel of it all. I did decide to slow the motion intentionally though, and my purpose there was to allow us to enjoy the beauty of the model, which many moving images don't give us a chance to (tv commercials fail at this often).... That's all the commentary I have; but am curious to do more, and delve deeper. Feel free to comment or critique—I left the comment section open, or you're welcome to email me.
Cyrus submitted her short film, “Tongue Tied” — which depicts the almost-nude “Wrecking Ball” singer in bondage gear and sexually suggestive poses — to the NYC Porn Film Festival, which begins in Bushwick on Feb. 27.
It’s not pure pornography — the video has no sex, and though she writhes around in her underwear, she keeps her nipples covered. But it’s full of bondage imagery: Cyrus dons a blindfold, has her legs constrained by straps and is tied to a chair with only black tape covering her nipples. It’s a touch “Fifty Shades” with a pinch of Madonna’s “Justify My Love” video.
