Guy Bourdin (1928-1991) was an obsessed man. And that is to put it slightly. Working for Vogue, he made his heavily made-up models twist to uncomfortable positions in surreal, absurd, gloomy images. He loved red-haired women - who reminded him of his long-lost mother. His estranged wife committed suicide by hanging herself.(http://www.phinnweb.org/livingroom/ILikeToWatch/guybourdin/)
Madonna was inspired by him too, someone even said that she copied his style for her HOLLYWOOD video
and I see some similarities in this Stella McCartney's fashion spot.
