The woman was framed: Jean-Paul Goude, Cornel Lucas, Ormond Gigli #flashback

 Ormond Gigli "Models in the windows"

Cornel Lucas "Models on scaffolding"

Jean-Paul Goude "Egoiste"

One reminded me of the other, the other reminded me of the third. Three brilliant artists knowing how to frame women within context - the windows of a building about to be torn (Gigli), scaffolding (Lucas), or a replica of a famous hotel (Goude). Disturbing fact: At the end of the Egoiste commercial, the same model of Rolls Royce featured in the Gigli photo passes by in front of the hotel... Could this be a tribute from Goude to Gigli?
