A little bad taste : Alyson Hannigan played the teenager at 27th

Alyson Hannigan posed two times for FHM, in February 2001 and in June 2003, with the same photographer Stephen Danelian.

As you'll see it, the teenager series is particularly appealing and uplifting. Maybe she was obliged to promote a movie, maybe she wanted... Anyway, to see the best, we need to see the worst. Strangely, except in a sex-tape, she never posed nude what deserves a huge bravo.

She was 27, far from a teenager.

A little more good series, she was 29

A French monument : Studio Harcourt

Since 1934, Studio Harcourt shoots the greatest artists of the planet with an inimitable style which makes its so remarkable signature :

« In France, one is not an actor if one hasn't been photographed by the Studio Harcourt » wrote philosopher Roland Barthes in 1957.

" The Studio Harcourt was founded in Paris in 1934, by the press moguls the Lacroix brothers and by Cosette Harcourt, who contributed her strong background in photography having worked at the Manuel's brothers famous studio.

In its early days the Studio's main activity was to fulfil the needs of the press. Yet, its remarkable signature style soon drew the most acclaimed and talented artists.

As early as 1938, the Studio became a must : writers, singers, comedians, sportsmen, composers, dansers and political figures all rushed to the studio.

Stars such as Marlène Dietrich, Salvador Dali, Jean Cocteau or Marcel Serdan were among those who were immortalized by the studio... along with many discerning clients.

The Harcourt esthetic is timeless and its magical signature has proven to be of mythical dimension thanks to its unique, immediately recognisable, know-how and lighting effects inspired by movie sets.

Harcourt's archives of 5 million prints, portraying more than 1500 celebrities and over 500 000 people, from 1934 to 1991 was passed over to the « Reunion des Musées Nationaux » for the French Ministry of Culture.

For over 70 years, portraits by Harcourt have been a part of the collective memory and have become an institution.

The Studio is now located one block from avenue Montaigne in a town house off the "golden triangle", on the Right Bank of the capital of photography.

The Studio welcomes celebrities and other discerning clients who seek a unique, glamorous and timeless image of themselves, between dream and reality."

Brigitte Bardot, the scandal

We have to understand her. 

She was young, she was hungry, waiting to play in the cruel and harassing movie world. She was obliged to do these photographs without any doubt that show us the worst of the 60'. We can easily imagine what a starlet must do to realize her Dream, this and more to succeed.
