- “Playful, revealing and sexually charged…”
- “...filled with the gorgeous and glossy images that von Unwerth has made her signature. There are gorgeously candid moments, shrieks of sheer spectacle, and of course tons of full-tilt fashion imagery.”
- “Fräulein captures perfectly von Unwerth's intimate, playful style, dancing between erotica and kitsch decadence.”
- “A stunning tome.”
- “The great quality here is that the power belongs to the subject - any fantasy projected is ultimately her own. To be allowed a glimpse into her world feels like a privilege.”

Ellen von Unwerth. Fräulein2000
They’re Not Your Girls Next Door
Fashion and fetish in a female fantasyland
Ellen von Unwerth was a supermodel before the term was invented, so she knows a thing or two about photographing beautiful women. Now one of the world’s most original and successful fashion photographers, she pays homage to the world’s most delectable females in Fräulein. This celebration of our era’s sexiest female icons includes Claudia Schiffer, Kate Moss, Vanessa Paradis, Britney Spears, Eva Mendes, Lindsay Lohan, Dita Von Teese, Adriana Lima, Carla Bruni, Eva Green, Christina Aguilera, Monica Bellucci and dozens more.
An instant collector’s item: switching effortlessly between color and immaculate black and white, von Unwerth’s photography revels in sexual intrigue, femininity, romance, fetishism, kitsch humor, decadence, and sheer joie de vivre. Whether nude or in lingerie and a dazzling smile, her subjects are never objectified. Some flaunt personal fantasies; others are guarded, suggesting that we have stumbled into a secret world. Fashion and fantasy were never so enchantingly combined. These images were shot over the last 15 years and many are previously unpublished.
Also available in Art Editions A and B, each with one of two photographic prints by Ellen von Unwerth
