Ellen von Unwerth's knock-out collection of female sexuality, starring some of the most iconic women of our time including Claudia Schiffer, Eva Mendes, and Dita von Teese.

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 available as a standard TASCHEN edition, the famed Fräulein collection brings together some of von Unwerth's favorite images of some of the world's most iconic women, including Claudia Schiffer, Kate Moss, Vanessa Paradis, Eva Mendes, Dita von Teese, Adriana Lima, Carla Bruni, Eva Green, and Monica Bellucci.

With the ability to explore a woman's sexuality like only another woman can, von Unwerth transports us into a wonderland of femininity, playfulness, and fetish. Some subjects flaunt their fantasies with unabashed delight; others are guarded, as if we have stumbled into their secret world. Some images are bright and surreal; others are shadowy and noir. Throughout, von Unwerth celebrates the model's ownership of her sexuality and luxuriant joie de vivre.
