Believe it or not, iconic English musician David Bowie and his porcine buddy were actually co-stars in the 1978 film Just A Gigolo! The photo above is just one of the many photos taken on the set of the filming. Why on earth he had to carry around a pig in the film? Beats me!

Watch David Bowie and his cute porcine friend in action in Just A Gigolo below:

    A Salute to the Masters: The Girl with the Scarred Face (A Tribute to Juergen Teller)

    This is a tribute to Juergen Teller, a great fashion photographer who continues to work with analogue cameras. In the 1990s he radically changed the way to make fashion photography. His models appear "soap and water", without heavy make-up, and his images seem taken like an amateur photographer. Between his nice works, there is a photos that I like so much, taken in Cuba and called "The Girl with the Broken Nose." Take a look after the jump!
