City Pulse

By Marie VanAssendelft

Shoes and jewelry are some of the things a girl cannot live without. In the new book “Four Inches,” women celebrities bare it all for charity’s sake with just 4-inch Jimmy Choo heels and a little bling provided by Cartier. Christina Aguilera, Rachel Hunter, Kimora Lee Simmons and Macy Gray are some of the fourteen famous names that are posing for the camera to benefit the Elton John’s Aids Foundation.

Do not confuse this project with the latest issue of Playboy, “Four Inches” is full of intimate and tasteful portraits shot by world-renown female photographers including Mary McCartney, Sam Taylor-Wood, and Ellen von Unwerth. If you are over the tried and true red carpet celebrity shots, “Four Inches” gives you another look into the glamorous and the beautiful. Inside the hardcover book you’ll find work ranging from a seductive Paris Hilton posing with her pooch to our personal favorite, partly because it is so unexpected, the Duchess of York Sarah Ferguson in fishnets and between satin sheets.

The foreword has been written by Elton John himself. 10% of the proceeds go to the Elton John AIDS Foundation which helps females in Africa that suffer from AIDS. So whether you buy “Four Inches” for the photography, celebrity curiosity or purely for the cause, it is definitely worth a glance. You cannot put a better book on your coffee table.
