Chiara Bianchino, like so many Italian beauties, has a name that sounds melodic to say aloud. When you say it out loud, it sounds like you're ordering a very expensive wine from a very snooty sommelier. Like picture the "You're Abe Froman" guy from Ferris Bueller waiting for your selection and you look him dead in the eyes and say, "Chiara Bianchino!" and then he throws up that half smile that says, "The day is yours, good sir."
Man, is there anything sexier in the world than black and white photography? I know it's used to death these days but that's because a lot of these hack photographers have figured out that their skeezy nudes look artful when you shoot them in black and white. Even still, when a true beauty like Chiara comes along, it's like getting that sweet, sweet wheat away from that nasty ol' chaff.
So stick it to a snooty sommelier this weekend in honor of Chiara Bianchino. Those assholes have got it coming, and we should be the ones to sock it to 'em. Chiara is a timeless beauty in a timeless set of photographs that will age like wine fine enough to make that somm splooge in his BVDs.
