These furry creatures turn up the charm when they smell that delectable dessert. Who can say no to those puppy dog eyes? So go on and give in. They'll be your best friend...

As Australia's deadliest fire sweeps across the state of Victoria in southern Australia, many Koalas have been threatened by the disaster. Above, local CFA firefighter David Tree shares his water with an injured Australian Koala at Mirboo North on Monday, Feb. 9, 2009. "It was amazing, he turned around, sat on his bum and… Continue

The state of Victoria in southern Australia has recently been hit with hundreds of bush fires during a record-breaking heatwave with temperatures well above 100°F (38°C). Unfortunately, these fires have proved to be the deadliest in Australian history, with at least 166 deaths reported so far. Most of the fires appear to have been started by lightning, however a few appear to have been arson, and are currently under investigation. Entire towns are being declared crime scenes. Twenty-four fires… Continue

Nicole Kidman and Baz Luhrmann - Moulin Rouge! and Australia.
As a big movie fan, I really appreciate dynamic chemistry between great actors and directors. Some of these actor-director teams have a history together while others hooked up just last year. In this set, Annie Leibovitz photographs 10 partnerships that helped generate more than… Continue

Elle Magazine's March 2009 feature of Jessica Alba evokes vintage Victoria's Secret catalogs. Proof that old is new again. You'd probably want to steer clear of the article, in which Jessi-ba talks about Cash Warren and losing the baby weight.…

For Vanity Magazine's March 2009 issue, renowned photographer Annie Leibovitz captured our "kaleidoscopic army of policy aces, whiz kids, and veteran advisers, all focused on the long-haul, no-drama work to which Barack has called them."
Of the 14 photos of our country's executives, these two are my favorites:
THE COMMUNICATIONS TEAM
From left: ELLEN MORAN, communications director; DAN PFEIFFER, deputy communications director; JON FAVREAU,… Continue

Though our appreciation for modern art runs deep, it's hard for us to find places to actually purchase these pieces for our home. Sure we could download something off the internet and print them away but we'd rather have high quality art from emerging artist that we can collect. Jen Bekman must have heard our cries because she's come up with a great website,… Continue

The name Yu Tsai might not be as commonplace as names like Annie Leibovitz or Steven Meisel but you can bet you've seen his work in familiar ad campaigns like Guess? or BCBG. Having shot everyone from drop dead gorgeous, Alessandra Ambrosio, to our favorite quirky singer Zooey Deschanel, Yu Tsai has also made a name for himself by working with famous models and… Continue

Katie "My Homie" Holmes in the new Spring/Summer ‘09 ad campaign for Miu Miu

The photographs have puzzled the Fashion community. Does her flame burn brightly for Scientology? O Draconian Devil, Oh Lame Saint? Are pleats back?…

The undeniable Cate Blanchett, captured by the one, the only, Annie Leibovitz for Vanity Fair's February 2009 issue. An astonishing talent, Blanchett is in my opinion, one of the greatest cinema sirens ever. I'll pretty much watch anything she does. By the way, go see The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
, you will be glad you did.
Cate is blessed with the distinguishable ability to… Continue

I wish I'd known about JPG Magazine sooner. The online photography magazine, whose content consists solely of submissions from readers - is close to joining the fallen in the Publishing dead pool.
The e-magazine and its parent company 8020 Media was founded on a seed investment from Cnet founder Halsey Minor. Although the publication failed because of a doomed, antiquated business model (based on selling print ads, ughyee) and a clunky format (downloadable PDFs,… Continue

Apparently, Vogue loves Anne Hathaway
. Granted, she sometimes calls to mind a girl Screech
(with me, Grace?) but she sure looks great in couture, as demonstrated by the January 2009 issue of Vogue. The spread was photographed by Mario Testino, a favorite of Princes William and Harry.

2008 was filled with so many dramatic twists and turns. It's certainly not easy to sum up the whole year in photos, but some of these shots show bits and pieces of what life has been like over the past 12 months. Let's all hope the new year brings more peace and happiness!
