Nastassja Kinski photographed by Helmut Newton
Facing off with you this month is screen gem Nastassja Kinski, displaying her wet look. You remember Nastassja from Cat People. If you look closely, you'll see that she has lately deserted her feline predilection. In fact, she's gone and sprouted Rabbit ears. Famed femme photographer Helmut Newton's cover shot starkly documents the harey transformation. As for Kinski, we'd say she gives great face.
