An integral element of Vivienne Westwood's Spring/ Summer 2009 advertising campaign, Juergen Teller's Election Day features an unlikely collaboration between the doyenne of British street style, Baywatch star Pamela Anderson and Westwood's former assistant/current husband Andreas Kronthaler. Employing Teller's signature theatrical mis-en-scene, these images--shot on location in Los Angeles--include Vivienne and Andreas' friends, members of the band Queens of the Stone Age. Escaping all efforts at narrative or categorization, the volume features shots of the protagonists in a golf buggy, Anderson reading Plato's Republic with a nipple visible through sheer fabric, Westwood and Anderson frolicking in clothes baskets at a launderette and the two beaming in front of a television announcing Barack Obama's imminent victory.
