Pregnant model Tiah Eckhardt hopes just fashion delivers


Claire Davies, STM fashion editor
September 05, 2009 06:00pm

THERE'S always more than one surprise at a Wheels & Dollbaby show, but designer Melanie Greensmith is hoping there'll be none tonight.
Greensmith's best friend and face of the popular label, Tiah Eckhardt, is nearly eight months pregnant.

The 23-year-old model will be seated front row, but said ``most of my friends who have had babies have had them early, so I'm feeling a little nervous.

``I'm shopping for my hospital bag right now just in case. But I wonder what Rockingham hospital will think of my Agent Provocateur nightie and fluffy pom-pom slippers.''

Eckhardt will be taking her mother to the big show. ``Mum's coming and the hospital bag will be packed just in case. She is my constant companion at the moment,'' she said.

Eckhardt said she's expecting a baby girl, but remained tight-lipped about the name she had chosen.

Not even pregnancy can stop the bubbly redhead. She's just returned from shooting a lingerie campaign in Sydney.

``My agency wants me back to work as soon as possible,'' she said. ``Although I've been doing bits and pieces, it's just not a priority. You can't make yourself focus on something when you're thinking about something far more important.''

Also in the front row will be band members from Eskimo Joe and Gyroscope, socialite Rhonda Wyllie, and footballer Ben Cousins.

Award-winning WA actress Jessica Marais has flown in for the event, and will be making a catwalk appearance (see STM for more).

Greensmith's partner, Divinyls guitarist Mark McEntee, will be playing a set to warm the crowd up.

``He's been rehearsing in the living room -- it's going to be amazing,'' she said.

This is the third parade produced by Greensmith in partnership with the Perth Fashion Festival. The first two were sold out.

``I guess a big show is what my label is all about -- rock and roll, glamour, celebrities, and beautiful girls,'' she said.

Greensmith will be showcasing the entire Wheels & Dollbaby range -- over 80 pieces -- including the latest Seduction de Jour range.

There will be touches of Parisian-chic -- sequin jackets and high-waisted knickers in midnight blue, and embroidered satin dresses -- and plenty of classic Dollbaby leopard print.

Greensmith will take her bow in a leopard-print catsuit, made exclusively for the finale.

Bringing Sexy Back

Iíve always said itís about context. That fine line between sexy and submissive. I often wish I had the talent to take a beautiful photograph as much as I wish I could play an instrument flawlessly. Especially when I know so many gorgeous girls, inside and out, of whom Iíve been privileged to see at their absolute sexiest- relaxed, confident, aware, unaware... I could make a million dollars if I could capture them like that. But alas, technology and I do not have a good relationship and even when we try we just donít seem to co-operate or produce anything productive. I am fortunate that I do however, feel like Iíve been blessed with an eye that understands images, whether I am creating them or not. If youíre talking photographs of a naked girl, be it the subjects themselves or the critics of the final product, I really donít get it at how often they donít 'get it'. So Iím going to break it down. From the point of view of a female, of a subject, of a fan.

As with all art, whatever the medium, look at it and think about how it makes you feel. Whether itís in a porno mag or The Louvre. Figure out what it is then ask yourself why (and this is where you need a brain I guess). Especially as a potential subject unless you want to be as disposable as the paper youíre printed on. As a woman when you look at that picture of a girl, open mouthed, body tensed, clothes partially removed, looking desperately at a camera, does that make you feel sexy? Does it make you feel good about yourself? Iím thinking no. This is an image created to simulate the feeling, in a male viewer, that the subject wants him. This is you fitting a mould. This is you replaceable, interchangeable, and ultimately unmemorable. And this is why you have to look harder...

I feel nothing when I look at pictures like this. When the person in the photo is performing, if you will, a routine for the person taking it, or looking at it later. Such a method also more subtly seems to rape the body of any elegance or grace. probably because both come with control and when that is lost, no matter how unconsciously, it is visible in the muscles. My friend Emma and I were discussing this in reference to someone we know being referred to as ďMutt-hotĒ, where one has the right build or measurements but lacks so much class and self-respect it is evident in the way the bodyís owner holds it, and why it (temporarily) attracts men to see their desperation for approval. Women see this almost straight away and find it unnattractive, demeaning, men can at least find it a turn-on for 7 minutes (ahem) but of course, will never respect it. An infatuation beyond the time it takes to get a get a boner and get off, combined with an image that tempers control with coquettishness is what makes an icon. One admired by men and women at that.

I have no problem with nudity, or blatant sexuality. Obviously. I do however have a problem with how itís presented and with whom the power lies. Contrary to popular belief my own lack of modesty lies in a long-existing nonchalance in regards to my body and not uncontrollable exhibitionism. Though however casual I have been, I have never been careless. There is a reason I am comfortable being naked in photographs or portraying a Ďsexyí image (apart from the fact if you were to investigate more closely, 90% of the time the photographers have been gay, married or women). I understand the work, the person producing it and what they hope to achieve from it. The overall Ďtoneí if you will. If you look at a picture like one I mentioned before, a usual subject-trying-to-turn-on viewer example by running through a virtual list of cliche Ďsexyí it becomes not only degrading, but boring, unoriginal and empty. Where is the person? Where is the girl? Where is the beauty that inspires desire in something so commonplace? Now compare it to those pictures where someone just IS. Just IS sexy. Theyíve been caught, theyíre in a moment, they are laughing, crying, pre-sex, post-sex, flawless, dirty, whatever the situation but most importantly they are uncaring and being so for the sake of being, not for seeking the approval of the person taking the picture!

A photograph that is genuinely sexy is one where the camera is worshipping the subject and not the subject as a submissive entity existing for the camera and itís then undeserving operator!

This is why i have no problem being naked for the likes of Rankin or Justin Smith. You look at their photos and the subject is ultimately being appreciated, adored even, as an object of lust because said subject doesnít seem to really care as they are smiling mischeiviously, laughing deliriously or standing hands on hips, stone-faced as a figure of authority even when stripped bare. Itís this same reason, of tone in someoneís work, that also makes me dislike someoneís work or not want to be a part of it. Itís the same reason when after shooting a couple of rolls with Terry Richardson and he suggests taking off my clothes, I suggest he finishes the roll and how about we leave it there. Because though I find a lot of the work of someone like that amusing, the unspoken statement in the final result, deafeningly loud for some of us, is that itís all for him. All for the artist and not for the art. And definitely not for the subject. Why would you want anyone to see a picture of you- which unless youíre an already established supermodel or celebrity- was clearly only taken because you let him jerk off on your face? Everyone would know why it was there and how you just happened to be the one willing to be that dayís cum-rag.

For the same reasons of trying so damn hard to please someone thatís already taking something from you- your image- Iíve often been more uncomfortable doing things semi-clothed than I have naked. Because again, itís fitting into that cliche ideal. Itís obviously designed to arouse rather than simply being arousing for just being itself. Or yourself. I guess at the end of the day you have to know who that is and whether you be who you are for you, or the approval of others. I donít find it to be sexy, so desperately trying to fill another personís ideals. Consciously or not. And I donít think a wider audience does either, whether they realise that immediately or not. But as they say, a camera is a thousand times sharper than the human eye and that contextual tone cuts straight through a lens faster than light when you know how to look for it.
