i'm shocked and sadened by this news. this is the worst thing that has happened in years. seriously everything sucks now. and fashion will never be the same. magazine shoots are already looking like huge piles of **** , and this well; helmut was always the saving grace in the horriable magazines. and now none of it will ever be the same again.


i was at a newsstand earlier today, filping through a mag. thinking "ah clothes are shity, models ugly. who the **** put this together, it's complete utter crap." and then i turn the page and see a few helmut pics. and think" brillant, goreouse, genious. maybe i'll buy this mag. after all."



i feel as far as fashion in art (i.e. magazines, books, etc) i have nothing to look forward to any more.

I am saddened to report that the fashion photographer , HELMUT NEWTON has been killed in a car crash , in his Cadillac , in LA.

He was 83 and will be greatly missed , I feel sure .

His photograph of the model in the YVES SAINT LAURENT ' Le Smoking suit ' will live for all time as one of the greartest fashion shots EVER .

Yours , in despondency , KIT

this morning we went to the site were the accident was. i just couldn't believe it. where he exited and where the wall that he crashed into couldn't have been more than forty feet apart. or less. it was a very narrow two lane road.

i felt numb. all i could think was, he barely drove at all. this just can't be happening.


there was a man standing in front of a limo in front on the curb. there were two bouquets of flowers lying there.


the weird thing was when we got out of our car (we parked down the street) another car drove up and parked in front of us. donaven leitch and his wife kristy hume (former model) (who is pregent by the way) got out of the car and walked into the hotel.


i have a feeling helmut's wife was there ( i have read on report that said she was in the car with him). and that dono and kristy were going there to visit her. because if people were gathering just to be with eachother i doubt they would go directly to where it happend because that would be to morbid. but unless someone was already there for an important reason, like his wife.


i think he had a heart attack while driving.

he did lead an amazing life, and i feel fortunate that i get to experience his brillance, yet this just all feels so devistating.
