Welcome to the “Influences” section. As its name implies, this is a collection of images that have influenced the images we create and the ideas we have here at Most of our influences have now been included in this section, in pictorial form. However, this is a work in progress and there may still be some errors and omissions. Please also take a few moments to read the important copyright notice at the bottom of this page.

Fifties bombshell Jayne Mansfield (born Vera Jayne Palmer) 1933-04-19 ~1967-06-27 was famous for her tiny waist and exaggerated bust. She was also rather good at that tightly-belted look that's Chiara does so well.

At the time, the world's media were quick to condemn Mansfield's stunts, and one editorial columnist wrote, "We are amused when Miss Mansfield strains to pull in her stomach to fill out her bikini better."

But here at, we like concave waisted ladies. We prefer to shoot a model that pulls in her tummy too much, rather than one that lets it all hang out! Needless to say, we emulate a lot of Mansfield's poses here at!
