When it comes to lingerie, what’s not there is just as essential as what is. The best photographers get that and know how to explore the erotic possibilities of what’s underneath…and what happens when ladies stop being ladylike and turn up the heat. We’ve collected a few of our favorite examples here, from some of the biggest talents in the world of fashion, including Nicolas Guérin, Steven Klein and Ellen Von Unwerth. These gorgeous pics are a lot like sex—a mix of sexy, forbidden, fantasy and fun. We think you’ll agree, above and below.
