Hollywood Splash
Photographs by Véronique Vial

Integral to the image of Southern California glamour and success, the luxurious backyard pool symbolizes fun in the sun for those have made it-vivid, aqueous proof of the American Dream hard at play. As an icon of prosperity, as well as an instrument of a healthy lifestyle, the pool is one of the supreme status symbols dating back to the time of The Great Gatsby and a glamorous Hollywood of the silent era. More than an athletic facility, the pool is designed for socializing, frolicking, sunbathing, skinny-dipping…in short having loud, splashy fun.

In Hollywood Splash, famed photographer Véronique Vial, author of the blockbuster bestseller Women Before 10 A.M. (powerHouse Books HC: 1998, PB: 2001), takes a dip into the private pools and captures rare and unguarded moments of some of today's top actors and models playfully cavorting and hamming it up for the camera. Hollywood Splash includes photographs of models Claudia Schiffer, Heidi Klum, and Angie Everhart; actresses Jane Fonda, Brooke Shields, Daryl Hannah, Kristanna Loken, Tara Reid, Rosanna Arquette, Allison Janney, Claire Forlani, Lisa Marie, Jennifer Beals, Lauren Ambrose, Jennie Garth, Rachel Leigh Cook, Melissa Joan Hart, and Jennifer Grey; directors Brett Ratner, and Bryan Singer; actors Andy Garcia, Jackie Chan, Benjamin Bratt, William H. Macy, Mario Lopez, Corey Feldman, Jim Belushi, Jeff Goldblum, Michael Chiklis, Blair Underwood, Seth Green, and Esai Morales; musician Dave Navarro; an J-Lo's ex-husband Cris Judd-as you've never seen them before. Sopping wet!

    Incredible

    This book shows the playful, carefree side of the celebirties that seem to work so hard. And even some that don't. If you like seeing 'inside' the celebirties you love, buy this book!
