“Herb saw women as beautiful objects and liked to make us look like sculptures. He always wanted the pictures to be as flattering as possible. He was very particular and a perfectionist, and creatively he was always right. He wanted you to look like a very feminine, elegant, sexy, beautiful woman.” - Naomi Campbell, 2012.
