I have added several new Tori Sightings to The Dent.
Keep in mind I only place on The Dent a small selection of sightings I receive, due to space and time constraints...
Photos of Tori seen in two coffee table books by photographer Rankin
I am in the process of shooting a commercial and ad campaign for Dove Shampoo. (For those of you in the US, it will premiere during the Emmys on Sunday 9/18!) Today, we (the 6 girls in the campaign) were photographed by a man named RANKIN -- who has shot some of my favorite photos of Tori!!!
The most widely circulated of his images is, I think, Tori with large black eyes and fangs -- pictured on the cover of the Wild Horses bootleg! He has also shot her dressed in drag (with a tiny little below-the-mouth beard) and with the devil standing over her right shoulder.
When I told him I was a fan of his work via Tori, he started telling me about working with her. What an incredible experience!! ... Told me she loved the idea (his) of the devil in the one photo, and the vampiress image in the other. He was really impressed that I had seen his work -- AND, as a result, he gave me a very generous gift: two coffee table books of his work, both of which include shots of Ms Amos!!
The books are called Celebritation and RankinWorks and both were published in 2000. The links here will take you to the Amazon.com listings for each book, where you can find out more information.

THE DECORATOR IN DEMAND
When it comes time to deck out a nursery in Los Angeles, there's only one name to call: Wendy Bellissimo. She has decorated for the children of Camryn Manheim, Kelly Ripa, Alex Kingston, Cindy Crawford, Tori Amos and Brooke Shields. An ethereal, personalized mural is de rigueur, as well as custom-embroidered bedding and, perhaps, a Tuscan theme. But if you can't afford Bellissimo -- and trust us, you can't -- you can just visit poshtots.com for a crash course in all the finery available for your baby. How about an Angel Baby Bassinet for $796? Or the Bebe De La Mer Crib for $2,700? Or a Victorian playhouse for $23,000? Do you or do you not love your baby?"
