This section presents, reinterpreted in a glamorous way, the vices and obsessions that afflict the brilliant world of famous celebrities. LaChapelle who, in his work, never expresses moralistic viewpoints, displays sexual fantasies and tendencies, exhibitionism and violent attitudes; he shows how excesses, whatever form they take, are closely related to the wish for self-assertion.
