Rebel Wilson, Beautiful and Sexy for New York Magazine
Robert Maxwell has "a lot of bounce in [his] step" following the release of his second cover this month for New York Magazine. (He photographed Leonardo DiCaprio for the fall preview issue.) This week, Maxwell's picture of actress Rebel Wilson fronts the mag and more of his photos accompany Lynn Hirschberg's article "The Misfit: Can Rebel Wilson Create the American Sitcom's First Genuine Outcast?"
The shoot left behind Wilson's potential "misfit" moniker. "Jody [Quon, New York's photography director,] said she wanted Rebel to look beautiful and sexy ... and I think we killed it," remarked Maxwell. "When Rebel got on set, after the first shot, she turned around and said, 'I've never felt so beautiful in my life.' And I knew we were going to have a good day."
"It's the sum of many parts to make a great image," the photographer continued. "It's not just great lighting or having a good eye; it's having a great crew – a great makeup artist, a great stylist, and a great prop designer or set designer. When all of those elements come together, you end up with great results."
