hand models

From a compendium of hand models — who they are, what they are famous for — the faces behind the hands:

During a photo shoot in 1983, Elizabeth Barbour says she “tilted her hand in such a way” that the photographers captured the perfect shot of her hand grazing a glass. The shot was the basis for the redesign of the Palmolive soap label, which is still around to this day. She was paid $650 for the shoot and calls the experience “one of the funniest things I’ve ever done.”

Two of the models talk about hand cream and constant gloves.

    I’m a little disappointed. I thought the models would all appear somewhat troll-like — trolls with achingly beautiful hands.

    I’m sure the note about Megan Fox’s grotesque thumbs is going to make a lot of guys think twice before they masturbate while watching still frames of her movie DVDs.
