Original nude 1980 35mm Slide of Penthouse model Isabella Ardigo by Bob Guccione #997 Model:
Achieving elegance-in body, mind, and spirit-is Isabella Ardigo's greatest priority. Our regal 1980 Pet of the Year tells us, and her every thought, attitude, and move echoed the sentiment. Isabella "Concetta" Ardigo's breathtaking beauty have long since catapulted her into the ranks of Italian Vogue's most favored models; now, with her triumphant selection as winner of the world's richest and most prestigious beauty contest, she achieves yet another dimension of admiration and acclaim. Her statuesque 36-24-35 form has also graced several motion pictures, including the Diana Ross film Mahogany and the sequel to La Cage aux Folles. For relaxation, Isabella exercises her considerable equestrian talents doing what she calls "cross-country cantering any country will do." An appropriate remark, since traveling is a consuming passion for her. Photographer:
In 1965, Bob Guccione, a struggling artist with an entrepreneurial imagination, started a magazine called Penthouse. Due to his lack of resources, Guccione personally photographed most of the models for the magazine's early issues. He spent long hours, and sometimes, several days, to complete a photo shoot. Although he had no professional training, Guccione applied his knowledge of painting to his photography, establishing the diffused, soft focus look that would become one of the trademarks of the magazine's pictorials. These images offered more sexually explicit content than other gentleman’s magazines of the era, establishing Penthouse as a well known name amongst its competitors. Format:
