  2. Nit picky I know but why do you label this "a fashion shoot? Yes it's mostly about women, be and they are (being rather upper crust) dressed fashionably, but would you have used the same title for a set of pictures featuring mostly men? Definitely celebrate the fact that a woman created this epoch making set of photographs, and continued to do so we but don't then trash her legacy by basically making it ' her motivation is all about the pretty frocks'. I don't know if you had to pander to the algorithm, but it's a lazy title and doesn't do justice to Cameron's contribution and legacy me /rant over
