17 Stunning Celebrity Black  White Photos ...

When I decided to do an article featuring celebrity black & white photos, I purposely didn’t look for any specific stars. I wanted an element of surprise and I was thrilled to find these wonderful images. When I was all done, I realized I had only one man on this list, but that’s alright, because he was quite special. Honestly though, if the cat wasn’t present, he wouldn’t have made the list! As you look through these celebrity black & white photos, I hope many of them make you smile and even surprise you in a good way.

Rihanna

Rihanna I absolutely love this girl’s voice and her music. I’m obviously not alone in thinking that, since Rihanna shares the number one spot along with Katy Perry, as the artist with most best-selling singles, at nine. Here she looks devastatingly beautiful and deserves the number one spot among celebrity black & white photos.

***

Rihanna's undeniable allure is heightened by the monochromatic filter, highlighting her striking features and the intensity in her eyes. Her success in the music industry is mirrored by her compelling presence in visual mediums. With her captivating aura captured in this black and white imagery, she exudes a timeless elegance that transcends the color spectrum, reminding us why she remains an icon both in sound and in style. The simplicity of the photograph only amplifies her natural beauty, proving that sometimes, less is truly more.

Cher

Cher I’m crazy about this old school black & white photo of Cher. I was constantly entertained with The Sonny & Cher Comedy Hour, her own eponymous variety show and all of her music, especially her disco songs such as “Take Me Home.”

3

Marlon Brando

Marlon Brando Well, being a cat lover and a fan of the iconic Mr. Brando, choosing this photo was easy. His performance of “Don Corleone” in “The Godfather,” made him a household name, and earned him even more adoring fans.

4

Heidi Klum

Heidi Klum I have to tell you that I was shocked when I heard she had split from Seal. I enjoy watching Heidi host “Project Runway” and I’ve been a fan since season one. I even love her small part in “Sex and the City” when she has to step over Carrie Bradshaw (SJP) on the catwalk. Heidi at 40 is still going strong with her boyfriend, the 27-year-old art curator and dealer, Vito Schnabel.

5

Barbra Streisand

Barbra Streisand Hello, Gorgeous! OK, I just watched a video of Celine Dion & Barbra Streisand singing their 1997 hit “Tell Him.” I think Celine has a beautiful voice, but being able to compare them in this way, Babs is the clear winner to me. I’m just a huge Streisand fan and I’ve watched “Funny Girl’” enough times to speak in unison with Barbra. Still, “On A Clear Day’’ remains my favorite Streisand movie, and the soundtrack is marvelous.

6

Jennifer Aniston

Jennifer Aniston This is easily the best picture I’ve ever seen of Jennifer. Her eyes are just mesmerizing, which makes me think if just her eyes were in color; this photo would be even more incredible. Even though you shouldn’t live in the past, while searching for the best Aniston photo, I happened upon one where she is looking at Brad (her husband at the time) with such incredible love in her eyes; a look she has never shown for fiancé Justin Theroux. Just saying.

7

Catherine Deneuve

Catherine Deneuve When I looked for a photo of Catherine for this article, I found that an astonishing amount of photos showed her with a cigarette in her mouth or hand…even at age 70! In the end, I chose a photo of Miss Deneuve with a cigarette, because I wanted something that was an honest representation. She was and still is, exquisitely beautiful. Catch her in “The Hunger” from 1983. You’ll thank me.

8

Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer Lopez This is one of many beautiful pictures of Jennifer Lopez from a photo-shoot for W magazine in 2013. She seems to take a lot of heat about her wearing of furs and even having furs in her own fashion line, but she doesn’t buckle under the pressure.

9

Kate Moss

Kate Moss Here is Kate Moss channeling Faye Dunaway in 1967s “Bonnie and Clyde,” which by the way, was a thousand times better than the 2013 remake. So, back to the beautiful Miss Moss…I love the softness in her face and body language in this photo. Doesn’t this just make you wonder what or whom she’s thinking about?

10

Audrey Hepburn

Audrey Hepburn Who doesn’t love Audrey Hepburn? I think this photo just screams BALLERINA, and Audrey did study ballet before focusing on acting. But while it’s true that most women simply adore Miss Hepburn, you won’t often find her name on a list of best liked actresses in the eyes of men. She was too elegant, too classy; to be a sex kitten and her measurements were more for modeling than pin-up girl.

11

Angelina Jolie

Angelina Jolie Be honest. You saw her name and had a mental picture of how she would look in this black & white photo. Fooled you! I love this playful side of Angelina Jolie and I equally love her femme fatale look.

***

Jolie's portrayal of complexity is nearly magical on screen – and it's no less captivating here. In these monochromatic hues, her spirit – both enigmatic and audacious – shines through. She has this innate ability to oscillate between vulnerability and indomitable strength, a trait that translates beautifully into her off-screen advocacy work. Whether she is visiting refugee camps or directing a film, Angelina carries with her that same intriguing blend of grace and gusto, making every black and white frame not just a photo but a story waiting to unfurl.

12

Mila Kunis

Mila Kunis I personally know very little about Mila Kunis, having never seen her in a single role. But there’s so much buzz about her that I’ve read what I can and am now quite well versed on the life of Mila Kunis. And yes, that’s right; I have never seen “Black Swan,” or “That 70s Show.”

13

Maggie Gyllenhaal

Maggie Gyllenhaal Here’s more truth; I don’t particularly care for Maggie (or Jake) Gyllenhaal and I’m fairly certain I’d botch the pronunciation of her last name. So why is she seen here? I loved this photo and felt it deserved a place on this list. I made this list with the intention of adding very special b & w photos and I’ve managed to keep my personal feelings from interfering.

14

Adele

Adele She’s beautiful and she takes my breath away when she sings. I get emotional watching her get emotional singing “Someone Like You” at the Royal Albert Hall. Let’s face it, there are singers that just don’t do that great when they sing live and there’s disappointment when you leave their concert. And then there’s Adele.

15

Jessica Alba

Jessica Alba Like Mila Kunis, I’ve never seen Jessica Alba act in any TV show or movie. I know she’s famous and I know she’s beautiful. She looks almost ethereal in this photo and I knew I had to include her. I guess I really need to watch more movies, huh?

16

Jennifer Lawrence

Jennifer Lawrence So, here we are again. I’ve never seen Jennifer Lawrence in any movie or…just kidding!! I’m actually a big fan. There’s something incredibly endearing about JLaw. Maybe it’s the two stumbles she’s had at the Academy Awards. This is a woman that is loved by men and women alike. You rock, Katniss!

17

Elizabeth Taylor

Elizabeth Taylor A beautiful, sexy, young Elizabeth Taylor. I don’t think photos really do her justice. Can you imagine someone so gorgeous and then to be lucky enough to have violet eyes? Doesn’t seem fair. She led a very interesting well-loved life.

Black & white photography is so captivating. Of course, there are color pictures of all of these stars, but somehow, when you see them in black & white, don’t you take a second look? Which of these are your favorites? Who did I leave out that you think should have been included?
