Helmut Newton was definitely more well-known for his nudes and erotic photographs. Here are a few elegant, timeless photos of his that I love. The first is my favorite:

"The Scandinavian model Vibéké wears a superlative pinstriped suit and crepe-de-chine blouse by Yves Saint Laurent. Shot at night on a Parisian street, her hair is slicked to her head in the sexually ambiguous manner of Garbo and Dietrich, and she holds a cigarette as a man would."
-The Fashion Book (Phaidon)
