The Monday, July 19, episode of The Bold and the Beautiful will feature a picture-perfect moment between popular pairing Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) and Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) -- literally!
Soap Opera Digest reports that world-renowned fashion photographer Ellen Von Unwerth will be appearing as herself in scenes for the CBS soap opera, and she will take photos of the couple that fans affectionately call "Bridge."
Von Unwerth is a German-born photographer whose work has appeared in major publications such as Vogue, Vanity Fair, Interview, and Playboy. She has also published several books of photography and has directed commercials and web films for Revlon, Clinique, L'Oreal, and Equinox.
Von Unwerth is also famous for creating artwork that has appeared on countless albums, including Duran Duran's Liberty and Medazzaland; Bananarama's Pop Life; Janet Jackson's The Velvet Rope; Britney Spears' Blackout; Christina Aguilera's Back to Basics; and Rihanna's Rated R and Talk That Talk.

As B&B fans know, featuring Von Unwerth is just the latest move that the CBS soap opera has taken to further align itself with the real-life world of high fashion. Just last year, B&B hired Hollywood stylist and fashion influencer Erica Pelosini to clothe its characters.
