Wow...it's really interesting to see those as a series, and see what difference it made to vary the composition (e.g., put Sharon Gless behind rather than beside) or change the background--really altered the whole mood more than I would have predicted.

Oh, my. There's just something about a loosened bow tie and opened top button that make me sigh audibly.

Yup. The decorative pins on her left shoulder do remind me of Madeleine Albright. I love actors' sense memory (at least I think that's what it's called) props.

I agree with Helen8, the undone tie and shirt works for me...

You are so right Hilary. Many people think a photo shoot is 5 minutes worth of work and it's done. But the photographers actually do try a lot of different posses and expressions to get the right shot. It's a lot of work.

Terrific pictures! I, too, love the loosened tie and open shirt. ;-)

She does resemble Madelaine Albright in the last photo.
