Terry, Terry, he’s so very gross. But yet somehow celeb ladies (and reputable mags and newspapers, ahem New York Times) continue to work with the geezer. The latest collaborator? Rihanna, who did a shoot with Richardson at his Bowery studio on Wednesday. When will these ladies learn? [Terry's Diary]
James Cameron’s films always make a stylistic impact, from “Titanic”‘s Heart of the Ocean to the blue-skinned, pseudo-feline Na’vi people in “Avatar,” so it’s only natural that someone would eventually arrange to depict his instantly recognizable scenes in a high fashion way. In celebration of “Titanic”‘s 3D re-release, Harper’s Bazaar welcomes us to the world of James Cameron, in which model Hailey Clauson (yes, that Hailey Clauson) poses alongside the director’s most iconic images. I can’t help but feel that it’s a little strange to have Clauson, swathed in a pale pink fur and silk gown, leaning against a model of the Titanic (the tragedy of which, you know, actually happened), but the photo is beautifully striking nonetheless. My favorite, though? The model in a sequined ombre Blumarine dress, her skin fading into CGI as Neytiri looks on. [Harper's Bazaar]

It’s no-big-whup news that Lily Allen is starring in the new Chanel campaign. In her first foray into Chanel ads, she did the whole Audrey Hepburn thing. But the new 411: We’ve spotted behind-the-scenes photos from the latest installment, courtesy of The Daily Mail. Lily’s posing with Karl (who’s also working it behind the camera) and rocking a seriously layered ‘do. The Mail claims she’s looking sort of nervous, but I’m calling BS on that—Miss Allen is a photo shoot vet, and knows her way around a camera. Check ‘em out… Keep reading »
If you can’t tell already, the theme emerging here in The Frisky style section today is models suffering for their “art.” And lest you think photo shoots are all pampering facials and kicky jumps in the air, check out this extremely gruesome, The Cure soundtrack-appropriate, behind-the-scenes V magazine cover shoot, if you dare. Mwah-ha-ha… [Fashion Copious] Keep reading »
