Ready for The Meat Dress: Redux? Skeevy photographer Terry Richardson just posted this photo of Lady Gaga on stage in Japan, donning a new version of her infamous meat dress. Luckily for the costume department, this one looks to be made of leather instead of raw beef, and I must say I’m digging the trendy tulip shaped skirt. As far as meat dresses go, this updated style is definitely an improvement. [MTV Style]
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]
Since Kate Upton is largely known for her twins, it shouldn’t be too surprising that the voluptuous model stars in a pair of videos currently going viral on the interwebs. In this first one, posted to photographer Terry Richardson’s website, Upton attempts to dance in the red dental-floss bikini she wore on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue this year.
Let’s just say that it doesn’t necessarily work so well. Keep reading »
You would think that with the level of universal fame Kate Moss has achieved, she … wouldn’t deign to be photographed looking lascivious by her friend, the seedy predator otherwise known as Terry Richardson. However, I have to give it to Kate — all one needs to do is give the girl a cigarette and a leather jacket, tousle her hair, snap some otherwise pretty typical photos, and the results exude the implacable coolness that Moss is famous for. I like these pictures, but that has far less to do with the photography/photographer and more to do with the fact that Kate so effortlessly owns every frame she’s ever graced. It’s no wonder she’s been modeling’s premiere wunderkind for going on 20 years now. These shots aren’t set that differently from the grimy photos Richardson took recently of Lindsay Lohan, but they manage to be worlds apart. [High Snobiety]
Oh, to be a fly on the wall at a photoshoot with Terry Richardson: “Now, bend over the railing and show me your panties … ” Ick, ick, ick. Oh well. She may be a hot mess everywhere else in her life, but at least Lindsay Lohan still remembers her ass is her best asset. [Terry's Diary]
La Lohan is at it again, and for real this time, she is bumming me out. Earlier this week, we saw some Terry Richardson-shot photos of her with massively blown-out pupils and a wonky eye situation, and last night she was out and about for the New York Fashion Week amFAR Gala and … let’s just say she makes Courtney Love in her heroin-addled prime look like Kate Middleton. As a Lindsay fan from way back (weren’t we all?), I’ve always crossed my fingers that this once-beautiful, talented girl would pull it together, but I’m starting to think it’s time for me to let her go.
Kate Moss has long been the poster girl for anything and everything that’s glamorous, rebellious, lavish, and drenched in cigarette smoke. Her numerous turns as an actual poster girl are no less noteworthy. Whether you love or hate Kate (I love), her iconic face is inescapable season after season. Spanish retailer Mango has tapped both Kate and her friend Terry Richardson for the chain’s spring 2012 print campaign. If you recall, the model and the infamous photographer previously collaborated on this promotional video for Mango’s autumn runway show last year. This is a huge score for Mango, who has been fronted in the past by such stars as Scarlett Johansson and Penelope Cruz, because snagging Kate Moss as the face of an ad campaign lures in a whole new, previously untapped demographic: those, like me, who will unabashedly sign on for (almost) anything she shills.

Terry Richardson, a 17-year-old model, and Tammy Faye Bakker quantities of makeup are a recipe for one creepy situation. Let’s hope Lindsay Wixson smudged that bright red lippy herself. [Terry's Diary]
