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]
Chloe Sevigny posed in drag as celeb pal/lecherous photographer Terry Richardson on the cover of Candy magazine. Isn’t she creepy? And, for him, that’s saying something. [Celebitchy]

Bey, we’re kind of disappointed. We tend to think you “run the world,” so when we saw this pic with Terry Richardson we were a bit dismayed. In case you didn’t know, Bey, Richardson is a noted model fondler and generally creepy dude, who thinks nothing of getting a bit too up close and personal with the girls he shoots. In fact, several models have spoken out against his unprofessional and lecherous behavior.
So, Bey, what gives? You’re pretty much the biggest star in the world, so I’m sure you wield enough power to tell Harper’s Bazaar – for whom Terry shot you — that you’d prefer to work with another photographer. Ah well, there’s always next time. [Fashionista]
No woman in this day and age is exempt from the overwhelming pressure to be whippet thin. Most popular depictions of females and femininity are marked by protruding clavicles, razor hipbones, and legs like string beans. High fashion models of today are the worst perpetrators with many models bringing skeletons to mind. It’s no wonder that the appearance of these girls leads many people to wonder if they ever eat at all! Epicurean pleasures — my personal favorite — are lost on them. How depressing is that?
And yet a trend of sorts has arisen recently in editorial photoshoot: models enjoying food. Read on for Terry Richardson‘s photos of high fashion models stuffing their faces, followed by a couple candids of models eating food in — gasp! — real situations.
Remember when, shortly after his split from Jennifer Aniston, Brad Pitt appeared on the cover of W magazine, playing family man in a photoshoot with rumored lover Angelina Jolie? And Jennifer was all, “Homie is missing a sensitivity chip?” Well, many thought Brad’s sensitively was lacking when he implied to Parade earlier this month that his life with Jen wasn’t an “interesting” one. He quickly went into spin mode, saying his words were taken out of context, but Parade insiders have said that no such twisting of words occurred and that his quote accurately reflects how he feels — that his marriage to Jennifer was a dull one. So when this mini photoshoot featuring Jen and her new boyfriend Justin Theroux appeared on photographer Terry Richardson’s blog yesterday, I couldn’t help but wonder if this wasn’t just a portrait of two kids in love — but also a bit of an “eff you” to Brad and his mouthing off. Jen looks pretty damn happy while Justin … well, he hardly looks bored. I can’t help it — I like these two together! [Terry's Diary]
You know, Liza Minnelli is not typically what I would consider “on brand” for The Frisky, but when Terry Richardson photographs her in thigh-high leather boots, legs open and flippin’ the bird, I make an exception. [Terry's Diary] Keep reading »
