Terry Richardson Likes It When You Eat
When it comes to images and editorials I’d like to think I have a pretty good eye and memory…often times, this leads me to some sort of fashion deja vu and now the latest is well…interesting. Photographer Terry Richardson, known for his controversial ways (see here and here) seems to have more than just a thing for scantily clad models… His latest obsession comes in the form of others nom-noming (that’s eating for all you who are less familiar with memes) and doing so quite aggressively.
First there was former plus size model Crystal Renn doing work on a raw steak and loads of seafood for Vogue Paris last year. Then there was the innocent Lea Michele of “Glee” playfully licking a lollipop in a scandalous editorial for GQ.
And who says models don’t eat?! The adorable Lindsey Wixson stuffed her face with spaghetti for Vogue Japan.
And last but not least, a big thanks to Richardson for ruining one of my all time favorite desserts as he shoots American fashion designer Michael Kors getting quite friendly with an apple pie for Harper’s Baazar.
What do you think? In my opinion, I’m over the whole Terry Richardson aesthetic, or rather…I never was really all that in to it to begin with…I think it’s time to try something different, Terry.
