Terry Richardson is a well-known photographer in the fashion industry for two main reasons: 1. His A-list celebrity clientele, and 2. His EXTREMELY questionable methods.
In case you don’t know what those questionable methods are, you can read all about them HERE.
Or you can just read what two models who’ve worked with him had to say, and know that many other models have gone through similar experiences with Terry!
Models Sara Ziff and Alise Shoemaker recently opened up about Uncle Terr’s reputation, saying:
This is more than sad.
Charlotte Dawson, a co-judge on Australia’s Next Top Model, was found dead in her home in Sydney on Saturday morning.
According to reports, she had committed suicide, and the police stated that there were no suspicious circumstances surrounding her death.
Sadly, the 47-year-old model and TV personality had a long history of depression.
Just in 2012, Charlotte was hospitalized due to an attempt she made to take her life after being cyber bullied via Twitter.
She later became an anti-bullying ambassador.
One of Charlotte's close friends spoke out, saying:
The body of a NYC based fashion designer, Michele Savoia, was found by the police in the Hudson River on Sunday.
The 55-year-old suit designer and boutique owner was last seen leaving club Marquee in the early hours on Thursday, but had been missing since Friday.
And it wasn’t until Sunday that Michele was found in the Hudson off Chelsea Piers, near the house boat he lived on.
According to law-enforcement, they do not suspect foul play.
Michele’s girlfriend, Julia Berg, spoke about the tragedy:
What a vile way of doing business!
Philip Seymour Hoffman tragically left us last week, and some designers were looking to capitalize on it!
Naturally, there were lots of celebs at the 46-year-old actor’s wake on Thursday, and some fashion houses were treating it as any other red carpet event!
Valentino took the time to email that Hoffman's former co-star Amy Adams was carrying a bag from their collection which had debuted that day. Later on, once the company realized that the picture was outside the wake, they issued an apology, saying
AHH!! How is this happening??
Unless H&M sells pants that only cover select vertical strips of your leg, the photo above is obviously not possible.
Meaning that the retailer is once AGAIN being busted for using too much photoshop on their models!!
Through this particular photoshop fail, it becomes clear that H&M does indeed use a lot of photoshop…in fact, their "Treggings" are ENTIRELY photoshopped onto (or in this case, half onto) a nekkid bod!!!
We assume the purple pants in question were supposed to cover the bare booty and legs, but whoever was behind the pic didn't quite move them over far enough.

Valentine’s Day is all about LOVE!
And the British cosmetics company Lush aims to use the romantic holiday to show their support for gay rights and love equality through their thoughtful Valentine’s Day campaign.
The campaign is called “We Believe In Love”, and dayum right we support it!!
But as one might guess, anti-gay legislation in Russia prohibits the Russian branches of Lush from participating. UGH!!
However, the company is returning the snub by organizing an LGBT festival outside the Russian embassy in London on V-Day.
Lush’s head of campaigns Tamsin Omond released the following statement:
We didn’t think this situation could look much worse for BET — but now that some EXTREMELY volatile internal emails have leaked to the public, things look wayyyy worse than they already were!!
We reported earlier that openly transgender B. Scott was hired to be BET’s “Style Stage Correspondent” at the BET Awards last year, but upon arrival was subsequently asked to dress more masculine and remove his makeup. B. Scott was angry about being forced to change but obliged, and then ended up being replaced by Adrienne Bailon anyway!!
The wardrobe dramz has since turned into a full-blown lawsuit — and now BET’s REAL feelings on the matter are being leaked through internal emails gone rogue!
The emails reveal a very conniving side to the network, and paint the head honchos there in a VERY negative light.
BET’s Music Programming President Stephen Hill wrote the following about B. Scott:
