Terry Richardson goes "full-figured" for his latest spread in Vice Controversial fashion photographer Terry Richardson steps out of the world of paper-thin models and into the land of curvy, full-figured women in Vice's latest photography issue. The shoot titled "Tons of Fun" features real plus-sized women of a variety of proportions posing against Richardson's infamous, stark-white backdrop in clothing of their choice. Richardson also posted a behind-the-scenes video on this blog which showed the 11 non-models entering his studio in day clothes and transforming into seductive Playgirls. The shoot's style is classic Richardson but the subjects have changed. Check out more photos of Terry Richardson's Tons of Fun shoot with vice below. Spotted on: Fashionista & Terry's Diary
As Kate Moss writhes around on a black leather couch, illustrations of worm-like creatures sit on her chest, smoking, as the ashes fall into her hair. Tornadoes swirl around the couch. Moss' hair changes color like a strobe light. And trees grow from between her legs. Just a normal shoot for Moss, we assume. Photographers Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin set up surveillance style cameras to capture Moss' performance during the Balmain fall/winter 2010/2011 campaign. Using this footage and cropping it together with illustrations by Jo Ratcliffe, Van Lamsweerde and Matadin created the music video for Antony and The Johnsons' track, "Everglade." Van Lamsweerde said of the project: “Surrealism is always there in our work, whether it’s in camera or through computer manipulation. We’ve had the idea for this video for some time. We are fascinated with the different realities going on in one shoot and so the music, the animation, Kate’s movements and the camera angle represent these layers of perception.” Via: AUX

PhotoShop Disasters, they are. PhotoShop Disasters is a collection of the most horrendous of errors ranging from the minimization of Blake Lively's chest to the disconnect between a random model's arm sockets to Oprah's disfigured form. All of these changes result in the photo looking completely unnatural and ridiculous. Re-touching zits and red-eye is cool, but stretching legs to reach super-human lengths is just going to get you busted. Check out more here.

"Hey [insert models name here] it's Terry Richardson calling. How are you? Pink eye! Weird. So anyways, Pierlli wants to do this calender with a group of beautiful women like yourself.
