Supermodel Rie Rasmussen slammed fashion photographer Terry Richardson in front of the Paris fashion crowd earlier this week, calling his work "completely degrading to women," Page Six reports. Richardson, who recently shot the Pirelli 2010 calendar (NSFW pics at the link), upset Rasmussen by using photos of her in his "Terryworld" book that featured compromising images of underage girls.
Rasmussen said, "He takes girls who are young, manipulates them to take their clothes off and takes pictures of them they will be ashamed of. They are too afraid to say no because their agency booked them on the job and are too young to stand up for themselves."
According to Rasmussen, Richardson didn't respond to her remarks made at the fashion week party, but instead ran out of the bar and called her modeling agency the next day to complain. She called his actions "the most cowardly thing I have ever seen."
Richardson's reps said they didn't know anything about the situation.
