Several days after model Rie Rasmussen slammed Terry Richardson for degrading women, another model has shared a disturbing story about working with the famed fashion photographer. Jamie Peck wrote her account for The Gloss, detailing how Richardson stripped down in front of her. (Warning: strong language ahead.)
Before I could say "whoa, whoa, whoa!" dude was wearing only his tattoos and waggling the biggest dick I'd ever seen dangerously close to my unclothed person (granted, I hadn't seen very many yet). "Why don't you take some pictures of me?" he asked. Um, sure.
So his assistants took pictures of me taking pictures of him. All the while, he was dropping names like they were hot, casually mentioning his upcoming Miu Miu shoot with Maggie Gyllenhall and Billy Crudup, wondering aloud if he could get the kid from Elephant to model, and suggesting I come upstate with him and his fab celebufriends. I wish I could say this didn't impress me, but I was fucking 19 and nerdy as hell, okay?
Peck believes Richardson probably approaches all of his models in the same manner:
Gauge the situation, drop some names, take out your trouser monster, and see what you can get them to do. I don't doubt that some of the girls who pose for/starfuck him really do have fun; I'm not going to tell another person how she should or shouldn't get her kicks. But it's not my personal cup of period tea. Or, I'd venture to guess, that of many others who've crossed paths with fashion's sacred perv.
Terry Richardson's reps wouldn't comment for The Gloss.
