Terry Richardson Shot Miley Cyrus In A Surprisingly Classy Way For Harper’s Bazaar

Terry Richardson Shot Miley Cyrus In A Surprisingly Classy Way For Harper's Bazaar

When I first heard the names “Miley Cyrus” and “Terry Richardson” together in the same sentence, I automatically assumed Miley was going to appear in some blown out photos sucking on the famed creepster’s fingers in a transparent bid to further “grow up” (read: pornify) her image. But for their recent shoot for Harper’s Bazaar, Uncle Terry and young Miley went the other way entirely, with couture outfits, fashion-y poses, nice lighting, and no finger sucking at all. Is Miley trying to combat the idea that she is “just some ratchet white girl”—a popular misconception which exists primarily in her head—or did Harper‘s simply tell them “no funny business”? Look at the pictures and decide for yourself. More »

Karen Elson Is A Retro Springtime Flower Goddess In Harper’s Bazaar UK

Karen Elson Is A Retro Springtime Flower Goddess In Harper's Bazaar UK

It’s officially spring, y’all! Birds are chirping, buds are opening, and today was the very first day this year I ventured outside without any fabric covering my legs. (The bottom two-thirds, anyway; it’s not leotard weather yet.) And it will grow even springier next month, which magazines shall celebrate with various spring-themed spreads! As a sucker for both spring and flowers, I do not tire of these kinds of photos, especially when they feature cool people like Karen Elson. She’s best known outside the fashion world as Jack White‘s ex-wife, but she’s also a musician in her own right, as well as a great model who’s been working in the industry for some time. And age 34, she’s getting more work than ever. This is hardly over the hill, but it’s still nice to see in such an age-ist industry. Click through to get psyched for spring by looking at Karen Elson wearing pretty clothes and flowers. More »

Selena Gomez Vamps For Terry Richardson In Harper’s Bazaar

Selena Gomez Vamps For Terry Richardson In Harper's Bazaar

In the April issue of Harper’s Bazaar, former child star Selena Gomez can be seen “growing up her image,” as they say, in a very leggy editorial shot by our old pal Terry Richardson. At best, Uncle Terry’s “mainstream” photos look like perfectly serviceable fashion photography, and at worst, they look super stiff and boring, and both of those styles are showcased here. Things are further complicated by Photoshop abuse in some of the pictures. But Selena Gomez is a lovely young lady, so her cute/sexy/charismatic personality shines through nonetheless. I am even willing to overlook the fact that she claims it’s hard for her to get dates in the accompanying article. More »

Drew Barrymore Gets Photographed From The Shoulders Up For Harper’s Bazaar‘s ‘Big Fashion Issue’

Drew Barrymore Gets Photographed From The Shoulders Up For Harper's Bazaar's 'Big Fashion Issue'

When shooting Drew Barrymore for the cover editorial of their upcoming “Big Fashion Issue,”Harper’s Bazaar made an interesting choice: they only showed the very top of her. This can mean just one thing: Drew Barrymore is super fat now! Okay, so I’m mostly kidding, but wouldn’t it make more sense for the Big Fashion Issue to photograph Drew wearing some awesome head-to-toe ensembles? I know she just had a baby, but she is probably still thinner than most people, and I bet she would have looked just fine in the clothes. At least she looks nice from the shoulders up. What she looks like below that, we will never know. More »

Anne Hathaway Looks Strangely Pretty On Cover Of Harper’s Bazaar, Insists She Lacks Sex Appeal

Anne Hathaway Looks Strangely Pretty On Cover Of Harper's Bazaar, Insists She Lacks Sex Appeal

We here at TheGloss are pretty big fans of Anne Hathaway. She’s talented, typically well-spoken and undeniably pretty. While I myself do not enjoy all the movies she has been in (ahem), I do think she has successfully achieved some pretty fantastic roles, too. Plus, she photographs gorgeously and is always recognizable as herself in portraits. But this February’s cover of the UK edition of Harper’s Bazaar sort of irks me. More »
