Plus Size Model Tara Lynn Covers Elle Spain! Ugh, She’s Called “Real Woman”

Plus Size Model Tara Lynn Covers Elle Spain! Ugh, She's Called "Real Woman"

We love the gorgeous and talented plus size model Tara Lynn (who was also featured in H&M’s “Big Is Beautiful” swimwear campaign a few years ago). She’s just landed the cover of Elle Spain, looking amazing.

Terry Richardson Shot Lindsey Wixson Eating Again (It Was Predictably Gross)

Terry Richardson does one thing now: he feeds simple carbohydrates to spectacular-looking women in designer clothes under harsh lights. That’s his shtick. His latest subject is Lindsey Wixson, who he shot with greasy french fries and ketchup for Purple‘s Fall 2011 issue. Richardson previously shot Wixson with a mountain of repulsive-looking spaghetti for Vogue Nippon. Oh, and he photographed Crystal Renn eating spaghetti in a disgusting manner for French Vogue. …And Natasha Poly horking cupcakes and chicken wings for French Vogue, too. And, well, here’s a gallery of gross photos of people eating by Terry Richardson. More »
