Mario Testino And Bruce Weber Have Been Dropped By Several Companies After Male Models Accuse Them Of Gross Behavior
It looks like Terry Richardson might have himself some company in the Scorched Earth Fashion Photographers Club. On Saturday, The New York Times published an exposé on fashion photographers Bruce Weber and Mario Testino. Some parts of the fashion industry have quickly kicked them to the curb like a stack of old musty Vogue magazines.
If the lights in your neighborhood Jo-Ann Fabrics are dimmed today, it isn’t because they forgot to pay the electric bill (this month). It’s because the whole industry is recognizing the death of a legend, as the Textile Tsar of the Upper West Side (and husband of Real Housewives of New York legend Jill Zarin) Bobby Zarin passed away this weekend.

Six months after Kim Kardashian was held at gunpoint in her apartment in Paris and robbed of millions in jewels, she appeared on an episode of Ellen and swore her days of flaunting her diamonds on Instagram were over. Kim wanted to live a less “materialistic” life. For a while she did. Kim must have decided that nine months was long enough, because she has recently returned to her tacky self.
Happy Martin Luther King Day! Since we don’t have our own giant pile of racist garbage to deal with (/sarcasm), we must turn our attention across the pond to find some trash that needs throwing out.
Meet Henry Bolton and his lady love Jo Marney. According to Newsweek, Henry is the leader of Britain’s “far-right” UK Independence Party (UKIP) and Jo is a “25” year old “Presenter. Music Journalist. Model. Actor. Brexiteer” who was also a member of UKIP until she got busted sending racists text messages about Meghan Markle.
Dolores O’Riordan, who was the lead singer of The Cranberries, died today in London, and the out-of-nowhere news came from her publicist. The statement only says that Dolores was in London and died “suddenly.” The me of today and the teenage me who put Linger, Zombie” and Dreams on every mixtape he made just screamed “FUCK NOT DOLORES O’RIORDAN” at the same time. She was only 46 years old. Here’s the full statement her publicist released.
“Irish and international singer Dolores O’Riordan has died suddenly in London today. She was 46 years old. The lead singer with the Irish band The Cranberries, was in London for a short recording session. No further details are available at this time.
Family members are devastated to hear the breaking news and have requested privacy at this very difficult time.”
The trailer for season two of The Handmaid’s Tale is here and it looks like a real no fun bummer; but fashion. It’s a decent trailer but I kinda feel like I’ve seen it all before. For starters, they lost major points for originality by doing that thing they all do these days where instead of dialog there’s a slowed down, minor key version of an uptempo song and it makes me stabby. I want to snap the index finger off of whoever keeps plucking the same key on the piano over and over and over again. Your movie or television program is dark and twisty, WE GET it!
Here’s the trailer.
Like I said, it all seems very familiar. There are only so many times you can stick a camera on a drone to show ladies in red arranging themselves into the form of a pentagram, or whatever. Besides, Busby Berkeley already did it better. Also, there is something Elisabeth Moss does with her face and neck in the scene where she’s with her husband and daughter that I hate. She looks like she’s trying to swallow a frog. Here’s what I saw watching this:
The Martian, Planet of the Apes, that Mean Joe Green coke commercial, Pulp Fiction, The Remains of The Day, Citizen Caine, Cool Hand Luke, The Crucible, a Canadian remake of Born of the Fourth of July, Signs, Miller’s Crossing, that weird 1984 Mac commercial, The Girl on The Train, The Hunger Games.
That said, I enjoy most of those points of reference so I’m on board. I hope Elisabeth manages to hork up whatever it is that’s choking her.
