Even though you’ve buried it in the deepest depths of your subconscious, you’ve always wanted to know what it would be like to kiss yourself, right? It’s a dangerous game, because you could come out realizing you kiss like that girl with the tumble-dryer tongue, but it’s definitely worth the risk if you get the chance because no one in the history of time has ever gone there. Terry Richardson almost did, though, when Chloë Sevigny dragged up as him for a magazine cover and showed him what it’s like to be kissed with a mustache.
Guys in dresses equaled fashion fun, while women with beards equaled lurid tabloid documentary TV. That is until this year’s cover of Candy, the world’s most revered transvestism and transsexuality zine, where Terry Richardson shot Chloë Sevigny as himself.
Obviously, Terry always puts his glasses on people he shoots, but this time they’ve gone all out with receding hairline, mustache, and mutton chops.
It’s limited to 1000 copies, so you might wanna buy a copy for your descendants in 300 years time when Terry is seen as the Ruebens of the fashion photography world and his work sells for more than Italy’s GDP.
