A Tale of Two Terrys

May 20th, 2010 Posted by Janelle comments (45)

Terry Richardson takes Doutzen Kroes in two very different directions with their recent collaborations. For Vogue Russia’s cover, Terry shows Doutzen dirtied up and looking dangerous as part of his sex portfolio, but tones it down for Vogue US with a sweet beach story. Which look do you prefer – sexy or sweet?

    dont think im an american conservative liking only the “cute and holy” stuff or something!

    im european and i must say that i really like the vogue us photos much more. in the sex editorial and on the cover doutzen just looks cheap and the photos are so boring!

    at least thats what i think of those photos posted…

  2. Marina says:

  3. Joe says:

    People need to stop hiring Terry Richardson .Period

  4. janice says:

    i like the pics.. i think they’re super cute and sultry

  5. xox says:

    The American version looks much more respectable.

    @ Joe

    You said “People need to stop hiring Terry Richardson .Period”

    But when we follow the link to your site, the first image we see was shot by Terry Richardson. Yeah… umm…. we know you didn’t hire him for your amazing blog but if you’re going to hate on the guy, you should probably at least consider the idea of NOT using his work on your blog.

    I can hardly recognize her on the vogue russia cover.
    However, I like the Vogue US editorial
    it’s so bubbly


  8. anlabe says:

    Oh, lovely Doutzen is soo versatile.

  9. Chungkit says:

    Doutzen is just so incredibly pretty. She looks good in everything! http://www.chungkitblog.wordpress.com

  10. All about Models says:

    I think th quality of the cover isn’t best compared to Vogue Italy or Nippon. Well, Doutzen looks nice in the editorial, no doubt.

  11. JT says:

    Both, HORRIBLE.

  12. Nádia says:

    Like the Vogue US editorial more, it’s more innocent and still sexy!


  13. Anastasia Beverhausen says:

    Ugh how can someone so out of this world pretty look like this.T. Richardson is ridiculously overrated. Wake up minions! Move on.

  14. peter says:

    i love her!!!

  15. Chow F. says:

    Agreeed. All of terry richardsons photo’s are trashy theres nothing compelling about his photos or even talent. i thought i was the only one who thought he was overrated!

  16. Amarilla says:

    Terry consistently takes very raw and natural images filled with personality. One of my favorite photographers.

    I don’t like the cover but I love the pics where Doutzen is smiling.

  17. lonna says:

    dont like either. mostly because of terry, and i feel as if doutzen has lost her full model potential (at least i havent seen it in years!) sad with such a beautiful girl. commercial is definitely her route these days and I can see why. its like her face roundness is overtaking her pretty little delicate features. do not like. that doesnt photograph well imo. where is the bone structure???!!

  18. beachboyy101 says:

    Very cute pics!!

  19. peterModelObsessed says:

    Doutzen look like a pretty regular girl who wears a lot of make up. She looks healthy too. Yeah.

    In Vogue Russia, they slapped her with a lot of eye make up to achieve the “sexy” look. But who wears those eye make up at the beach? Maybe the Russians?

    US Vogue tried to cover up her Body…..why bother, is Natasha Poly not available?

  20. BF says:

    these are both so so boring, i used to think terry did terry well, now other people take terry pictures better than terry!! this looks cheap and has no imagination, doutzen is so much more beautiful than how she has been “captured” here

  21. michelle says:

    Only like the Vogue US ed. shades would have made it even better. VR no. not the best look. Terry should be kept to publications such as blender and maxim.

  22. Calvin says:

    Both are great but give me a dirty, dangerous girl any day!

    PS: LOVE that they used a David Sedaris book as a prop. Everyone should read him if they haven’t already.


  23. dp says:

    terry has a great knack for getting his subjects to look playful and comfortable – like he’s shooting friends he’s known for years. i think both eds are great and doutzen looks awesome!

  24. GP says:

    She is beautiful but doesn’t look like a model anymore.
    Terry’s work is good and bad sometime, depends on the clients.

  25. JStarks says:

    Doutzen is amazing and I like Terry’s simplistic look. Most people couldn’t do half as good.

  26. varun singh says:


  27. marcus says:

    Doutzen looks gorgoues in both. Between the two editorials I prefer the US vogue.

  28. DT says:

    Like Doutzen but not Terry’s photography bc it doesn’t seem to progress, its always the same old same old and I don’t think that has to do with it being his ‘signature’ bc others like Miesel, Sorrenti, etc. have progress throw times and still maintained their signature style without every picture looking the same

  29. WinnieS says:

    i can hardly recognize doutzen in the Vogue cover
    i don’t know..but the expressions and the poses don’t work for me.

  30. Mango says:

    Terry Richardson does always the same. NOT A FAN.

  31. Gabby says:


    You’re right. Her beauty is way too healthy to belong to a model. She just looks like a flat-out gorgeous girl.

  32. liolash says:

    like ki ara vandzrev doutzen kroze,auuh ra shevundzrevdiiii iiif…

  33. 1987PD says:

    Her work with Steven Meisel was the best.

  34. Stritlisser says:

    Jouw me de mem van Doutzen mar

  35. peterModelObsessed says:

    Her and Hillary Rhoda grew up to be gorgeous regular commercial girls, which ain’t bad since they Bank on that!

  36. Antonio Barros says:
  37. sjaak says:

    its a bit flat if you ask me

  38. Erin says:

    Anyone notice how Doutzen and Alessandra have the SAME exact pose for their latest international Vogue covers? How creative, LOL.

  39. canner says:
  40. Lv says:

    LOVE DOUTZEN…. hate terry

    I would love to see her being the HF model she was, I mean, I still love her but she just was the queen of the catwalks

  41. piwi says:

    the US looks better in my opinion.. the russian cover looks a bit hideous.. yeah bad terry.. he is really great most of the time though

  42. nick says:

    Well anyone who actually likes Scarry Richardson’s photos had better by two copies because Vogue has finally gotten some balls and dropped that loser.

  43. Lucie says:

    I read Tavi’s post & the one Tavi’s recommended here

    They hit the nail HARD ON THE HEAD

    *FASHION MAGAZINES* need to stop peddling his porn & it’s sad that so few people are talking …. it’s like we should wear our “touched by terry” tshirts and shut the f*ck up

  44. Mohit Bhardwaj says:

    Doutzen is gorgeous.. the more I read about Terry the more I hate him.

  45. Lou says:

    thats really sad that some 14 yr old is blogging about a sexual predator/photographer on the internet.

    Terry is about T&A. He is delusional and thinks he is pushing boundaries when he is really acting out his own predatory desires. The photos are about a desperate photographer trying to achieve status thru exploitation.
