If you visited Terry Richardson’s Diary today, you may have spotted a familiar face. Belfast-born, New Zealand-claimed model, Stella Maxwell (AliMcD/62 Models) popped up on the photographer’s tumblr this morning, and from that we can conclude two things: 1.) The girl is, or recently was, in New York, and 2.) Despite all the press around Terry and his alleged behaviour towards models, agencies continue to work and send girls to him for castings. From that I can assume either it’s ‘blown over’, people don’t care that much, or Richardson is just too powerful a force in the industry to deny.
In related news, Stella isn’t the only Kiwi(ish) model to stop by Terry’s studio – New Zealand-born Vogue India covergirl, Ashika Pratt, also visited, as did Matamata-raised and style.com‘s Newcomer of F/W 2011, Emily Baker (evidenced in this shot here). Australia’s (and probably the world’s) most popular short model, Anja Konstantinova (who is 5’4″ but has a face that transcends height) also featured on Terry’s site today. Images below. Note, some are NSFW.
