Chloe Sevigny dresses up as Terry Richardson: creepy or funny?


A while ago, James Franco did drag for the cover of Candy, a magazine for and by transvestites or something – they call themselves “the first transversal magazine”. This is only their third issue, and if the person on the cover looks familiar, it’s because SHE is. It’s Chloe Sevigny, dressed up in a drag king version of “Uncle” Terry Richardson. Terry Richardson, as many of you know, is the fashion photographer and noted pervert (go here for the backstory on his perversions) who is best known this year for being doing photoshoots with Lindsay Lohan, and Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux. He also does a lot of cover work for Rolling Stone and Harper’s Bazaar – many of the pop stars love him, like Gaga and Katy Perry.

Now, I tend to like Chloe when she isn’t speaking or trying to infect me with her umlaut. But can any of us ever UNSEE the image of Chloe as Terry? Am I overreacting to the creep-factor? Is this just a cool drag king thing that I’m obviously too mainstream to understand fully? Is it just something silly and cute? Ugh. It’s just so… scary. She looks way too much like Uncle Terry.

    Um, a little too convincing.

  3. Venefica Delirium says:

    That guy’s such a classless asshole.

  4. A. says:

    When I think about Chloe it reminds me her (in)famous film “The Brown Bunny”. So, yes, there is some creep-factor about her.

  5. Marianne says:

    THat photoshoot with Justin and Jennifer was actually cute, but yeah he seems like a total pervert. He was also responsible for the GQ Glee shoot, where Lea and Dianna posed sexily, and had Cory’s hands on each of their asses.

    I like it!

  7. francesca says:

    That cover shot is very kind to his hairline.

  8. Dorothy#1 says:

    She is just awesome! Creepy picture though. 🙂

  9. carrie says:

    funny and awesome! Richardson was in fRance for the french fashion week and he was all of fun

  10. Ann says:

    Richardson is a creepy old man who bullies young women into having sex with him. I wouldn’t be surprised if he turns out to be a rapist as well. And, my lawd, he’s UGLY.

  11. Jessica says:

    I like it!! Good job!!

  12. clare says:

    Huh, I thought it was Justin Timberlake!

  13. Frank says:

    Stick to the BJ videos Chloe, thats where your star shines brightest.

  14. GirlyGIrl says:

    THat is effing hilarious

    It’s nice to know a celeb anywhere has some sort of imagination

    The second pic, Chloe’s beginning to look like “Chloe Sevigny”.

    Fourth photo: Saoirse Ronan, that’s you in 10 years.

    it’s funny because they’re friends. they didn’t pick some random guy for her to imitate they picked an old friend. it’s hilarious and she actually has a great sense of humor.

  17. Melissa says:

    He’s disgusting, but this pic is actually pretty hilarious.

  18. Zigggy says:

    Hilarious- love it. A truly scary costume 😉

  19. HannahG says:

    When exactly was Leto sired?

  20. Kimbob says:

    I just read that Jezebel article that Kaiser had highlighted “(go here for the backstory on his perversions).”

    Wow…what a disgusting creep! Also his sycophant “assistants,” cheering on Terry’s “model.”

    Am I THAT NAIVE, or do a great amount of people…i.e., “celebrities” just turn a blind eye to such? WTF?!?!

    Oh, and his, ‘I’ll get naked & let you take the pics,’ is just his blanket “cover” story to make his perverted behavior seem somehow “normal.” If I ever saw this guy, I’d knock him out cold. I’m serious as hell.

  21. kiki says:

    Totally creepy, totally genious

  22. ShanKat says:


  23. Token white guy says:

    The Brown Bunny…. enough said

  24. harfang says:

    What @kiki said. I hate Terry Richardson. This photo is brilliant. Both things are true.

  25. Ally says:

    Between her Kids start, the Vincent Gallo skeeze & now this, Chloe clearly likes her pervs.

  26. Cecily says:

    Gross. She appears to have very bad judgment, I agree with the other Brown Bunny comments, clearly talented, but WHAT ARE YOU THINKING. Terry Richardson? Total skeev perv. Blech.

  27. Billie says:

    I cannot judge this photo without bias. I absolutely loathe Terry Richardson. He’s a skeevy perv and a hack photographer. Seriously, how does he get so many jobs with his ugly, overexposed photography? Blech.
