Looks like Terry Richardson is just as comfortable in front of the camera as he is behind it. The photographer both shot and stars in Valentino's Fall 2013 accessories campaign.
In the images, which will debut in fashion magazines around the world starting today, Richardson's hands and tattooed forearms are seen holding the brand's Rockstud handbag and shoe — both in signature Valentino red. The house's co-creative director, Maria Grazia Chiuri told WWD the images are supposed to evoke "the sensual yet elegant nature of our accessories, described as objects of desire."
While this is the first time Richardson has worked with Chiuri and her partner, Pierpaolo Piccioli, it's certainly not the first time he's appeared in one of his own campaigns. Last August, Richardson lensed an ad for jeweler David Webb that features both him and model Eniko Mihalik.

When Donatella Versace throws a party, a star-studded crowd will attend. Case in point: the designer heralded in a new era of Versus Versace and debuted JW Anderson's first capsule collection for the brand on Wednesday night; and to celebrate, Jaime King, Hayden Panettiere, and Heidi Klum dressed up for the occasion. While both Panettiere and Klum selected dresses from Versace's Spring '13 collection, King took the head-to-toe Versus route. And, in doing so, the Hart of Dixie star showed off a much more edged-up, safety pin-included look. Three different plays on evening glamour (with an apropos Versace rocker-girl twist), and only one can be named "best dressed." Vote for your favorite below!
Punk: Chaos to Couture might be this year's most-celebrated fashion exhibit, but it's certainly not the only one on display. In fact, just this morning, Somerset House in London announced that later this year, it will feature an exhibit on the late Isabella Blow.
Elsewhere in the world, the Rhode Island School of Design in America is highlighting historical and contemporary dandies, and the NRW-Forum Düsseldorf is featuring a show on the legendary Azzedine Alaia. And even the Metropolitan Museum of Art has another fashion exhibit that focuses on clothing in impressionist art.
A look at those shows and the other exhibits about fashion currently on display around the world, here, in the gallery.

Sienna Miller knows how to start (and own) a trend — boho chic, anyone? — but her latest turn toward a more feminine fit-and-flare silhouette is something she has actually loved for years. While Miller's long-sleeved, light blue Matthew Williamson box-pleat dress may be the most recent example of her penchant for the girlier style, she has also stepped out in Topshop, Valentino, and Twenty8Twelve iterations. And it's not hard to see why she loves a fit-and-flare dress — and why, if you haven't converted yet, it's a really flattering choice for most body types. By cinching the smallest part of your waist and letting the skirt flare out over the hips, it creates an illusion of a bombshell-like figure. And for those of you who aren't after a totally body-con fit, this route touches on something halfway to formfitting. All the proof you need, according to Sienna Miller, is right here.
