No? Well, us neither but someone did so they opened up their Photoshop and went there. Writers Holly Eagleson and Lauren Wade remade a selection of controversial ads as part an essay on sexism for Take Part. The pair switched the gender of the models in several high-profile fashion campaigns, and suddelyl the male portrayals of the models in these positions landed somewhere in between creepy and ridiculously stupid!
Nudity-ridden campaigns shot by notorious fashion photographer Terry Richardson took center stage, for brands including American Apparel and Tom Ford, as well as a Marc Jacobs ad shot by Jeurgen Teller featuring Victoria Beckham.
‘I think as a whole we’ve just gotten used to seeing women depicted this way, and the only way we can change it is if we stop staying silent and demand change,’ Ms Wade told The Huffington Post.
The work of Terry Richardson however, is far from funny according to the writer duo. They point particularly to his frequent collaborations with clothing giant American Apparel, which have resulted in several campaigns of questionable taste.
