Whats Poppington: Rihanna in Esquire

No surprise to me, my favorite sexy Barbadian Rihanna is on the cover of another magazine selling that amazing sex appeal that shes famously known for. Shot by the controversial Terry Richardson again for the second time in a month, Rihanna is covering Esquire in a a military get-up, blonde locks, a very little to the imagination cut out bra and just raw sex appeal….im starting to think, do blondes really have more fun? Esquire UK’s July 2012 issue, topless, with a headline that states, ‘Rihanna Will Not Be Censored’…….hmmm 🙂

Whats Poppington: Rihanna x Terry Richardson

So far this morning we’ve learned Kim Kardashian was banned from the MET Gala, Sofia Vergara is single and now here’s Rihanna grabbing her ass in tiny booty shorts while posing for Terry Richardson who we already know is a photographical Jesus. Rihanna gives us the two butts up with this funny candid photoshoot by the one and only Terry Richardson, its fun, its simple, just Riri in a pair of high wasted denim shorts, and white tied tshirt, and some nice die hard legs 🙂

Whats Poppington: Lady Gaga X Terry Richardson

It’s no secret that Lady Gaga and the Uber People photographer Terry Richardson have been seen, and spotted everywhere the past few months. He’s been secretly capturing every moment of the controversial and talented singer’s life so he can create a photo diary. Im so excited about this, I knew it was going to come along but I wasn’t too sure about it. The book doesn’t hit stores until November 22, but she gives a sneak peak of its content in this video, in which she reads an excerpt of the introduction. I dont wanna talk too much about it, so I’ll let the Lady herself tell you more about her project in the video below 🙂

Whats Poppington: V Magazine embraces the “Of the Moment” girls

V Magazine has always been known for featuring the “moment’s ” most poppington catwalkers inside their pages, but for the first time in a very long, they decided to put fresh faces as the stars of the show. With 2011’s top girls headlining the entire issue of V74 serves moments within the industry. Candice, Joan, Lindsey, Bambi, Sui He, Daphne, Saskia and Hanaa are the stars of today and the mix of distinctive faces says a lot about the current mood. Now is the time for individuality: gone are the days of cookie cutter girls who couldn’t resonate with the public. The new breed of fashion stars are characterized by their uniqueness. All the photos are done by Terry Richardson, my favorite “put-your-face-all-over-my-lens” photographer.

Whats Poppington: Jon Kortajarena




Jon Kortajarena became part of the fashion industry as something “temporary” in September 2003. In Spain, Roberto Verino gave him his first job opportunity in Cibeles, nevertheless, his international career leaped a few weeks later when Ellen Von Unwerth chose to use his image for Cavalli’s younger line. His Dream was NYC and that’s just where he went! Steven Meisel saw him and together, with some of the tops of the moment (R.J. or Tyson Ballou) they put together some amazing photos for Versace. This Basque was always well received on international runways, slowly making his way up until he became one of the main references in the shows he starred in.


Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel, Jean Paul Gaultier, Giorgio Armani, John Galliano, Dolce & Gabbana, Ferré, and Cavalli, amongst many others in the fashion industry, used him in their main shows. In 2007, Jon was chosen to star for seven different campaigns for the most prestigious fashion brands. He often appears in the most important fashion magazines – Vman, POP, V magazine, Vogue Homme, GQ and together with Milan V, they published a whole issue in L´Officiel Homme, with the cover title “200 Pages of Fashion with Jon Kortajarena”. It was the first time a male model had achieved this and consequently it became a reference in the industry. In 2009, Forbes ranks Kortajarena as the world’s eighth top male model and 2010, models.com ranks him as the world´s seven top male models. He has also been given different awards such as Spanish and German GQ men of the year, Marie Claire or Glamour Mexico. But above all, one of the most satisfying jobs for him is the one he does with “The Climate Project”where the very same Al Gore, former vice president of the U.S.has chosen him to be the face of the foundation “The Climate Project” in Spain and Latin America.

Whats Poppington: Lady Gaga’s “Judas” record



The new song — which was to drop next Tuesday and was produced “Poker Face” and “Bad Romance” hit maker RedOne — has the gyrating, mate-calling DNA of any good Gaga rager. “I wanna love you/ But something’s pulling me away from you/ Jesus is my virtue, Judas is the demon I cling to, I cling to,” she sings, likely to provoke some religious controversy (and, historically, the wrath of Katy Perry). Though who knows what sort of mate is going to show up for a lady who just told Harper’s Bazaar that those protrusions on her head and shoulders aren’t prosthetics but rather “my bones.” I’ve been hearing so many reviews about this song, even before born this way was released, so im glad to finally hear it, its a very religious pop song…..something tells me her album will be very religious and political, which is always a good thing, if its done the correct way. So make sure to support her and buy your legal copy on iTunes, you can listen to the track below.

What’s Poppington: Terry Richardson: The American photographer

I just recently saw the spread for Purple magazine feat Lady GaGa herself, I was so inspired again to see one of my favorite photographers work, so I decided to show my appreciation for him by having his work appear on my blog. Some may mistake his work for pornography, or too explicit for some eyes, but I think it’s brilliant and EPIC, anytime you can get a celebrity to do something they normally wouldn’t be caught doing. EVER! In my eyes that makes you a genius, and Terry has proven me right. Terry has worked with the most Uber Celebs around the world, including the President Obama himself. His work includes: Lindsay Lohan, Pamela Anderson, Jared Leto, Kanye West, Madonna, Pharrell Williams, Justin Timberlake, Amy Winehouse, LilWayne and The Olsen Twins, just to name a few. You can also check out his latest project “Terry World” which is in stores now.

Keep it Pretty:Lady Gaga for Supreme

This Month Lady Gaga will be in Purple Magazine and photographed by Terry Richardson. Thanks to ladygaga.net We got a first look of the images last week, when Matthew Williams tweeted one of the photos, revealing that it was the last project he and Gaga collaborated on.

Although Lady Gaga is known for her over the top avant-garde cooky fashion, she should be known for her makeup in these photos. She is wearing the HELL out of the classic red-lip and the OOOO so  famous “Marilyn Monroe” down-turn liner technique. This is definitely a look that you would want to replicate. red lips and sleek sexxxed up liquid liner, must haves for all women who aren’t afraid of their natural seduction.
