'Head in a Net' Trend Catching On


When I saw Terry Richardson's shots of Robert Downey Jr. in the most recent issue of GQ I thought back to the most recent cover of Numéro Homme I had seen, featuring model Sean O'Pry photographed by Greg Kadel, without the decorative loogie, of course.

It seems Terry Richardson saw it too, or this "head in a net" trend is catching on big time. Kind of like "Dick in a box" but with a fishnet stocking.

AFTER THE JUMP, one more glam shot of Downey Jr. showing off the new trend for summer (it breathes!).

  1. That is so f'in' stupid. I suppose this is the replacement trend for "bloody-faced beaten up look". What's the next trend? Headless?

    Actually, I quite like that idea. The personification of fashion modeling and vapid photography. It'll be all the rage!

  2. It's true. I was at the mall the other day, and I saw 3 different kids wearing nets on their heads.

  3. Yes, and it would be wonderful if the new fad would be young Americans wearing condoms on their erect penises.

    I don't really like young people....that aint good, is it?

  4. Let's not forget Sia's video for "Buttons"... her head was in all sorts of things.

  5. Ditto on Sia's "Buttons." Funny how these magazines are catching on almost a year after that video was released.

  6. Sia's "Buttons" Video was remarkably similar to photos by the artist Douglas Gordon from 2003 and when he did those photos he was looking at Leigh Bowery of Tattoo fame.. I guess these things have a way of recycling.

    J/K! Just remember, youth isn't wasted on the long as you bathe in their blood. OOPS! There goes #162. Get back in the box Erzsébet! Back! Back!

  11. Well, hey, if the rich, beautiful and famous want to look like honey baked hams, who are we to stand in their way?
