A Ban on Terry Richardson
Terry Richardson sitting front row at Marc Jacob's 2017 fashion show.

Young women have been accusing photographer Terry Richardson of sexual misconduct since 2010, and though new allegations continued to emerge in the ensuing years, fashion publications, brands, and even newspapers kept on hiring him. Some didn’t: After a rash of new reports in 2014, Vogue and Aldo said they didn’t intend to work with Richardson again. But many have, including Valentino (for its resort 2018 campaign), WSJ magazine (for its September 2017 cover), W magazine (for a November 2017 editorial), and GQ Style Germany (for its fall 2017 issue, with cover star Alexander Skarsgård dressed in full Richardson costume). And that’s just in the last few months.

Of those, at least GQ Style Germany won’t be working with Richardson again. The Telegraph reported last night that Condé Nast International — which owns international editions of magazines like GQ, Vogue, and W — issued a ban on hiring Richardson. “Any shoots that have been commission[ed] or any shoots that have been completed but not yet published, should be killed and substituted with other material,” read COO James Woolhouse’s email, which was leaked to the Telegraph.

Condé Nast confirmed to Racked this morning that the mandate published in the Telegraph is accurate. (Woolhouse’s ban doesn’t apply to Condé Nast’s US titles.) We’ve reached out to Hearst for comment, too, since Harper’s Bazaar, one of its flagship magazines, has worked with Richardson a number of times since 2010.

After the New York Times published its report on sexual misconduct allegations against Harvey Weinstein early this month, waves of women have come forward about sexual harassment and assault elsewhere in entertainment and in other sectors, including fashion. If this is what it takes for a major publishing house to finally take a stand against predatory behavior in fashion — and not the years of accusations against Richardson, during which he continued to work for powerful global clients — the industry needs to take a hard look at itself. Because it’s not serving the women who make up the bulk of its workforce, and it’s not serving the women who make up the bulk of its customer base. It’s not serving women at all. —Eliza Brooke, senior reporter

The Easiest Ways to Work Exfoliation Into Your Skincare Regimen

Washing my face has always been a pretty mindless, no-brainer decision, especially after I started dabbling with makeup, when I could feel all of the foundation, oils, and grime seeping into my skin after a long day. But exfoliating? Not so much. Why? Because I’m lazy, plain and simple.

It’s taken some self-discipline (and a cuter medicine cabinet in my new apartment), for starters, but having a few wildly convenient, easy-to-use products on hand has definitely helped, too. I’ve learned to lean on chemical peel pads; like makeup remover wipes, the little wet cloths are infused with formulas designed to whisk away dead skin cells and promote cellular renewal.

Just a few swipes (and maybe a rinse) two or three times a week, and you’re done. I’ve rounded up a few of my favorites — all a bit different, though they have the hero glycolic acid in common — should you need some help on making exfoliation a habit, too. —Tanisha Pina, market editor

Exfoliating products

Pixi by Petra Glow Peel Pads, $22: At $22 for 60 pads, this formula will give you the best bang for your buck with an impressive 20 percent glycolic formula. This isn’t for those with really sensitive skin, but if you know your face can handle some tough love and needs some serious buffering and clarifying, you’ll be happy with this treatment. Alongside the glycolic acid, these pads are also infused with a mix of vitamin E, glycerin, aloe vera, and rose water that really soothes and moisturizes the skin afterwards. Bonus? You can get it at Target.

M-61 PowerGlow Peel, $62: The fact that these come in individual packets isn’t the only reason to give the M-61 peel pads a try — they really do work. In this formulation, glycolic and salicylic acid team up to remove excess oils, reduce pore size and the appearance of fine lines, as well as improve your skin’s overall texture and tone. On top of that, chamomile and lavender soothe irritation. This option works for a number of different skin concerns, but it’s worth noting that vitamin K in this formula works to address dry or rosacea-like patches. If you don’t feel like spending $62 to try something out, you can pick up a 10-pack for $28 over at Bluemercury.

Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Alpha Beta Peel Extra Strength Daily Peel, $84: If anti-aging prevention is just as important to you as exfoliation, this two-step peel might do the trick. The first step includes a powerful cocktail of acids that promote skin exfoliation (including glycolic acid to reduce signs of aging, salicylic acid to reduce pore blockage, and lactic acid that promotes natural cell renewal), and the second infuses anti-aging ingredients like retinol into your skin for a smoother, glow-y complexion. You only get 30 pads, but the results are pretty gratifying. If you want to test them out before committing nearly $100, you can buy the mini-size from Sephora, which contains five pads for $16.

The Truth About Congresswoman Frederica Wilson’s Cowboy Hats
Florida Congresswoman Frederica Wilson

Since Florida Congresswoman Frederica Wilson blasted President Trump’s handling of a call to a Gold Star widow last week, the lawmaker has been threatened and slandered. And, like many women who dare to question authority, Wilson’s appearance has come under scrutiny — specifically her fashion sense.

The right-leaning Washington Times dubbed the congresswoman a “clown in a cowboy hat.The New York Times called her “flamboyant,” and Politico pointed out “her vibrant matching outfits.” Trump took to Twitter to call her wacky,” and former Milwaukee sheriff David Clarke joined in on the social media bullying as well, posting a picture of Wilson in a red bedazzled hat and matching suit, declaring, “The woman is a buffoon. Look at her.” Apparently, it was lost on Clarke that his Twitter profile picture also shows him in a cowboy hat.

While the news media praised white supremacist Richard Spencer for his fashion sense, as if how he dressed lent the alt-right credibility, Wilson’s wardrobe staples are being used to suggest that her concerns with Trump lack merit, or even that she’s stupid. Washington Times columnist Charles Hurt’s takedown of the congresswoman is a case in point.

Congresswoman Wilson has long been known for pretty much only one thing: the ridiculous, colorful, feathered, and sequined cowboy hats she sports around the halls of Congress,” he wrote. “Otherwise, she is ignored because of her stultifying ignorance. A clown in a cowboy hat. All hat, no cattle. A hat rack, only dumber. Her style — or distinctive lack thereof — has always been humorously tolerated because she seemed fairly harmless in a place that is increasingly useless.”

In fact, Wilson is known for being a gun control advocate who criticized her state’s controversial Stand Your Ground law after Trayvon Martin’s 2012 killing in her district. She fought for more funding to fight the Zika virus and reforms at nursing homes to keep her constituents safe. She’s also a longtime educator with a master of science in elementary education, an honorary doctorate, and a history of mentoring young people, including Sgt. La David Johnson, the slain soldier at the center of her disagreement with President Trump. To reduce the congresswoman to “a clown in a cowboy hat” does her and the Floridians she’s helped a great disservice.

What’s more, there’s a story behind Wilson’s cowboy hats. She’s been wearing them for more than 30 years, following in the footsteps of her namesake grandmother.

“When I was a little girl, they all wore hats and gloves,” she told The Hill in 2013. “I was always a prissy little girl who wanted to be like my grandmother.”

Back in middle school, Wilson was called into the dean’s office for wearing Davy Crockett-style hats, but her father came to her defense. She’s described her love of hats as “almost like a fetish.”

After her election to Congress in 2010, Wilson even tried to overturn a rule prohibiting hats on the House floor, but ultimately gave up the fight since the ban dates back to the 1800s, and she wanted to focus on serving her constituents.

On Monday, one of them — Sgt. Johnson’s widow, Myeshia Johnson — backed up Wilson’s account of her phone call with Trump last week. Johnson said the president did not bother to refer to her husband by name, leaving her more upset than she’d already been. Perhaps now that Johnson has corroborated Wilson’s version of events, the congresswoman’s critics will stop focusing on what she’s wearing and address what she’s saying. —Nadra Nittle, reporter
