Spot the Difference: Terry Richardson shoots Charlize Theron and Gwyneth Paltrow for Rival Magazines Vanity Fair and Harper’s Bazaar

UPDATE: Images of Charlize Theron for Vanity Fair have been removed

  Gwyneth Paltrow for Harper's Bazaar by Terry Richardson

Terry Richardson is well known for his risqué snaps of, well, just about everybody who’s anybody. And the latest snaps of Charlize Theron for the March issue of Vanity Fair certainly deliver. For starters, there's lashings of raunch and attitude as the award-winning actress rocks a cutaway swimsuit, and later, nothing but her undies and a blazer. Charlize, who’s never worked with Terry before, describes herself as a ‘huge, huge fan’ of the photographer in an on-set interview - and we can see why. She looks flawless in these sneak-peek pictures from the shoot. But it gives us a strange sense of déjà vu…

Gwyneth Paltrow for Harper's Bazaar Magazine by Terry Richardson

Terry is obviously of the ‘if it ain't broke, don’t fix it’ mentality, as the shots look mighty similar to those he took of Gwynnie Paltrow for the March cover of Harper’s Bazaar. Both of the glamazons are styled in slashed-to-the navel black halter tops. Okay, so Gwyneth has popped on a pair of trousers, but that’s where the differences stop. Tumbling golden tresses, check. Glossy red pout, check. Killer black heels, check. Legs that go on forever, check and check. 

You can’t deny that the ladies look STUNNING, but we imagine relations between the two mags might be a little strained when the March issues hit the news stands at the same time… Expect stilettos at dawn!
