  1. Great concept, but I’ve never been a big fan of Magdalena.. she just looks like a cheap Polish.. never mind 😡

          Im sure you are better looking. Referring to someone as beautiful and well known in fashion world as Polish whore/prostitue is tasteless, whether you like it or not.

            Too some people want to make fashion be all about doing crazy stuff, such as hiring a Polish whore to walk in your show.

            you don’t have to be better looking to tell your opinion of a model. that’s their job, be on spot and be judged, so it’s stupid to protect them, is she your daughter or what?

  2. this is so cute, i love the panda shots!

    the quality could be better for some of the outdoor photos… but Magdalena looks great nonetheless!

  3. I’ll give the Terry whinge. I believe I am entitled to because I have come to like some of his work, and some of his overt older stuff has won me over too. Terry’s predilection of inserting himself into his shoots makes me want to puke but that is not the problem here.

    The first problem is that Terry is just not a very good photographer. He only knows how to shoot straight on with the model facing him (and us). That is so obvious here. Also the shots are just poor. I know what we see are scans but as someone has said the outside shots are just terrible and they are. I know it is a Terry signature but the brazen overlit colours are just exhausting. Finally, without the sexual innuendo, all meaning falls away in Terry’s shoots till it is revealled that his shoots are just a model in a setting, and unlike the settings of other photographers, Terry’s sets aren’t dressed. What you see is what is there is – overgrown grass, peeling paint, mess on the ground.

    Perhaps most importantly, whatever our taste for Magdalena is, Terry has managed to make her look crass and even ugly.

    This is one of the worst big name shoots I have seen in ages.

  4. there are no ninjas in china, you ignorant americans. if you choose to shoot a culturally inspired editorial, stick to one culture. don’t assume that all asian cultures are exactly the same, because they are not. and i really hope that ninjas are not the first things that come to mind when thinking of asia.

    • thats whats wrong with fashion, sticking to one culture. not that i like this shoot, but seriously why cant anyone mix races in a photo its so annoying.

      boy i haven’t even seen the ninja 😀 I agree! art such as photography should show culture and support it, not make people associate with silly things

  6. This editorial is a mishmash of every Asian stereotype rolled into one. It would’ve come full circle if they’d put the Mr. Miyagi/palm reader in a changshan. The cheap panda suit and the flying ninja are the most distracting (not to mention, RIDICULOUS) accessories and completely unnecessary to the story. The clothes are almost secondary to the editorial, which is confusing as is this not a FASHION magazine?

    Talentless Terry and his stupid ego need to go away and die.

  7. Magdalena is HOT. This is very cute and there is no reason to make it political or cultural. Its fun, its sexy and she looks amazing. As usual!

    The problem is that these poor overworked girls has absolutely no say in how they are portrayed , the just submit to these designers whims and collect a paycheck. Magdalena is a doll and a very hardworking doll.

  11. I actually think the model lets this down not Terry her poses and facials just doesn’t look good.
