Terry Richardson

Terry Richardson pretty much took over 2011, and his work has been essentiallly ubiquitous in 2012, too. Most recently, his impromptu photoshoot with Lindsay Lohan at Chateau Marmont caught our attention, but let's be honest, everything he's done with Kate Upton, especially the "Cat Daddy" video, has blown up the internet...and other things. He also just did Sky Ferreira's creepy hot video for "Red Lips," these sexy photos of Gisele, these ridiculously fine photos of Rihanna, and (we didn't forget) these popsicle-sucking photos of, yes, Kate Upton. Yeah, he's photographed everyone, and continues to document Gaga on tour, but 2012 is making him even more of a superstar than probably anyone expected.
