Are Dov Charney and Terry Richardson the same person? Almost! Former American Apparel CEO Charney and fashion photographer Richardson have a lot in common. A LOT.
Both found success in the fashion world. Both have styled themselves with retro glasses and hipster facial hair, and they have both been accused of being sexually inappropriate in the workplace. So how do you know who's who?
This handy guide — which you may want to print out and post in a conspicous place — might help:
Then again, maybe not?
In addition, neither Charney nor Richardson seem to have any regrets. Let's end with a couple of notable quotables:
"Too often eccentricities are exploited by people who are trying to rip others down… I refuse to allow society to define me at this time."
— Dov Charney, to the New York Times.
"I don't have any regrets about the work at all… people do things, and then they have regrets, and that's also nothing to do with me. Then don't do pictures like that again … I'm okay with myself about everything, and that to me is the most important thing."
— Terry Richardson, to New York Magazine.
