In an unlikely collaboration, Valentino has tapped controversial American photographer Terry Richardson as the face (or rather hands) of their latest Fall 2013 accessories campaign. Richardson’s tattooed forearms can be seen alongside their Rockstud Rouge handbag and high heels in the images.

The Italian fashion house seems to be following Saint Laurent in using unpredictable celebrities for their campaigns, with Saint Laurent recently using Marilyn Manson, Daft Punk and Courtney Love to advertise their clothes.

What are your thoughts? Is this an innovative move from Valentino or is it just plain odd?
