Vogue Italia Recruits Fresh New Talent for Its August 2015 Issue (Forum Buzz)

Vogue Italia‘s August 2015 cover confirms that Steven Meisel‘s presence at the magazine won’t be consistent in the near future. Meisel photographed last month’s hit after his infamous departure and now, the Italian fashion bible introduces some new talent with its August edition by welcoming an array of photographers. Vincent van de Wijngaard shot Mariacarla Boscono in the wilderness for his debut sitting at the publication and with “The Now Image Makers” splashed across the front cover, we suspect Vogue Italia means business with its fresh new recruits.

Forum members couldn’t wait to share their opinions. “That is one beautiful cover and editorial! I love the vibe. I have to keep my eye on Vincent van de Wijngaard. Very promising talent. A welcome change for Vogue Italia,” Style Savvy approved.

“This time they got it right! This is what you do when you don’t have Meisel,” raved Lola701.

In agreement was [Piece Of Me]: “I’m always happy to see Mariacarla. And while I do like Meisel a lot, I’m always excited to see some fresh talent on the pages of VI. Vincent certainly delivered.”

TheoG shared the same sentiments, echoing, “This is a welcome idea, before I was in doubt that VI would be able to carry an issue without Meisel but if they plan on introducing these image makers into their publication, then Meisel for every single issue isn’t necessary. Love Meisel but he’s not the only photographer who can carry VI.”

The cover certainly seems to hold promise for sales as mistress_f informed us, “This will be the first Vogue Italia issue I buy in ages. Mariacarla looks like a goddess (as usual) and the main editorial is amazing.”

“Wow this issue feels so fresh!” credited Nepenthes.

Jessica probably felt the pressure of being part of such a large-scale show, but she was in great company with David Jones Ambassador Jessica Gomes and fellow ANTM alumni Montana Cox walking the same runway. International supermodel and Bad Blood vixen Gigi Hadid was also sitting front row for Guess. (more…)

Jeremy Scott Is Getting Sued Again for Ripping Off Someone Else’s Artwork

Jeremy Scott finds himself in legal hot water again, this time over his designs for Moschino. Graffiti artist Joseph Tierney aka Rime is suing the Italian label for ripping off some of his artwork and superimposing it onto a gown (shown here) from the label’s Fall 2015 collection. Rime’s tag was also used on a bag that was sent down the runway.

Tierney is further pissed at the publicity the dress in question garnered when Katy Perry wore it as Jeremy Scott’s date to this year’s Met Gala. Both she and Scott wore garments featuring the appropriated artwork. “Ms. Perry was widely photographed in the clothing, as she always is. She even made a number of ‘worst-dressed’ lists as a result,” the suit says. “The Defendants were obviously thrilled with how the episode played out, heavily promoting images of Ms. Perry wearing the clothing in their marketing, advertising, media and sales materials. The only person harmed was Rime. Not only was his art exploited by Defendants, but his credibility as a graffiti artist was compromised by inclusion in such a crass and commercial publicity stunt.”

Rime wants Scott and Moschino to stop selling the offending pieces and is seeking damages for the use of his artwork. Jeremy Scott previously got into a pickle with Jimbo and Jim Phillips for getting a little too inspired by the skateboard artists’ designs for Scott’s Fall 2013 collection. Indeed, the ghoulish faces Scott plastered on sweatshirts bore too close a resemblance to the work of the artists to go unnoticed. Scott later settled and issued a statement saying, “I regret that certain pieces of my February 2013 Fall Winter fashion line incorporated imagery that was similar to images owned by NHS and Messrs. Phillips. I now recognize my mistake and out of respect to their work and their rights, the clothing and handbags at issue will not be produced or distributed.”
