But I did not expect that the day would come when some fashion photographer named Steven Meisel would have the audacity to copy (not even get inspiration dahling... you read that right: COPY) from my blog. Ugh.
Check out this editorial from Vogue Italia for August 2008 (complete set here)... does it remind you of something?
This is supposedly the magazine's tribute to Yves Saint Laurent and the editorial is graced by the the presence of models Linda Evangelista, Karen Elson, etc. Please take note that, we did the shoot last July in Penang while Vogue Italia only came out with their spread in August.
The Czarina of Penang, who photographed me in the photos below, is incensed at the blatant theft of our supreme artistic ideas.
Now, tell me who is more ferosh???
Now even Bubbles can werq it better!!!I know, I know... it's obvious that team Penang wins this hands down. We have a better vision, don't you think? And give us some black lace, instead of my Khao San Road T-shirt, and a better camera, instead of my Casio antique camera... for sure the Czarina of Penang and I would have executed this way better.
Now if only you do me the favor of sending your protest letters to Vogue Italia for this big copyright infringement.
