Down with Vogue Italia (choz!)

Now I've always known that the big people in the fashion industry read my blog. Like... hello Ana Wintour, hello Glenda Bailey, halo Carine Roitfeld, hello Robbie Myers, hello Franca Sozzani!!!. And I'm fine if they cannot help poring into my humble blog and get inspired by it. That should be expected given how fantabulous this blog truly is.

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???

Linda who?
Who showed more emotion while combining high fashion?

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.

Choz!

Vogue Italia, nasa Italya ka lang.

Kung nasa Pilipinas ka, nabato ka na ng mga bakla! che.

Kwadjan rules the cemetery. Chos!

i am indeed incensed of the blatant theft! chos!

honey, mas fierce ka sa mga models nila who look like they just came from la paz (funeraria). kulang ng emotions. dinaan sa lace.

higit sa lahat, ang fierce ng brown bag ni bubbles, so anti-plastic bags! heto ang clincher ng fashion shoot na ito.

kiks: queen of cemetery indeed. my god, ang dami ko ring kababalaghan na ginawa sa sementeryo noon musmos pa ako.

gibo: lumabas ang emotion ko kase magaling kang mag-motivate. at, true, tinalo ng LV tunic ni bubbles ang mga lace ng mga puke.

lyka: lalake ako pareh. choz! as for my lips, i have one word for you: lip balm... ay two words pala.

don: couture from the atelier of fuchsiaboy. it would be an honor for me. kinareer!

mel: kaseng fierce lang ako ng icon pic mo. inspirational ka talaga... para kang si jamie rivera, the inspirational diva.

boying: salamat. si gibo ang may kagagawan nyan. kasalanan nya lahat.
