Maybe she just wanted a big photographer for her first issue and all the big names are with Conde now exept this one. Thanks to crazy Glenda, Hearst lost all its stars

^ Pretty sure he's not the last photographer on earth ... and somehow, Elle had managed to produce covers without him for 7 years. She was making a statement, and I hope her bosses have noted that that statement cost them money they'll never get back.

It’s pretty sick that the impetus for cutting ties with him was fear of bad publicity after Harvey. Not because of terrys behaviour.
In fact all views of it are bad.
1) they simply fear bad publicity not his behaviour
2) no loyalty to this guy when 2 years ago they adored him. Shows how much these “relationships” mean
3) total bandwagon effect. Complete followers not the trend setters they claim to be

I think he should have been fired years ago.
The message being sent is so warped. Oh we fear bad publicity so he’s fired. What’s changed about terry in the past 6 months? Nothing. Except a third party was brought down. Something beyond terry’s control. So he’s being punished for a third parties publicity not for his own behaviour.

^ I agree that this isn't exactly leadership. However, Conde Nast isn't the primary culprit where Terry is concerned ... they can't hold a candle to Hearst.

All of that said, I'm not too picky about the impetus for anyone cutting ties with any abuser. Cut away!!!

Blimey, the NY Times are taking no prisoners! It sounds like it'll be new revelations. I'm assuming Bruce Weber's name will form part of this.

so far it's Glenn Thrush, of SNL Sean Spicer parody fame.

I don't think any major or "important" fashion photographers will be named in this if Vanessa Friedman is involved. She's way too close to too many of those people in the industry to expose them. I may be wrong, but I'm skeptical.

The Lindsay Jones account is utterly disgusting. The way women are socialized puts us all at risk for this type of abuse. I don't think I can read the other one until at least after I've had my coffee

[CENTER]. It's a sick and twisted industry and everyone seem to just think of it as "playing the game." Let's not forget that one agency even pimps their models out as escorts... allegedly. These streets are brutal, kids![/QUOTE]

But what u all propose? I mean that s a business where Sex has always been and will always be a part of the business .
I mean seriously, can you realise back in the days what was like the average night of a guy like John casablancas? A good looking guy loving young models and owning a top model agency
His partner in Elite Gerald Marie was quiet famous for his needs of young girls too.
Still right now the big boss of woman Milan Always share with appartement with young models, are people will really be surprised if he doesn’t not only play cards with them to spend the evening ?

Umm... what? Why does sex(ual harrassement) need to be a part of the business? Perhaps you want to clearify your point, because surely you are not suggesting we should stop fighting sexual harassment? The implications of arguments like that are very dramatic.

Did I say it needs to be like that? No. I just it is like that since modeling exist. A business wich is basically adult males dealing teenage girls...what can u expect from that cocktail?



My point it is the expression sexual harassment is just overused right now.
Sadly it makes weaker the position of victim of real harassment as now anything minor is considered as damageable as what they ve been victim of .

As I wrote , probably at the moment I m writing this, there is in Milan an appartement belonging to a major agency owner which is full of teenage girls, with all things to drink and more ...
Whatever people think, girls there perfectly know where they are, with who they are , and what he hopes of them.
because that agency has maybe right 5O girls in town, and in these 50 girls the ones who have expressed the wish not to be there are simply not there . It is as easy as that.

That s the business as it is, if you don’t like it, just don’t get into it.

Still I dont worry, a few more month of mess and business will be back as usuall, and in Hollywood and in modeling...

I would expect them to abide by the law, and be decent human beings.

Is it overused? Unless people are lying (which is another matter entirely), I have not heard accounts of incidents that does not qualify as sexual harassment. Steping forward as a victim is incredibly difficult, and not something people usually do unless they believe it is important that people know the truth. Perhaps you could give me some real life examples of what you are talking about?

I find this attitude disgusting, honestly. I have no words. It is like telling women who don't want to be sexually harassed in the workplace or raped on the way home from a party to become stay at home moms and to not go to parties. It is victim blaming.

Or perhaps we could try to change it into something better? Or is the mere idea of change repulsive to you in some way?

How would that not make me worry?
