    So she turned up at the photshoot and was told the photos would be appearing in what magazine?

    Also a top model taking legal action against a top photographer?! When did that last happen?

    The shots were already published in another magazine before. She is simply fighting the fact that Playboy took images without asking permission or that they were granted it.

    It's not the kind of publication I would ever choose to appear in.

    How many times has she posed nude? Her reputation? Her reputation at this point is the "chick with the amazing body that shows it off". And, not wanting to appear in French Playboy? Yes, those nude editorials in Purple are so far above French Playboy. :rolleyes:

    Maybe it's just me (and clearly Lara) but I think there's a slight difference between being photographed naked by Paolo Roversi, by Olivier Zahm, for Playboy, for an imagebam ad or drunk while skinny dipping... just because you do the first and maybe the second, it doesn't mean you'd do the rest and find it just as rewarding.. maybe my logic is not that logical in some cultures where capitalising on nudity is the lowest of the low and shouldn't deserve any consideration.. but like I said, that's just me. :innocent:

    Hope Lara wins this or at least gets an apology like Jessica Alba did a few years ago when Playboy put her on the cover against her consent.

    ^I agree. Just because one does nude editorials for fashion magazines does not mean that they would do the same for Playboy, because they are different. Their readership is different, their goals are different, etc.

    On that note, does anybody know where the photos were originally from?

    I laughed when she said she has to do something about her reputation
    im sorry but the whole world can google her and find every body part she has
    without opening a playboy...she has the right to sue but idk what reputation she is
    speaking of...Lily Cole did French Playboy and i respect her the same way

    :rolleyes: The fact that she does nudity does not mean that Playboy can just take pictures of her without granted permission to do so. And it's up to Lara for not wanting to be in Playboy as that is not the market she's aiming for. Surely she is in her every right to sue them.

    And last time I checked, there is a slight difference in posing nude for a fashion magazine and posing nude for Playboy. Yet again, she is very much in her right to think of her reputation. And that is a HF supermodel, not a Playboy Bunny.

    I could literally google her name and I'd find loads of pictures exposing her breasts yet she doesn't want to be seen in playboy?

    They took her photo's without her permission and she doesn't want them to be in Playboy. Her choice. It has nothing to do with how many times she was naked before.

    I'm no legal expert but I guess it comes down to what deal Greg & Lara made when the pictures were taken, and what conditions were set for the photographer to resell the pictures.

    exactly my thoughts.
    i don't understand why most people in this thread think that just because her whole body's appeared in magazines and she's had naked photoshoots she now cannot decide against publishing one. especially since this lawsuit is not even about nudity, but about republishing rights and such.
