This week I was invited by Lavazza to Milan for the launch of their the twentieth edition of their iconic calendar, but as I was in NY I couldn’t make it over in time.

Annie Leibovitz, Miles Aldridge, David LaChapelle, Mark Seliger, Elliott Erwitt, Finlay MacKay, Ellen von Unwerth Erwin Olaf, Thierry Le Gouès, Marino Parisotto, Eugenio Recuenco and Albert Watson were briefed to demonstrate their love of Lavazza coffee through self-portraits.

Following his Tweet earlier this month (that was since deleted), expressing his outrage about the plagiarism issues of Rihanna’s S&M video, photographer David LaChapelle has now confirmed that he is suing the Bajan popstar.
According to Billboard.com:
Rihanna’s lurid and brightly colored music video “S&M” was “directly derived” from pictures taken by prominent U.S. fashion photographer David LaChapelle, he said in a lawsuit made public on Monday.
LaChapelle, who has shot celebrities for magazines such as Rolling Stone, GQ and Vanity Fair, said “the music video is directly derived from and substantially similar to the LaChapelle works”.
In the suit, LaChapelle said Rihanna had appropriated eight of his images into the video, such as a shot where she is shown in profile against a blue background with a piece of candy on her tongue.
LaChapelle said Rihanna’s video copied the “composition, total concept, feel, tone, mood, theme, colors, props, settings, decors, wardrobe and lighting” of his work.
He is suing for unspecified damages. A spokeswoman for Rihanna did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Also it is worth noting that the video took more than just “some inspiration” from the work of 19 year old fashion photographer, Philipp Paulus that was published in his editorial PAPERWORLD last August.
