Holland's Next Top Model Winner Wins Lawsuit Against Elite

ananda marchildon hollands next top model sloggi elite model management lawsuit

Former Holland's Next Top Model winner Ananda Marchildo has come out victorious in a lawsuit against Elite Model Management.

As part of her grand prize, the Top Model winner scored a 3 year contract with the super agency, only to have it cut short because her hips were "too big".

Since Elite didn't live up to their half of the bargain, Marchildo sued and on Wednesday a the Amsterdam District Court agreed the modeling agency couldn't order her to lose weight. As a result, Ananda was awarded $86,500 in damages plus interest in lawyer fees.

Ananda said of her legal victory:

I'm proud to be a good role model, that's how I see it, for young girls. If you can't be a model for high fashion, you're still beautiful. I'm proud to be able to show that just because a modeling agency wants that, it doesn't mean that if you have a bigger size you're done for.

And 'done for' she is not! Sloggi already hired the model to do some work with them (as U can see above).

You go, girl!

Filed under: ModelsPhotoshop AwardzSpread 'Em

GQ Spain is lashing out at Irina Shayak and Elite Model Management after they accused them of publishing unauthorized nude photos of the model.

In a statement posted on their blog, the Spanish mag said Irina willingly took off her clothes — and they have 15 witnesses plus the original images to back them up!

Inneresting.

So why would Irina's talent agency ARC PR make those claims? Publicity stunt perhaps?

Irina Shayk Furious Over Nude Photos In GQ Spain

Uh oh!

Cristiano Ronaldo's model girlfriend Irina Shayak is pissed at GQ Spain for publishing photos of her in the December issue that were altered to make her appear nude.

A rep from Irina's talent agency ARC PR, which is owned by Lorenzo Martone and Ryan Brown, issued the following statement:

A contract was signed on behalf of Ms. Shayk by Elite Model Management where she was to have approval of the interview, cover and images and was refused that right by the publication. Ms. Shayk was not nude and did not approve these images. Irina Shayk NEVER saw the images, cover or caption that was used in GQ Spain.

Futhermore, in an effort to sell more magazines SPAIN GQ printed "Want to see Animal Irina Shayk nude?" these kind of statements are not only not true but also defamatory towards Ms Shayk's persona and image this lack of professionalism and neglect towards the future of Ms Shayk's modeling career in an effort to sell magazines is not only shocking but unacceptable from such an established and prestige publication as GQ.

Shady!

GQ hasn't said a word about the situation, but if there was a contract involved it sounds like they're screwed.
