Researches have shown that social media can have a negative impact on mental health, especially in teenagers. Over the recent weeks, Instagram influencers and famous models like Gigi Hadid and Kaia Gerber are sending their own message against social media. Their approach is pretty unusual, but effective: they share photos with a phone case in the frame, with a warning reading “Social media seriously harms your mental health.”
It was more than once that Gigi Hadid was sued for using a photo of herself without permission or crediting the photographer. The famous model’s legal team claims that she’s totally entitled to it. They say that her using a paparazzi photo of herself constitutes fair use because she contributed to the photo with her smile and outfit.
Vogue Italia has recently published a cover featuring Gigi Hadid that caused quite a stir. The model appeared with overly-darkened skin, causing the public to accuse Vogue Italia and photographer Steven Klein of racism. It has gone so far, that even Hadid herself has apologized for the controversial cover, explaining that she had no control over the final result.
The upcoming March issue of British Vogue features Gigi and Bella Hadid on the front and back cover. However, the photo inside the magazine, where the sisters are posed together, has recently shocked the public. Hadid sisters are posed completely nude in a pose that many people described as “distasteful,” “gross” and even “sick.”
Famous model Gigi Hadid is being sued for copyright infringement. Last week, Photographer Peter Cepeda filed a lawsuit against her because she posted his photo of her on Instagram without his permission. She allegedly ripped the photo from a news outlet, removed the credit byline, and posted the photo to her profile. By doing this, she violated the copyright law, so Cepeda and his agency INF decided to file a lawsuit.
