If you've ever fantasized that if you just had the right bone structure you could be living in a luxury loft and jetting around the world on a near-constant basis, well... you're right, you can. But the recent lawsuit filed by Polish supermodel Anna Jagodzinska against her agency, Next (the details of which you can read here) involves the disclosure of some outstanding payments from everyone from Vogue to H&M. And perhaps it's not entirely surprising given the whole "state of the print industry," but jesus Vogue is cheap. FRENCH Vogue, even. (Everything is fancier and more expensive in France, FYI.) $125? That they still haven't paid since April? Shit. Anna Wintour makes $2 million. On the flip, H&M "pays" (albeit with nine- (and counting) month delay), $60k!
