Hailey Clauson Controversy: Biker Babe Too Racy?
Aug 21, 2011 - by Samantha Lim
We've been fielding comments left and right about sixteen year old model Hailey Clauson who is suing Urban Outfitters $28 million for using this spread eagle, biker babe photo of her on a tshirt.
Clauson has been a model for 2 years for brands like Donna Karan, Calvin Klein, Gucci, and Oscar de la Renta, and she is claiming that this photo is "destroying her reputation". According to her lawyer, her leather shorts, lack of a bra, and "blatanly salicious" manner have framed a portrait that would be of interest "to the likes of pedophiles". Ouch. Shot by photographer Jason Lee Parry, he claimed that he did not release the photo after complaints from her agent at Ford. The unanswered question of the day is, how did the image end up in German magazine Quest and then on a t-shirt at Urban Outfitters if it was never released? Do you guys think its too racy for a 16 year old?
