Why hello! It’s a holiday weekend here in the U.S. and the unofficial end to summer. There’s already a crispness in the air here in New York City while our Swedish office is savoring the last of their long summer days by the beach.

With that said, we too are closing down the office to try and get in one last beach weekend. So, let’s get to it.

Here’s your model, fashion, The Hamptons and our Men’s Corner news for the week of 3 September.

Sara Sampaio

Took to Facebook to pen an open letter to the paparazzi and the press.

“How would you feel if you woke up one morning to find pictures of your 25yr old daughter topless all over the internet? Your daughter had done nothing wrong, she was sunbathing, she was not in a public place, she was privately minding her own business.”

“A few days ago I was on holiday in the South of France. I had no idea that there was someone far away with a big telescopic lens taking pictures of me. Some of you may say that I’m a public figure and it comes with my job. Others that I’m used to being photographed in swimsuits. There is a difference though. Its my job, yes I get paid for taking pictures, but I give my consent to take them. I have my professional life and I have my private life. We all go to work, some to an office, some to a studio, but when we come home people should respect our privacy.”

“What kind of society do we live in where people are paid money to spy on others, take pictures and invade their privacy. As a young woman I feel violated. Not only do I wake up to see pictures of myself all over the internet but then I also have to suffer abuse from people body shaming me. I’m proud of my figure. I know I’m not perfect, far from it, but it’s who I am and I work hard to stay in shape. Why are people so quick to objectify women, to comment that this part of their body is too small, or that that part is too big.”

“To the person that sold my picture to the press, I really hope that one day you don’t wake up with your daughter’s naked picture all over the internet. To the press, please stop funding people to take these pictures and to the people that hate and body shame, let’s show more compassion and love.”

She ended this with a simple, “Love, Sara.”
