Woody Allen vs. American Apparel: Dov, Drama and $5 million!

By Will Reid on May 19th, 2009

photo09.jpgWhen American Apparel president Dov Charney tells the press that he’s “not sorry of expressing myself,” it usually means that he has done something involving hip fashion, knee-high socks and models who are dubiously dewy-skinned. However, in this case, Charney is responding to reports over his recent legal battle with infamous director Woody Allen over American Apparel billboards featuring a screen-cap from Allen’s well-known film, ‘Annie Hall.’ The ads showed Allen in Rabbi clothing and the director has stated that he did not give any permission for the image to be used. Originally asking for $10 million, Allen was today awarded half of that for the supposed damage the ads have done to his reputation (?!)

Let’s just say that if American Apparel wanted to put up a billboard featuring a picture of me I wouldn’t be complaining!

Woody Allen Sues American Apparel

By Will Reid on April 2nd, 2008

American-Apparel.jpgNow this little snippet of news has honestly made my day. Who would’ve guessed it but according to Vogue UK, Woody Allen is suing American Apparel for $10 million. The magazine reports that Allen “does not engage in the commercial endorsement of products or services in the United States,” and never gave the affordable and fashion-foward label permission to use an image of him dressed as a rabbi (?!) A possible fashion bust-up? At the beginning of a rather dreary month, I (hate to admit it but) hope so.
