STONEHENgE plagiarised Fanning sisters’ previous photoshoot?

As mentioned earlier, the ‘Jung sisters’, Girls’ Generation‘s Jessica and f(x)‘s Krystal, recently posed for jewelry brand ‘STONEHENGE‘.

The pictorial was unveiled earlier and garnered the attention of fans as the photos showcased the flawless beauty of the two sisters.

However, although the ad is beautiful and the sisters are undoubtedly stunning in the photos, netizens have pointed out that it looks all too familiar. It turns out the ad featuring Jessica and Krystal looked pretty much identical to celebrity sisters Dakota and Elle Fanning‘s pictorial in ‘W‘ fashion magazine’s December 2011 issue.

Many were upset that the two sisters were unfortunately involved in a pictorial that seem to be a blatant copy off the Fanning sisters’, and voiced their opinions, writing, “[STONEHENGE] totally copied. It’s embarrassing”, “Why did the photoshoot director use this type of concept”, “Does [STONEHENGE] not have any dignity”, and “Can we not copy off foreign pictorials?”

However, some believed that it was intentional and meant to be noticed, commenting, “Since the Fanning sisters are very famous and the Jessica and Krystal also happen to be sisters, maybe they decided to parody the concept on purpose?”

I think that's more likely tbh

The chances of a potential lawsuit makes that seem very unlikely.

Embarrassing tbh. I really liked the photos though...

As a photographer, I wouldn't consider this plagiarism. This kind of thing happens all the time. I had an amazing teacher in college who works as a fashion photographer and he always said to try to rip off photographs that you love. Because it's never going to be the exact same and you'll end up bringing something new to it. Art in general is just people playing off of each other's ideas. Fashion photographers shoot with a wall of inspiration photos for reference for lighting, poses, styling, etc. So shoots that were heavily influenced by another photographers work are very common.
Just my 2 cents!

This person didn't do anything to put their own twist on the concept or make it something interesting or different. They simply just plainly copied the original shoot. The point of burrowing inspiration from something is to expand and evolve ideas. There's a clear difference between inspiration and plagiarism and straight up lazy copying.

Apparently she fell twice because she was exhausted and was rushed to the hospital by her manager

isn't it pretty obvious that it's a hommage and they did it on purpose
sadistic_dance 8th-Jan-2013 06:38 pm (UTC)
No but it's pretty obvious they just straight up jacked the idea.
bunica1990 8th-Jan-2013 06:31 pm (UTC)

Get well soon, Jessica.
pineapple_soda 8th-Jan-2013 06:34 pm (UTC)
it was pretty obvious
eishastan 8th-Jan-2013 07:16 pm (UTC)
So this is either a hommage or a total embarrassment, why would they copy the photos on the first place, they're not even that elaborate or spectacular anyway.

And I hope Jessica get's better soon :( my poor bb!
