Vanity Fair Cancels Bruce Weber Party Amid Sexual Harassment Allegations
The party was scheduled to take place Tuesday evening at Art Basel in Miami.
A party sponsored by Vanity Fair and car brand Genesis to celebrate the legacy of world-renowned fashion photographer Bruce Weber has been canceled as a result of the sexual harassment allegations against him.
The intimate dinner was scheduled to take place Tuesday evening at Art Basel in Miami to celebrate Weber's forthcoming tome, All-American Volume XVII.
On Friday, male model James Boyce filed a lawsuit against Weber, his company, Little Bear, his agent, Jason Kanner and Kanner's agency, Soul Artist Management, in which he alleges that the photographer sexually harassed him on the set of a 2014 photo shoot by pressuring him to remove his clothes and touch his own genitals. According to Boyce's lawyer, civil rights attorney Lisa Bloom, more men have come forward with allegations against Weber since the suit was filed.
Weber, whose career spans five decades, has photographed countless high-profile Hollywood stars for Vanity Fair through the years. In 2013, he was honored with a 40-page portfolio spread that included images of Emma Stone, Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper, Ben Affleck and more.
