>> INSIDER WIRE —Yesterday, a blind item circulated about a major publication letting their contract with a star photographer near the end without renewal — many drew the conclusion that it might be talking about Steven Meisel, who has photographed every cover of Vogue Italia for almost twenty-one years. However, a source who seems to know the ins and outs of Meisel — including that he turned down shooting the Missoni, Christian Dior, Max Mara, and DSquared2 campaigns for Fall 2009 because of money, and that he recently shot the Roberto Cavalli campaign in New York with two girls and a boy — says it's not him. Perhaps it's Annie Leibovitz (Vanity Fair, Vogue) or Mario Testino (Vogue)? [TFS, TFS, TFS]
