Model Ginta Lapina's $1 million lawsuit dismissed

Top model Ginta Lapina has lost her legal battle with agency bosses over payment for a photoshoot with fashion legend Karl Lagerfeld.

Lapina targeted bosses of her modelling agency, Women Management, in a $1 million legal action over claims they failed to pay her in full for a photoshoot in Paris, France, which designer/photographer Lagerfeld shot for a hair product campaign.


However, a judge at a court in New York City has now dismissed her suit and ordered an arbitrator to resolve the dispute, according to the New York Post.


A lawyer representing Women Management says, "Women Management is extremely pleased that the judge has dismissed each and every one of Ginta Lapina's claims, and enforced the arbitration clause in Ms. Lapina's model management agreement."


Latvian beauty Lapina is one of the world's most sought-after models and has appeared in campaigns for brands including Yves Saint Laurent and DKNY.
