Complainant Name:
Ms Allegra Versace Beck

Clauses Noted: 3

Publication: Now


Ms Allegra Versace Beck complained, through Baker & McKenzie solicitors, that an article had intruded into her privacy in breach of Clause 3 of the Code. The article speculated about Ms Versace Beckís health and well-being, and was illustrated by photographs taken of her while shopping in London.


The complaint was resolved when the magazine published an agreed apology, in which it accepted that it should not have speculated about the complainantís health and well-being and apologised for the intrusion into her private life. The magazine also undertook not to repeat the article under complaint or republish the photographs complained about and not to publish in any format any further material concerning Ms Versace Beckís private life, health or general well being (including photographs of her taken without her consent while engaged in private life activities and not at any public event) except where those matters have been put into the public domain by Ms Versace Beck or her representatives authorised by her to do so.

Report: 69
