Someone is Trying to Impersonate Paper Magazine's Luigi Tadini

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

These are photos of the real Luigi, study them carefully.

Earlier today, Paper magazine's Market Director Luigi Tadini posted the following message to his Facebook status: "Please be aware that someone has created an email and is posing as me. If you happen to receive a message from, please let me know."

We feel sorry for whomever is pretending to be Tadini—when they try turning up at events and parties posing as Tadini, it will be pretty obvious they aren't. Why anyone would choose to impersonate one of the most famously beautiful fashion editors in the industry is beyond us. But hey, it gives us a good excuse to run a whole gallery of photos of Tadini. Study these carefully, people. This is the real Luigi Tadini. Anyone else who claims to be is just a cheap imposter.
