tribute to i














daria pleggenkuhle & othilia simon photographed by philippe simon for zoo magazine #37, winter 2012-2013.

this issue is an homage to photographer irina ionesco….interestingly she is currently being sued by her daughter eva for photographs her mother took of her in the 1970s that ran in several publications including french playboy & penthouse. she has the dubious honor of being the youngest model ever to appear naked in playboy.

now 47, she has tried to sue her mother for ‘emotional distress’ 3 other times.  following the playboy controversy, irina lost custody of her daughter who was subsequently raised by the parents of shoe designer christian louboutin.
