London, Nov 26 (ANI): Controversial photographer Anne Leibovitz has been sued by a celebrity stylist after she failed to pay her 266,670 pounds for her work on a photo shoot with Hollywood actress Scarlett Johansson.

According to the suit filed by stylist Nicoletta Santora’’s company The Art Department Creative Services, Leibovitz has paid less than 86,670 pounds of the 343,330 pounds in wages billed to her between July and December 2007, reports The Daily Express.

Nicoletta worked with Annie in an advertising campaign for Disney, featuring Jessica Biel, Jennifer Lopez and David Beckham as the company’’s famous fairytale characters.

The stylist alleges she was not paid in full for her work - including creating a Cinderella gown worn by Johansson, pictured running down a staircase as the damsel before she loses her glass slipper.

Legal papers claim Leibovitz agreed to pay Santora’’s daily rate of 4,000 pounds, wages for her assistants, and a 20 per cent agency commission, reports the New York Post.

Nicolettas lawyer, Neal Johnston, says Leibovitz verbally agreed to pay the balance but has yet to do so. (ANI)
