Vogue magazine has distanced itself from fashion photographer Terry Richardson as he faces fresh sexual harassment allegations.

Emma Appleton, represented by D1 Models, uploaded a screengrab of a message allegedly sent to her from Richardson, which appeared to promise Appleton a Vogue photoshoot in exchange for sex.

It read: "If I can f**k you I will book you in [New York] for a shoot for Vogue."

The model posted a screengrab of the message to her Twitter and Instagram accounts. She posted alongside the image: "Um what", adding "Yeah, I was like whaaat and he said yes or no?"

Before she deleted her social media accounts, she wrote: "I just said um no I'm not your girl, bye ha.

"This industry is f****d up. I've been modelling for five years now and I've never had this before, it doesn't make it okay. That's the worst bit about it."

Vogue, who Richardson has worked with numerous times previously, told Us Weekly: "The last assignment Terry Richardson had for US Vogue appeared in the July 2010 issue and we have no plans to work with him in the future."

Yet representatives for Richardson have vehemently denied the claims, suggesting the screenshot had been doctored by Appleton. In response to a comment request from Buzzfeed's Kate Aurthur, a representative of the photographer said the image was "obviously a fake".

Richardson has been embroiled in scandal over allegations of sexual assault and harassment made by models, which prompted critics to set up the #NoMoreTerry campaign to boycott him.

Numerous models have come forward with disturbing allegations of their sessions with "Uncle Terry", including Liskula Cohen, Jamie Peck and most recently, Charlotte Waters. Lena Dunham and Rie Rasmussen, a Danish actress and writer, have both expressed regret over working with Richardson.

Dunham told the Guardian: "I regret posing for Terry Richardson. As for being friends with him, he's not and never was my friend.

In March 2013, Richardson denounced the allegations as "internet gossip and false accusations" in an article in the Huffington Post.

"Sadly, in the ongoing quest for controversy-generated page views, sloppy journalism fueled by sensationalised, malicious, and manipulative recountings of this work has given rise to angry internet crusades," he wrote.

"Well-intentioned or not, they [the claims] are based on lies. Believing such rumours at face value does a disservice not only to the spirit of artistic endeavor, but most importantly, to the real victims of exploitation and abuse."

Known for his sexualised work, Richardson enjoys the support of the fashion's most powerful players, including GQ, Rolling Stone, Vanity Fair and Harper's Bazaar.

He has shot campaigns for Marc Jacobs, Tom Ford and Yves Saint Lauren, among other high-profile designers. Described as "1970s porn aesthetic turned into fashion chic", Richardson's repertoire often depicts real and simulated sexual acts - occasionally featuring Richardson himself.
