RUNWAY ® magazine blog – online scam



“RUNWAY ® MAGAZINE OFFICIAL – THE ONLY RUNWAY MAGAZINE HQ” : – online fetish fashion and sadomasochist oriented blog owned by Vincent Mazzotta (aka Vincent Midnight) has no any connection to RUNWAY MAGAZINE ® – International High Fashion American-French Magazine worldwide known magazine, published by Media Group Eleonora de Gray since 1995.
This confusion has been created by the owner of this blog intentionally. And it is considered as parasitism according to international law. This isn’t a first illegal action of scam-artist Vincent Mazzotta. Due to multiple legal issues with different American and European companies all trademarks announced on these blogs: , , has been cancelled or suspended: trademark RUNWAY has been SUSPENDED and BANNED FROM EUROPE, ASIA and many other countries.
For trademark RUNWAY MAGAZINE, due to legal issue and Federal Court Order, Vincent Mazzotta, received CASE AND DESIST from USPTO trademark registration office :


CEASE AND DESIST publicly available here: permalink available in this system for the document.
Please search : 1058209 – Runway MagazineScroll down to the end to this line and click on pdf icon to open this document:
For trademark RUNWAY, due to another legal issue Vincent Mazzotta received total refusal and ban from Europe, China and many other countries. This document is publicly available here:


And after all Vincent Mazzotta is selling licences from the cancelled or abandoned trademarks, or trademarks which has nothing to do with the media or publishing, for example RUNWAY trademark which has ONLY activities in sport or health care :


This blog announced: “RUNWAY magazine official Worldwide Site fashion, beauty and celebrity news. Media Net Accredited News Agency. Celebrity Style from Hollywood.”. This is another scheme: Vincent Mazzotta announced on this blog that it is a printed magazine. This online magazine can be printed on demand like any other blog or any other online media from self-made pdf : . PDF of this blog freely distributed online on several platforms like Magzter. TV channel is another online blog on which users can see shared Mercedes youtube channel : .
For different cultural groups fetish fashion or sadomasochism could be considered as “Worldwide runway, fashion, beauty and celebrity news magazine. Celebrity Style from Hollywood.Runway TV.” But false advertising, misleading  and falsification are illegal. Vincent Mazzotta aka Vincent Midnight is involving in shootings young Hollywood actors in order to cover fetishist nature of his online media. Also to attract emerging designers to advertise on his blog he has to present his media as printed magazine with famous name “Runway”. Multiple issues of the designers who paid publicity on this online media as for fashion and NOT fetish or sadomasochist oriented media, or printed media has been addressed to Media Group Eleonora de Gray due to false publicity and confusion created by scam-artist Vincent Mazzotta.
One of the most discrete editorials published in this online media. Photographer Patrice Berchery for Runway blog :

History of RUNWAY ® magazine blog

Vincent Mazzotta owns “Bikini Ranch Boutique” in Scottsdale, Arizona. This is the only business address registered in Google, Yelp, and Yellow Pages. Apart from bikini, Vincent Mazzotta proposes services : massage, make up, hair styling, nails and tan. 4413 N Saddlebag Trail, Scottsdale, AZ 85251.


This is also headquarters of “Runway Media” – blog “RUNWAY ® MAGAZINE OFFICIAL – THE ONLY RUNWAY MAGAZINE HQ”, registered by Vincent Mazzotta:
Recently Vincent Mazzotta started to use for his HQ address of another store FOR THE STARS in Los Angeles, like it says on his facebook page, or applications. Indeed it is more fashionable : 7558 Melrose Ave Los Angeles CA 90046. This store belongs to Jacob – a well known shoe designer in Los Angeles. His wife takes care about artistic garments. Although not on the web-site FOR THE STARS, not in Yelp, or anywhere else mentioned partnership with blog RUNWAY of Vincent Mazzotta. Do the owners of this store actually aware that the address of their store used by Vincent Mazzotta in some of his communication as his headquarters?
On New applications Runway Lux and Runway Talent Vincent Mazzotta proposes the same services like he proposes in his Bikini Ranch boutique: massage, make up, hair styling, nails and tan. Although not this bikini boutique, not these services has link to publishing or fashion magazine, and specially not to RUNWAY MAGAZINE.
There’s no comment about an announce recently seen on his facebook page and his blog about hiring 100,000 “people” :


When in 2006 movie “Devil wears Prada” came out and had a great success Vincent Mazzotta decided to link his bikini boutique and massage services to high fashion RUNWAY MAGAZINE. During last 10 years it became an obsession.
3 companies in the world owns this name for decades and publish professional catalogs or fashion magazines :
Publisher in Canada, who’s producing shopping catalogs RUNWAY MAGAZINE and owns domain, distribute catalogs in the stores of Canada and USA. And who’s not presented online, apart a page with short discription.
Publisher in Italy CLOSE UP who produces catalogs for professionals RUNWAY, which includes all looks from all fashion weeks in the world, distributed worldwide.
Publisher in France ELEONORA DE GRAY who produces RUNWAY MAGAZINE, fashion magazine known worldwide and supported by Karl Lagerfeld, Jean Paul Gaultier, Mila Jovovich, Claudia Cardinale and many others. Official web-site
Vincent Mazzotta in 2010 decided to add to his registered trademark RUNWAY BEAUTY linked to his boutique bikini, nails and massage trademark RUNWAY for printed media with absolute confidence that he was the first one on the public name use, and the movie “Devil wears Prada” was about him. Unfortunately for Vincent Mazzotta to register a trademark USPTO demanded a proof of activities under this name, in this case – a published magazine, printed issues during 1 year.
Finally in 2012-2013 he managed to print 4 magazines, the only printed issues of Vincent Mazzotta, and in December 2013 register RUNWAY trademark.
And that’s how scam of trademark RUNWAY MAGAZINE started. Several international companies , including 3 publishers of RUNWAY pressed charges and started different legal procedures against him, to suspend his trademarks in USA, cancel them, and ban him from Europe and Asia.
As it became to known later bikini boutique owner Vincent Mazzotta is known for these actions : impersonation, defamation, trademark violations, fraud, parasitism, intentional creation of confusion with different businesses (including TV), identity theft, PC identity theft against individuals and different companies.
Please see PUBLICLY available link : see provided at the end multiple Federal Court cases dated 2005-2010. Our jurists CONFIRMED that this is not false information, these Federal Court Cases and Court Orders indeed exist in file of Vincent Mazzotta, and easy to be retrieved with assistance of a lawyer.


RUNWAY ® magazine blog today

For all mythomanes and criminals impersonation online became very easy thanks to multiple tools created by developers for Google bot (research robot) like keywords, descriptions, breadcrumbs, and snippets. Who needs to use scripts from Dark Net today to get best results to be on top of research? It’s absolutely enough to read couple of help pages to understand how it works plus several available SEO tools and you are “on top” within couple of weeks. And everybody will think that owner of bikini boutique is world known multimillionaire with billions of income.
It is obvious that rating of keywords like

“teen sex”

“crazy sex positions”

“ten sex positions”

is much higher in research than “fashion”, “haute couture” and so on. These are main keywords of Vincent Mazzotta for his blog “RUNWAY ® magazine official” , and this is the reason his blog is on top result on Google search. This page on his blog is most visited : Does it has to do anything with fashion or haute couture or trends? No.
You can check with different SEO profilers keywords of this blog:, .


For the 3d edition of pdf of RUNWAY ® magazine blog, freely distributed online, Julia Perry – a fashion stylist from Los Angeles brings her touch. She thinks that using name of famous RUNWAY MAGAZINE, so well presented in the movie, is extremely existing for her advantage, disparate of criminal past and present of her associate Vincent Mazzotta. She also doesn’t mind sadomasochist nature of this online media.


Nothing stopped this women to present herself as a fashion editor of famous “RUNWAY MAGAZINE” (she likes the name), despite the knowledge that she’s an apprentice of mythomane,  small boutique bikini and massage owner, sadomasochist, and con-artist Vincent Mazzotta, in a promotion of scam. “Fetish online media RUNWAY” won’t work the same way.
Nothing stopped her to engage the children of hip-hop stars, and specially autistic children like son of Toni Braxton to participate in this sadomasochist blog …
We can’t give any comment on this subject either…………………………..
It is very touching subject…. to make a shooting with an autistic child of hip hop star Toni Braxton for sadomasochist blog, to make him feel and rock, to confuse her and her son in the subject and nature of this online publication….. proposing to be PUBLISHED IN FAMOUS RUNWAY MAGAZINE… it is beyond of understanding. Photographer Kimberly Metz.


This article is written with no prejudice to Vincent Mazzotta, bikini boutique owner from Scottsdale, Arizona, and owner of sadomasochist oriented Runway blog , or any other mentioned companies or individuals.

James Buccelli's scam about RUNWAY MAGAZINE

In 2012 Eleonora de Gray has been contacted by James Anthony Buccelli from California who introduced himself as owner and publisher of Runway Magazine in USA and proposed cooperation and partnership. She accepted this proposition without knowledge that she got involved in scam. Later she discovered a legal issue between James Buccelli and Vincent Mazzotta (aka Vincent Midnight): James Buccelli started to use Runway Magazine name on public (facebook) as his blog / online media from 2008, Vincent Midnight was also interested to use this name on his online blog and social media, he published few mock up magazines, took few images from James Buccelli facebook page to present as his activities at registration in trademark office in Arizona, to receive registration class as published media. Legal battle between James Buccelli and Vincent Mazzotta (Midnight) after several years ended in favor of James Buccelli. Many materials were taken by Vincent Mazzotta from social media of James Buccelli and for registration of trademarks and James Buccelli proved it in Administrative Court. Vincent Mazzotta was obliged to give to James Buccelli an agreement where he gives his trademark "Runway Magazine" for use to James Buccelli. The agreement signed at the end of 2012. James Buccelli received the rights to register his Runway Magazine trademark in USA. In order to do so he has to prove his business activities under this name.
Apart from activities on social media networks and several parties under name Runway Magazine James Buccelli didn't have any proof of activities. He wanted to register his trademark as printed media. After research he found in New York printed issue of Runway Magazine by Eleonora de Gray and for that reason he proposed a partnership in order to use her production as his own. In his calculation New York and Paris where Eleonora de Gray had her production and business activities were far away from California, so his scam couldn't be discovered easily.

In 2014 Eleonora de Gray decided to stop all partnership with James Anthony Buccelli after discovering many unsolved legal issues, criminal records, and organized illegal activities like selling license of the trademark James Buccelli didn't own to company in Peru, involved companies in felony and fraud in order to receive financial profit from them, selling advertising in non-existed magazine etc., and specially after she discovered that James Buccelli used her production, her printed magazine in trademark registration office to register his own trademarks at the end of 2014.
Calling himself “self-made millionaire” or “oil tycoon” or “agricultural magnate” didn't help James Buccelli to save his reputation or to continue scheme called “RUNWAY MAGAZINE”.
James Buccelli registered his first Runway Magazine trademark in August 2014 by committing trademark fraud - he presented production of Media Group Eleonora de Gray as his own, as proof of activities under name RUNWAY MAGAZINE.
Multiple lawsuits against him in LA Federal Court for identity theft, felony and fraud from companies / people including Media Group Eleonora de Gray made him run from one hotel to another hunted by the police.
In August 2015 James Anthony Buccelli was arrested and procedure against him began. In April of 2016 he received 3 years in Federal Prison of California for identity theft, felony and fraud.
Extract of Federal Court Order:


Vincent Mazzotta's scam about RUNWAY MAGAZINE

Scam-artist Vincent Mazzotta announced publicly on his web-sites and social media networks that he is CEO and Editor-in-Chief of RUNWAY. He also published on one of his website that Eleonora de Gray dismissed from "OFFICIAL RUNWAY MAGAZINE ".
Message on web-site created by Vincent Mazzotta issued for disinformation  : “Eleonora DaGrey has been dismissed from RUNWAY's French division due to gross negligence in her contract. Eleonora is not authorized to act in behalf of RUNWAY in anyway. She has no legal rights of the name use. Anyone acting with her to commit Trademark fraud will be prosecuted in the full extent of WIPO law. ” - this message is disinformation, addressed to the owner of multiple RUNWAY trademarks, considered as parasitism, disparagement, denigration, interference against Media Group Eleonora de Gray in France and USA.

Trademarks of Vincent Mazzotta are also registered LATER than trademarks of Eleonora de Gray:
Runway Magazine December 17, 2013. He registered his first RUNWAY trademark in February 2014. And and due to multiple legal issues with American and European companies Vincent Mazzotta's trademark "Runway Magazine" has been CANCELLED internationally and in USA in 2015, and he received CASE AND DESIST from trademark USPTO attorney which confirmed that Vincent Mazzotta has no legal rights to use this name - NOT IN HIS PRODUCTION, NOT IN COMMUNICATION. This document is publicly available on WIPO / USPTO / INPI websites:

Another trademark of Vincent Mazzotta "RUNWAY" has been actually registered October 30, 2013 (at the same time as trademarks of Eleonora de Gray), REFUSED AND BANNED from registration internationally, and has been limited by territory of USA due to another legal issues with European and Asian companies. Today this trademark is also suspended by USPTO trademark office for illegal activities.

Vincent Mazzotta has NO printed magazine, and tries to pass as fashion magazine, using reputation of RUNWAY MAGAZINE produced by Media Group Eleonora de Gray, engaging young celebrities to do the cover shootings in order to keep his on-line media popular.
This online magazine can be printed on demand like any other blog or any other online media from self-made pdf :
No one really sees the content of his on-line editions unless contributors have to buy access online. Buying access could bring a discovery that in fact Vincent Mazzotta PRODUCES A PORNO / FETISH / SADO-MASOCHIST oriented blog / online magazine which distributes application on Google and Itunes.

RUNWAY ® MAGAZINE by Vincent Mazzotta aka Vincent Midnight:

Milivoje Batista de Oliveira's scam about RUNWAY MAGAZINE

Special details concerning "temporary contract" between Eleonora de Gray and Vincent Mazzotta:
In 2014 when Eleonora de Gray tried to find any possibilities for business partnership with Vincent Mazzotta and his partners, all proposals for different business models were refused for various reasons. Vincent Mazzotta and his business partners insisted to psychosis to sign any kind of contract with them, assuring in any possible way – that they are here to invest the company.
When the conditions of business partnership was not settled and “potential partners / investors” was insisting to have any contract with Media Group Eleonora de Gray, and reassuring in future great collaboration, the wisest decision was to sign temporary contract for 3 months and continue to discuss any possibilities for doing business together. No one knew that this temporary contract will be used like some sort of game-plan against company of Eleonora de Gray - to take her goodwill and place on the market.
After this contract was signed Vincent Mazzotta and his partners disappeared, giving all further communication to their “partner” in Europe Milivoje Batista de Oliveira from Zurich, Switzerland. But there was no any communication. No single mail or phone call was answered. Milivoje Batista de Oliveira proposed to the team of Media Group of Eleonora de Gray to work for him instead of Eleonora de Gray for higher payment and do magazine with him. He sent industrial spy to collect confidential documents of the company, including clients / partners lists - Emmanuel de Bourboulon. 


Press offices in Paris in May 2014 informed Eleonora de Gray about received emails and phone calls from person who called himself “Editor-in-Chief of Runway France” or “Editor-in-Chief of Runway French edition” Milivoje Batista de Oliveira, who said to them that Eleonora de Gray is fired and no longer work for Runway). And now he's new Editor-in-Chief. How desperate Milivoje Batista de Oliveira was to get to the fashion shows during Haute Couture fashion week in Paris or to get some pieces from press offices in Paris for shootings in non-existing Runway magazine.
After jurisdictional investigation Eleonora de Gray discoverd that Milivoje Batista de Oliveira is an owner of Vodka production company in Zurich, which he started in 2013, and promoting in the market by going from party to party in Zurich, Monaco and Paris with his vodka: LDV 1888, UNITED BRANDS OF SWITZERLAND ( Publicly he called his company in all possible fashion: LDV1888 (so it might sound like it was founded in 1888), or RUNWAY MEDIA NETWORK EUROPE, or RUNWAY FRANCE, or RUNWAY EUROPE.
His company never produced the magazines, or had any connection to media or publishing, or fashion. Couple of iphone videos from Milan catwalks doesn't make someone Editor-in-Chief of fashion magazine. Milivoje Batista de Oliveira produced few bottles of vodka in 1 year apart from different scheme. The main business of his company is multiple schemes: to take advantage of somehow known name, or attempts to take place in the market of one's company by calling to customers and partners with scheme about the owner.

We congratulate all of them for their achievements, and by this greeting to each and every of them we are announcing that RUNWAY MAGAZINE DOESN'T ASSOCIATED WITH:
criminals who convicted for years in Federal Prison for felony and fraud;
scammers and thieves who commit trademark frauds and steal copyrighted materials from different media;
producers of porno / fetish / sado-masochist fashion oriented media;
or any other crooks.
