Magazine Madness: FRENCH VOGUE HAS TO CHILL!
Ok Ok OK the fashion master minds are taking it a bit far now.
In the October Issue of French Vogue you will flip to see very disturbing pictures of a white model with a "blackface"- this is not art- it’s TASTELESS AND TACKY.
I normally keep my opionions to myself, and do not get all political... but this raised my eyebrow!!!
This is nothing but a desperate call for readers. Whatever happened to creating beautiful Photo Shoots and stimulating articles? Painting a white woman’s face and saying it’s art is absolutely ridiculous.
Some people may look at as art but it’s definitely all wrong!!!!
If you wanted to portray a black model- USE A BLACK MODEL! LOL
This is a magazine known for their controversial spreads…
There is a huge lack of opportunity for black models these days- and this article further confirms this. It sends the wrong message for black models, and black french models. It suggests that "we" are not good enough- I wonder if the whole issue have any black models in it?? I will never purchase a copy- but I do want to take a browse to see..
The French doesn’t share the same history as in the Unitied States, but there is no excuse.
Carine Roitfeld (The French Anna Wintour) should be on time out- sat in the corner with one of those “stupid” cone hats on!!
It’s not even a beautiful shot the fits SUCK!!
What do you think readers- fellas chime in- I want to hear your thoughts as well.
These are my thoughts- and I'm entitled to my opinion- and so are you! :)
