French Vogue does a black issue and then does an editorial in blackface? There's no excuse at all really for the insensitivity or ignorance that this displays. Like they said over at Jezebel, as an American, photog Steven Klein should have seen a red flag to the shaky ground that need not be charted.
If not Klein, Roitfeld and co. should have thought something of a whole issue without any black models, save for the one in blackface...I'm sorry. That doesn't count...and we're not amused.
NOTE: Then later in the shoot, they go from a studio to a location and paint her white, which gets all cracked and gross. Blah! See the rest here.
