Black Is The New Black?

What is going on in the magazine industry? I’m all for creative expression and being fashion forward, but why do magazines and the fashion industry feel the need for this ‘blackface’ trend? Remember Lara Stone’s controversial blackface editorial spread in French Vogue? And on Wednesday night, Tyra Banks whipped out some blackface makeup for a photo shoot where the shorties were portraying different races. Now V Magazine shot model Sasha Pivovarova in blackface posing opposite Heidi Mount. Not going to lie, the girl looks pretty black; but there are plenty of beautiful black models who they could have shot and would have used a lot less makeup. Dear fashion industry, pick a new controversial trend, please. Sincerely, everyone.
