French Vogue Does Blackface

Yikes! Well if French Vogue wanted some attention, they sure did get it. For this month's supermodel issue, French Vogue decided to paint supermodel Lara Stone in blackface makeup; instead of just using a black model...hhhmmmm. Not only that, the magazine and French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld praised Lara Stone for the "radical break with the wave of anorexic models." Well she's only a size 4. And although that's bigger than a size 0, it's not much of a difference. And as they praised Lara for her breakthough as an over-the-size-zero model, French Vogue included models who would be exclaimed as anorexic or most likely a size zero: Kate Moss, Kristen McMenamy, Yasmin Le Bon, Eva Herzigova, Caludia Schiffer, Anna Selezna, Diane Kruger, Constance Jabolski and Eniko Mihalik. Well, thanks for trying to include everyone, but I think you failed French Vogue.

  1. This is disturbing, there are black models available, whom also are a "radical break with the wave of anorexic models".
