Vogue Italia has definitely not learned its lesson from past mistakes.
But maybe the mag doesn't view them as mistakes, otherwise why would they keep making the same ones over and over again?
The March issue of the magazine features white model Saskia de Brauw in what can only be described as some type of "tribal" face paint.
Inside the spread, the Dutch model poses with stuffed animals in clothing meant to mimic "tribal-style" dress, including warp skirts and turbans, except that instead of being made from animal hide, the clothing is Chanel and Celine!
We're thinking Vogue Italia was definitely going for another inspired-by-indigenous-cultures editorial, which is problematic in many ways, especially because it fetishizes native cultures, and appropriates them in order to construct an "edgy" fashion story while ignoring the history of imperialism and oppression that plagued those very places where Vogue's editors are now drawing inspiration from.
It's baffling how the fashion world just keeps on promoting such offensive and insensitive material over and over again.
When will they learn???

She looks anything but sad!
Katy Perry and her boyfriend John Mayer called it quits last week, but the singer knows better than most that life goes on!
That meant dressing up in a dinosaur-themed ensem for her Tokyo arrival on Saturday!
The Dark Horse singer wore a matching dinosaur-print sweater and skater skirt, along with gold toed platform shoes, Ray-Ban sunglasses, and a coral Celine handbag.
Just look at those legs!
It’s kind of kitschy, but no one pulls of novel ensems like this lady!
Eat your heart out, Mr. Mayer!

It must’ve been a long, lonely few days for Kim Kardashian when her future hubby was on tour without her!
But as soon as Kanye West was back in NY, the two were nearly inseparable — after holding hands in public on Thursday, Kimye PDAed even more over the weekend!!
They grabbed lunch at ABC Kitchen on Saturday, where both parties indulged in a hand sandwich. Kim also looked wondrous in a beige Celine coat, a pure white dress, and nude Tom Ford sandals!
The very next day, the darling duo were spotted being seksi in SoHo. Kimmy’s style wasn’t quite as impressive as it was the day before, but she did her best in a blush-colored coat, a fuzzy scarf, a black top and pants, and finally some ankle-strap heels.
Kanye kept things simple and wore similar outfits on both days, but tell us which style you prefer …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
She’s a babe in black!
Kim Kardashian was spotted flying into London Heathrow airport over the weekend, and she was dressed in black from head to toe!!
She rocked a pitch black double-breasted Celine coat, which she paired with a black top, pants, and boots.
The only non-black aspect about the entire outfit was her white and taupe Hermes bag — even her shades were totes blacked out!
Kind of morose, but not bad for an airport-chic look!

Well, this is much more like the Kylie Jenner we know!
The 16-year-old found a more age appropriate ensem to wear to get her nails done at a salon in WeHo on Thursday.
Rockin’ a blue Topshop skirt with her fave kind of hem, a Celine purse, and a Givenchy rottweiler tank, Kylie’s outfit was literally ferosh!
She definitely looked like she didn't want to be messed with. LOLz!
Especially including the dark shades and killer black Balenciaga boots.
Hey, and her newly done black and white nails aren't half bad either!

Growing up so fast!
We've never seen Kylie Jenner look so mature before! Can you believe she's only 16???
This is an outfit much more fit for her older sisters, or her mom!
The teenager was extremely dressed-up during a visit to Urth Caffe in West Hollywood on Wednesday, looking uber chic in a two-toned MaxMara jumpsuit and Isabel Marant wool coat slung over her shoulders like Kim loves to do.
Her expensive accessories, including a Celine purse and lace-up Louboutins, put her firmly in ladies-who-lunch territory.
Fabulous, but not very age-appropriate!

We didn't even have to wait long!
Lena Dunham's rumored Vogue cover, shot by Annie Leibovitz, is a total reality, and we like what we see!
The actress and writer's February issue is perfectly quirky and cute just like her, featuring the 27-year-old with a dazed look on her face on the front of the mag, and wearing a feathered Alexander McQueen dress with a pigeon on her head in the spread!
Hilarious and awesome!
Hannah Horvath does get a few chances to look totally glam though, as she wears a strapless Prada dress while lying on a bed with her dog and onscreen boyfriend Adam Driver, and again when posing on a balcony in a Celine coat.
She also talks about some fashion faves, since this is, after all, a fashion mag. Lena said:
