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???

Counterfeit things you hear about regularly: counterfeit money, counterfeit designer bags, counterfeit high-end watches…the list goes on.
And now you can add counterfeit beauty products to that list!
A MASSIVE counterfeit beauty product ring was recently busted for selling fake products under brand names. To get a sense of the size and scale of this operation, reports claim authorities seized over $2 MILLION in products — and that’s only the stuff they could immediately get their hands on!!
Investigators are still looking into bank accounts to ascertain the scale of the operation, which was run by brothers Pardeep Malik (age 59) and Hamant Mullick (age 60).
District Attorney Kathleen Rice released a statement on the seriousness of the matter, saying:
Taylor Swift has made a wise choice to have Lorde on her side…
Because the Royals singer will defend her friend against shizz-stirrers to the death!
The Grammy-winning songstress was interviewed by The Kyle & Jackie Show on Australia's KIIS 1065 today and got extremely defensive when asked about her blooming friendship with Swifty.
DJ Kyle Sandilands asked the 17-year-old about their relationship in the most cringe-worthy way possible, including lesbian undertones - and even bringing Ellen DeGeneres into the mix:
Will you excuse us for one quick sec? We just need to vomit after hearing this latest update on George Zimmerman.
The man who shot and killed unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin was the featured guest at a Central Florida gun show over the weekend.
Fans - he has FANS?! - of the 30-year-old stood their own ground while they LINED UP to meet him and get an autograph!
Keep in mind, the ONLY reason Zimmerman is a celebrity is because he killed someone. And people actually want a signed photo of this guy?
Why? WHY?! A million times, WHY?!
According to George, this was his way of returning a favor to an Orlando gun store that supported him during his murder trial. He explained:

This just breaks our heart.
Charlotte Waters, a young woman who modeled for Terry Richardson, has mustered up the courage to share the extremely personal and traumatizing experience she claims she had with the celebrity photographer at age 19.
According to her account, she was completely taken advantage of and left helpless and stunned after a single photo shoot. Due to her episode with Terry, she never modeled nude again.
Many find it shocking that the fashion industry continually employs a photographer with a reputation as revolting as Richardson’s. They also find it even more shocking that so many celebrities seem to endorse him.
We have to assume the celebs who do are unaware of what he's accused of doing to unsuspecting victims. But with more and more women coming forward, that assumption begins to lose its strength.
If you can stomach it, relive Charlotte’s horrifying experience through her firsthand account, after the jump
