Chanel's Latest Ad Campaign Appropriates Bantu Knots & Cornrows

| Filed under: Marc JacobsKarl LagerfeldHairstylesAd CampaignsChanelControversy

Karl Lagerfeld puts Bantu knots on white models.

Fashion designers continue to be obsessed with putting black hairstyles on white models.

Karl Lagerfeld is the latest culprit in the new Chanel S/S 2017 ads starring model Arizona Muse with her hair styled in Bantu knots and cornrows.

Back in 2015 Marc Jacobs sent models down the runway in Bantu knots, and just last year put them all in dreadlocks, to much backlash.

But it's obvious the fashion world continues to turn a blind eye to the many people who have repeatedly called them out for taking traditionally black styles and putting them on white models, without properly crediting black culture for giving them the ideas in the first place.

At this point we wonder if they'll ever learn.

And we'd just like to add that, at the very least, Mr. Lagerfeld could've chosen a black model for this campaign.

Kim Kardashian is covered in jelly!

Between launching her new KIMOJI Instagram and popping up at a holiday party this week, Kim Kardashian West is slowly making her way back into the spotlight.

And yet, the reality TV star continues to have friends taking over her app and website.

On Thursday, Carine Roitfeld shared her own write-up in a throwback post to celebrate Kimmy's pregnant CR Fashion Book spread from 2013!

Sharing a possibly slightly embarrassing pic of Kanye West's other half (above) covered in jelly alongside herself, Karl Lagerfeld, and Riccardo Tisci, the famous Parisian wrote:

"Our first shoot with Kim Kardashian West was for the cover of CR 3—an issue filled with rule-breakers and muses who inspired creativity and hope. To me, it was the start of a true friendship with Kim and her beautiful family. To the world, I think Kim became a true muse, and perhaps a true friend too."

Hopefully all the kind words about this Kardashian will lure her out of hiding.
