Carine Defends Blackface Editorial

| Filed under: FrancophiliaSpread 'EmVogueLara StoneCarine Roitfeld


Carine Roitfeld may be out at French Vogue, but she's still defending her work.

In an interview with WWD, she finally addressed that controversial blackface editorial from last year's October issue.

Say Carine:

"I’m not saying I don’t get letters from people who are unhappy, but you can’t please everyone, and we take risks. Painting Lara Stone in black, for example. We were accused of being racist, which was totally untrue, since I once did an entire issue on a black model [Liya Kebede in May 2002]."

Umm OK, but that still doesn't make it right.
