Okay, really? This is really still happening???
Apparently Vogue Netherlands missed the multiple memos that blackface is never okay, because they are the latest guilty party.
The publication ran a spread in their May issue honoring Marc Jacobs and in a poor attempt to pay homage to his 2008-2009 muses Grace Jones and Josephine Baker they painted model Querelle Jansen's face black.
This is just wrong.
Wouldn't it have just been easier to hire an African American model?
