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???

But, but, but…Lindsay Lohan was supposed to be a big help to OWN!
We’re not sure WHAT is wrong with America to not watch last night’s big debut of Lindz’s show on Oprah Winfrey’s network, but these numbers don’t lie!
LiLo’s ratings were far from phenomenal!
The first episode of Lindsay earned only 693,000 viewers!
And while that’s the best unscripted premiere for the cable station in 2014, it’s not even close to their biggest show so far.
Lohan’s docu-series comes in third in the demo behind Iyanla: Fix My Life and Life with La Toya!
Oof. Beat by La Toya Jackson?
We’re not sure if that’s a great way to start. But OWN network prexy Erik Logan tried to put a positive spin on Lindsay’s first night, saying:
Whoa! Check out that bling!
Lorde has got the rumor mill turning when she emerged from her hotel room last week with a pretty big ring on THAT finger!
Which got everyone asking…did her boyfriend, James Lowe, pop the question?
Is she destined to be a teenage bride?
The answer is a resounding no.
Her rep said:
We doubt Kevin Federline is enjoying this as much as we are!
Britney Spears attended her son Jayden's soccer match this past Sunday in LA, but it was who Brit-Brit was seen with on the sidelines that had our attention!
The pop diva was spotted sitting next to Kevin Federline's pregnant wife Victoria Prince where the two were conversing, and laughing, and looking like they were having a great time!
Britney's boyfriend David Lucado was also there, and so was Kevin, and those two are apparently friends, too!
But the real focus was on Britney and the VERY pregnant Victoria as they hung out together along with Victoria and Kevin's two-year-old daughter Jordan. We wonder what, or who, they were talking about?
We know who our first guess would be! LOLz!

Looks like she IS penning a book!
Rumors were swirling up the wazoo that Lindsay Lohan was getting a book deal, and it looks like the tell-all is actually gonna happen!
If she can stay committed, that is!
Esteemed publishing house HarperCollins is ready to offer LiLo a one MILLION dollar deal to turn the journal she kept during her stint in rehab into a book!
It's not official yet, but apparently the book is set to be extremely autobiographical and will detail her descent from child superstar to a rehabbed, struggling actress.
So, if watching LiLo break down and cry isn't your style, then don't worry!
You'll soon be able to read ALLLLLL about her intentions and imagine the problems that go on in LiLo world!
