Vogue Netherlands Honors Marc Jacobs With Blackface

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?

Apparently not.

Thoughts???

Terry Richardson and Jimmy Choo Team Up!

This is like the Summer of Terry Richardson.

The photog’s work is everywhere you look and now he shot an ad for Jimmy Choo!

Set in a Rolls-Royce Phantom V’s backseat, the models posed in a late Sixties inspired shoot. Richardson adopted the point-of-view of a paparazzi looking in on the luxe rockers, who were styled after Mick Jagger and Marianne Faithful.

Sandra Choi and Simon Holloway, creative directors of the brand, said they were trying to:

“Capture the innocent and glamorous spirit of the late Sixties, the joy of dressing up in eclectic rock ’n’ roll style, of feeling cool and going out.”

Modeled by Querelle Jansen and Jonas Kessler, the ads will first be featured in the British and American August issues of Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar, so keep your eyes out!
