Is This Blackface???

Really?

The newest issue of Numero is stirring up a whole lot of controversy with an editorial featuring Constance Jablonski.

Constance, who is white, got made up in blackface a la Lara Stone in last year’s October issue of Vogue Paris and Claudia Schiffer‘s Stern Fotografie cover.

Some people have argued that the model was just over-bronzed, but when you mix that with the afros and baby it’s hard to say this wasn’t intentional.

If they wanted a black model, they should have hired Jourdan Dunn or Chanel Iman. Instead they do something like this that clearly shows how far they’ll go to NOT hire a woman of color.
