L’Officiel Hommes Brings Blackface Back

Oh no, not again!

L’Officiel Hommes is keeping the blackface trend alive in their latest issue that features a 13 page tacky spread of a heavily painted model shot by the mag’s editor-in-chief Milan Vukmirovic.

Once again, we’re left asking why they couldn’t hire a black model, rather than awkwardly painting this model.

We’d say this is just a French thing since French Vogue did a similar shoot last year. But V Magazine is also guilty of being racially insensitive.

Sad sad.

Thoughts???
