This is just wrong.

After seeing this Vogue Paris spread, we’re getting flashbacks to that Hey Hey It’s Saturday racially insensitive TV skit.

Dutch model Lara Stone was featured in October’s Vogue Paris in blackface. The spread was shot by American photographer Steven Klein and styled by Vogue Paris’ editor-in-chief Carine Roitfeld.

What’s inneresting is the October issue is dedicated to “supermodels”, but there are NO Africa American models featured in the mag’s pages.

We’re not sure how they got away with doing this shoot even if the country has different views on racism, but they will not doubt be getting some backlash now.

We do however feel bad for the model, seeing as she probably had no control over the shoot’s styling.
