^ I don't think there's any valid excuse they can give for that editorial. But I'm sure we'll hear some of the typical "blackface doesn't have the same meaning in Europe" BS we always hear when there are disgusting racist editorials like those.

Nadja's editorial is superb, I love the energy she's showing.

Thank you, Mat Cyruss for posting all the editorials

How can anyone think that was a good idea? Why would Numero publish something so tacky? It's nonsense really.

Oh I really want to like La Couture Enchantée, but almost every photo, there is just something that doesn't look natural. The clothes are gaspingly beautiful, the setting is lovely (albeit a tad cliche), and Natalia is such a soft beauty. But maybe it's a combination of some of the posing, the photoshop or something else I can't quite put my finger on that really makes the photos look artifical (less like a dreamy fantasy and more like a forest backdrop and couture clothing). Oh well, I'd still love to see it all in print which might change my mind

"African Queen" is such a WTF title, "Tan Mom" would have been the better choice
Poor Ondria

I just don't get the point of making an editorial called "African Queen" and booking a caucasian girl with tacky Jersey Shore tan. Is it really that hard to book an actual black girl?

This issue is fantastic, i'm in love with Stam and natalia's edit, they should choose one of these shots for the cover, the 3 that they choosed are very boring.

A big WTF at African Queen. Sometimes fashion is such a joke.

When did Natalia become so boring?

But this issue is still amazing, I love all the editorials.
