and to think there are so many young photographers/stylists out there with talent who actually have a point of view and something to say, and meisel/lori goldstein get pages and pages in vogue italia to publish this crap. These magazines really need to do some work to dig up fresh talent. This is a hot mess!

So happy for Joan, I think she could really be a major cross-over star like Liya with a makeup contract, etc...

Here's a nice quote from someone on Jezebel discussing the issue.
Quote:
"...dismissing racism is an easy way to avoid something we are not comfortable with because it is easier than thinking critically or trying to understand something, regardless of how we feel about it."
I can understand if people don't see how this is racially insulting/insensitive but telling people who are genuinely bothered by it to 'lighten up" is as patronizing as the tasteless photos. Both sides have made valid points that I'm glad were discussed. I just hope this has at least opened some eyes to the issue.

I'm loving the others ads of this issue but the I don't know if I can bring myself to buy this... Especially not for $20.

I am more bothered that they took exact looks from people they found on the internet and copied them without even editting. It is not like they took inspiration from the culture......they just blantantly copied it. Was the very opposite of creative.

This is clearly racist. I picked up on that the moment I saw it and I'm just now discovering other people think so too.

What a mess "Haute Mess" turned out to be. The concept is offensive and the execution is poor, such a flop editorial. Meisel should've known better... but then again, I am not surprised, tbh.

Emmas edit is the best thing about this issue thus far, everything about it is magical, Kelly looks amazing wouldve been even better if the whole edit was her, Mackenzie really wasnt needed imo

I thought it was mocking drag queens at first, but i think the girls look amazing. Girls who dress like that in real-life look awesome! I personally dont have a problem with it because Trash glamour has always had some strange appeal to me, but to each their own.

To be fair, I don't really have a problem with the main editorial, apart from it's trashy, over the top and pretty crap, but I take it for what it is.
I love the colours in Emma Summerton's editorial and Mackenzie looks great, but Kelly Mittendorf scares the living daylights out of me. Such a bizarre looking girl and so not model material.
