Vogue Italia apologized for the cover on Instagram and Gigi apologized on twitter

She didn't look 'black' at all to me on the cover.. She did look bad though.

I've seen worse by Steven Klein. That Lara Stone editorial in 2009...

^Apologized for what? For photoshopping Gigi too much?
I have just came across few comments stating that there is a black face. Have you ever seen a black face? This is getting ridiculous.

I feel like I’ve seen versions of this cover going around that are photoshopped to make her look much darker than the cover actually is.

Also is it just me or does she look like Ruth Negga in the photo?

A form of black face, and very offensive.

The "issue" about this is more ridiculous than the cover itself, and this cover is pretty ridiculous.

OMG, these "controversies", lol. Just when you think it can't get any more absurd, it does. Are white people still allowed to tan, or is that now frowned upon too?

Like the vid, but I still miss those cool clips by Gordon Von Steiner.

Kim Kardashian did appear on the cover of Interview Magazine looking really dark and no one said a thing. Gigi just looks tanned to me and there's nothing 'controversial' about it. Why apologize? So that means they actually did try blackface huh? But it's still a bad cover anyway. There are many other models who could work this concept better than Gigi.

I don't think so, Patti Wilson released a personal statement on her Instagram with no apologies but rather standing her ground. She explained her intentions and what else do you need.

A quote from the statement,

"It's a summer issue. It's a swimwear story. Gigi is meant to look bronze, tan and gorgeous. Nothing more than that."

It's just probably damage control.

My issue here is how Gigi looks like she got electrocuted then you've got that high voltage tagline to go with it. It gives me a wrong turn of fashion fantasy.

I like it somehow, if only because it´s not an indie shot... the leg is very distracting though.
