That article is ridiculous but maybe I'm not that sensitive to things like others...

Thanks for that article.

Interesting article, I found it a good read. I didn't think anything of it when I saw the images, and still don't.
Thank you posting these wonderful covers Diorette.

Why would they? It doesn't have the same social and cultural implications.

I can definitely understand why it's causing outrage.
And it's coming after that 'Hey Hey it's Saturday' controversy.

But at the same time, I think any criticism should be discussed in the context of the whole editorial. I haven't personally tried to interpret the meaning behind it, but someone on Jezebel left a comment saying they felt this was more social commentary than racism, and while I don't know if that was the intentions of Carine, Klein & Co. it gave me a different way to think about it.

Quote:
This spread can be read as a commentary on the ambiguity of race. Notice the devolution of color and unity. The first model is meticulously painted and shot in stark black and white. By the end the photos are in full color and the model's paint is literally chipping off. This spread speaks to race's construction. It doesn't function to move us backward- it challenges the viewer to consider race by definition and critiques normalized whiteness. I understand the initial jerk reaction at a white model being painted black, but this spread does more than that. She is painted black. White. Given a red wig. Blue eyes. Red lips. Purple wings. Her appearance is obviously constructed in every way. This is not subtle racism. This is social commentary.

errant_pupil @ jezebel
I've also read some people saying that a black model should have been used for the editorial instead of Lara... but if the theme was the same, I think there would be just as much outrage over VP hiring a black model but painting her white.

^true. and we can't forget the main theme of the ed was lara herself...
i think that comment about it being a social commentary is really interesting, but i must confess that my interpretation, when i saw that ed, was quite shallow - for me it was just a way of exploring lara's versatility, and i thought the pictures were beautiful even though i'm not a klein fan. i didn't find the play of (skin) colours outrageous, and i didn't even realized there could be a deep and logical social meaning behind it. it's interesting that this ed has caused such reaction while no one said anything about that numéro ed with r'el dade...

LOVE this issue so much. It's ridiculously beautiful and high class.

Kate keeps getting flack but I love her. I love that we are watching her grow older. She has nearly unmatched beauty and still is a cultural icon. I hope we continue to see more of her for a long time to come.
