Becky With The Bronzer: Gigi Hadid Blames Heavy Handed Vogue Italia MUA & Photographer For Blackface Cover
A Vogue Italia cover is getting dragged across the Atlantic ocean for allowing Gigi Hadid to appear 17 shades darker on it. After social media backlash, Hadid did issue an apology, although the final product appeared to have been out of her control.
The shoot’s photographer Steven Klein has been under fire before, for publishing photos of models in actual blackface. Like here:
In her lengthy apology, Gigi explained that she did wear bronzer during the shoot, however the extreme darkening of her face was done in photoshop, something she would have never consented to.
Commendable that Hadid did take the initiative to apologize. However, this isn’t the first time that Vogue and Gigi have been accused of the latter. What’s up with that?
