Looks like Vogue Italia has found itself in hot water yet again.
Back in January, the magazine stirred controversy for segregating its street style photos, and now Vogue Italia is getting major backlash for publishing a spread titled "Abracadabra" in its March 2014 issue. The photos feature Dutch model Saskia de Brauw in face paint to darken her skin posing next to taxidermied African animals.
The photos were shot by industry veteran Stephen Meisel, and this definitely isn't the first time a fashion magazine has published blackface photos. Last May, Vogue Netherlands caused controversy for its "Heritage Heroes" spread featuring white model Querelle Jansen (also Dutch) posing in blackface.
