  • French Designer Accused of Racist Casting Just Showed a 90 Percent White Runway

    Bella Hadid, second in line, walks the runway during the Lanvin show during Paris Fashion Week on March 1. During Paris Fashion Week, design house Lanvin presented its fall/winter 2017 collection, featuring delicate silks evoking “ballerina black tie,” according to New York Times fashion director Vanessa Friedman. But praise for the collection was clouded in criticism — not of the clothing, but of who wore it. Amid harsh criticism by veteran casting director James Scully, who accused Lanvin‘s team of excluding diverse models, the house presented a collection in which four of 44 models were nonwhite, among them Yue Han, Luping Wang, Joan Smalls, and Alicia Burke.

    It’s hard to believe that Joan Smalls would have a hard time booking a hair campaign. Joan Smalls has graced the cover of several fashion magazines, walked the runway for some of the industry’s most celebrated design houses, collaborated with brands on beauty and fashion projects, and is among the elite group of models included in several Victoria’s Secret Fashion Shows. “I’ve been an option, but they dropped me last minute, and the excuse was ‘We were afraid to try something new,’ and by ‘new,’ they mean, ‘We never shot a black girl,'” said Smalls, who typically wears her hair straight.

Hadid and Smalls both took to social media to share the sexy image, which pictures the trio stark naked, save for a pair of Stuart Weitzman sandals, all looking very serene in a three-way embrace, which is probably a great way to keep warm while posing in the nude.

    H&M’s new summer 2015 campaign video isn’t your typical, models-hanging-out-on-the-beach-in-bikinis commercial. It’s more like an action movie—think Charlie’s Angels with a dash of James Bond—that ends up being a models-hanging-out-on-the-beach-in-bikinis commercial. So maybe… never mind about that first part. 

  • Joan Smalls Talks True Religion, Being Name Dropped by Kanye, & Her Proud Puerto Rican Heritage
