What’s the Point?: Is Vogue Italia’s “Haute Mess” Issue Offensive?

March 9, 2012  |  

From StyleBlazer.com.

Just a few weeks ago, we were celebrating the fact that Vogue Italia was featuring Joan Smalls, a model of color, on the cover of this month’s issue, the first woman of color to grace the magazine after four years.

Turns, out we may have to take that praise right back because the actual “Haute Mess” spread is a bit stereotypical at best. Looking at the pictures, which seem like they could come straight out of the movie “BAPS”, you just have to wonder, what messages was Vogue Italia trying to send?

Check out the pics at StyleBlazer.com and let us know what you think.

Are these images too much?
