Adut Akech is among the most in-demand fashions proper now. She scored a grand whole of 4 Vogue September covers (together with Japan, British, Germany and Italy) and walked in a number of exhibits throughout trend month. So we aren’t in any respect stunned to see Adut make a grand return to the quilt of Vogue Japan. This time the present face of Miu Miu, Zara, Bottega Veneta, Valentino and Missoni is decked out in Comme des Garçons (courtesy of Sissy Vian) for the November 2019 providing photographed by Albert Watson.
However our discussion board members had some severe questions. “I’m getting racist undertones, like the styling is meant to make her face disappear or something. I don’t know, it’s making me uncomfortable,” voiced kokobombon immediately.
“Not intended to offend anyone, but why does this remind me of a racist cult?” requested phungnam96.
“It looks like an inverse color shot of the Ku Klux Klan,” added tigerrouge.

Phuel shared the identical sentiment: “This very dark shadow on shadow imagery is one of Albert’s gorgeous signature styles, but sadly doesn’t work here. Admittedly, dressing a Black model in a large, pointy hood is a tad tone-deaf. But their fashion director is pretty much tone-deaf when it comes to any semblance of style.”
“Adut’s face is sublime and Watson is one of my all-time favorite photographers. But this stylist should be thrown into a volcano,” said dfl-001.
Not everybody was offended, nonetheless. “I like it, very witchy! Bring on Halloween,” proclaimed russianelf.
“I guess I am the only one here who likes it,” mentioned Ed..
