The internet has EXPLODED over the new Vogue photoshoot featuring Kendall Jenner with a so-called ‘afro’!
For the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” reality star, it’s not the first time she’s been bashed in the media for a similar campaign regarding cultural appropriation.
She’s pictured again with a more “crimped out” version of the ‘fro next to Dutch Moroccan/Egyptian model Imaan Hammam and as a woman of colour, you’d think by re-posting the image herself she clearly doesn’t see an issue.
Now, we don’t know about you but… we don’t think this is a fro.
THIS is a fro.
And what a beautiful ‘fro that is.
In a statement obtained by E! News, Vogue said,
“The image is meant to be an update of the romantic Edwardian/Gibson Girl hair which suits the period feel of the Brock Collection, and also the big hair of the ’60s and the early ’70s, that puffed-out, teased-out look of those eras. We apologize if it came across differently than intended, and we certainly did not mean to offend anyone by it.”
And if we look back at the history of the Edwardian/Gibson girl era of hair, we think it’s pretty spot on to Jenner’s shoot.
Sure, the Kardashian’s have CERTAINLY got it wrong in the past.
But, having a look through Vogue’s Instagram, it’s clear they aren’t afraid of portraying and embracing different body shapes, cultural backgrounds and genders.
But what do you think? Have they crossed the line here? Or are you all for the Jenner Edwardian look? Let us know in the comments!
