New Interview Magazine Spread Called Racist?!


Bloggers and online commenters are calling Interview‘s “Let’s Get Lost” spread racist; Daria Werbowy poses wearing grease and designer clothing as the white model in a sea of non-white models. Refinery 29 writes:

From the differences in their dress (Daria’s in ethereal, angel-like gowns, the others are in knits and leathers) to their body language (A limp yet super-sexual Daria is the main focus, the others feel almost like props), the whole spread has a rather racist vibe that we can’t get down with.

Another commenter, on the blog Fashin, said the black models come off as “blackcessories.” Interview hasn’t responded for repeated requests for  a comment.

What do you think?
