Claudia Schiffer Goes Black For A Magazine Cover

Tongues are wagging after a photo of Claudia Schiffer made up as a black woman with dark foundation and an afro wig appeared on the cover of a German magazine this month. The image, along with six others of Schiffer dressed as various characters, including an Asian woman, were shot by renowned fashion designer and photographer Karl Lagerfeld for a Dom Perignon advertising campaign. Some argue this shot is tasteless and offensive given how few minority women are actually featured in mainstream magazines, as well as comparisons it draws with minstrel shows. Schiffer’s representatives claim the pictures have been taken out of context and were “designed to reflect different men’s fantasies.” What do you think: arty or offensive? [via Daily Mail]
