Love it or hate it, Naomi’s I-D cover with Stefano Pilati isn’t one to overlook. Inez and Vinoodh really done an outstanding job.
There’s still one tiny problem – isn’t this the same YSL’ Stefano Pilati who revealed to the world why fashion doesn’t go black anymore? Let me have a bit of remember the times: “To me, it is a matter of proportions and the bodies I choose. My fit model was a black model. When I wanted to translate what I put on her, it was a disaster. It would need 13 times more work in the atelier to modify it to put on a more Caucasian anatomy. Sometimes, it’s not your choice. You can’t find “black models” that are beautiful and with the right proportions. I prefer them with lean proportions with no big hips.” (two more pictures follow right after the jump!)
Embracing him on the I-D August Cover, it’s an act of supreme forgiveness from militating Naomi. She’s trying to get us to forgive and forget? Or she’s just making peace with the devil for a $ suitcase?
