Let’s focus on the cover, first! It’s one of the rare, beautiful sights of a black model on a magazine cover! Yay for that! Elle Canada’s July 2011 issue puts gorgeous Herieth Paul to fight a battle that is not legit or moral. Models are not supposed to fight each other, nor are they censed to retire just because a younger face joins their agency (or another) (see the cover tagline, at left).
Herieth Paul as photographed by John van der Schilden is perfect as she is, they needed not retouch her beyond (armpit) recognition. And my, oh my, does that “Move over Naomi” tagline sounds wrong? In so many ways, I barely scratched the surface with the above (not to mention the already famous Cadbury case…) What’s your take on the matter? (via)
