Fashion Designer Allesandro Dell’Acqua and more Wear Blackface to African Themed ‘Disco Africa’ Halloween Party
By Claire

Y’all, it is 2013. 2013!!!!
Why is this stuff still happening?

Last night, for a Halloween party with a ‘Disco Africa’ theme, several Italian fashion insiders, including designer Allesandro Dell’Acqua, came in blackface. Here he is, posing below with Stefano Gabbana (of Dolce & Gabbana) and Juan Fran Sierra.

The fête was documented by Russian photographer Zhanna Romashka, who put a slew of party pictures on her blog OnlyStylishPeople.it.
See a few more ‘artistic’ interpretations of Africa below:

Blackface is antiquated, has been deemed controversial across the board, and is racially insensitive. It is steeped in a negative history, pointing back to a time in American history when blacks were considered 3/5th of a human being–unfit to represent themselves, so white actors took the lead (at first), painting their skin brown and propagating some of the most pernicious and dehumanizing stereotypes of black people at the time (minstrel shows characterized blacks as lazy, superstitious, and buffoonish).

Blackface

Do fashionable Italians live in a bubble? It would seem so. The uproar over Blackface in fashion has been constant and consistent ever since Carine Roitfeld painted Lara Stone brown for Paris Vogue. The enduring message: this is not ok!

That this whole party was full of people in blackface shows a startling predomination of ignorance, abetted by fashion designers and insiders we admire. We are not moving forward people, we are moving backwards.

My level of disgust grows by the second... I just don't understand the "need" to do these things.

i wonder if whats lurking underneath is really a gay vs. black cold war.  similar to the way fashion industry (gay men) waged a silent war on women.

The obsession is real.
 Wish all you want. You can't be black, not just like that. Nope. It's a divine gift. Go pray to your maker; then maybe in the NEXT life. But not today.Tongue
