Naomi Campbell lands the cover of Numero Russia premiere issue, wearing a black blazer and black heels, photographed by Sebastian Kim. Photographer Sebastian Kim has recently received back lash for an editorial title “African Queen” featuring American model Ondria Hardin (Ford) who’s skin was heavily darkened with make up. Read Sebastian’s response to the backlash below.
“ I would like to apologize for any misunderstanding around my recent photos for Numero France. It was never my intention (nor Numero’s) to portray a black woman in this story. Our idea and concept for this fashion shoot was based on 60′s characters of Talitha Getty, Verushka and Marissa Berenson with middle eastern and Moroccan fashion inspiration. We at no point attempted to portray an African women by painting her skin black. We wanted a tanned and golden skin to be showcased as part of the beauty aesthetic of this shoot.
It saddens me that people would interpret this as a mockery of race. I believe that the very unfortunate title “African Queen” (which I was not aware of prior to publication) did a lot to further people’s misconceptions about these images. It was certainly never my intention to mock or offend anyone and I wholeheartedly apologize to anyone who was offended.
