Vogue Italia

Time and time again, we’ve seen the classic adage, “Black don’t crack,” get put to the test. Needless to say that the aforementioned compliment applies to actress Taraji P. Henson, who appears in a Vogue Italia pictorial shoot.

Erykah Badu will have plenty of opportunities to display her quirky style as the new face of Givenchy. In fact, the platinum selling songstress sported the upcoming Riccardo Tisci Air Force 1 with an ensemble of audacious pieces in a spread for Vogue Italia.

Vogue Italia obviously likes stirring up controversy for the sake of being European and avant-garde, and their latest photo shoot which depicts white models in tribal-inspired blackface has no qualms in crossing the line.
