Claudia Schiffer In Blackface And Afro Wig..Karl You Should Know Better

Jason Campbell

This image of Claudia Schiffer in blackface and an afro wig was shot by Karl Lagerfeld for an ad campaign for Dom Perignon two years ago. Supposedly the context of the shoot was to depict different men’s varying fantasies. Does this fantasy involves the whitest model dressing up as a black woman or is the turn-on for an a black women with an afro? This doesn’t sit well with me. When will white people learn that toying with racially sensitive depictions with blacks as their subjects can easily offend?Surely, it’s not that difficult to find black people to illustrate images of themselves.
