American rapper Megan Thee Stallion options on the duvet of Harper’s Bazaar‘s March concern. The concern options two covers, and in a single image she is seen in a sheer black cape from Chanel, accessorised with earrings from Bulgari, whereas in one other she is seen carrying a black high from Saint Laurent with a waist belt and a choker-like neck accent that includes a flower.
But her look has stirred a debate on social media on folks of color being photographed inaccurately.
Take a take a look at the images under.
In the feedback, one person wrote “Nah this ain’t it – photographer didn’t even know how to capture Megan’s skin correctly.. in any of the pics. Hopefully, he learned a lot from this.”
Another wrote, “Yall clearly need a black creative director on set. This is terrible.” More feedback confused, “Hire BLACK PHOTOGRAPHERS.”
“Why do y’all do Black women like this 🤦🏽♀️ y’all know these are not even artistically pleasing 😢 y’all did her wrong y’all need to learn ur audience it’s 2021 unacceptable,” wrote one other.
“A black photographer should’ve taken Megan’s pictures. Megan is gorgeous with or without makeup. However white photographers, almost never capture black beauty in the right light,” one other person commented.
The photographer, Collier Schorr, later shared that the rapper had collaborated with him within the course of. “A most remarkable experience making pictures with Megan Thee Stallion…who discussed each picture and edited afterwards with me … total collaboration as it should be to make together new images of her at this moment in her life,” he apparently wrote.
He, nevertheless, made his Instagram put up non-public. Screenshots of his assertion can be found on social media.
