Bribery Is The New Black

On the heels of the Marc Jacobs/KCD bribery scandal comes a report that a Prada's longtime casting director, Russell Marsh, accepted bribes from two modeling agencies to land their "girls" spots in Prada and Miu Miu castings. What's interesting is that many industry insiders have intimated that when Prada first started sending pale, blonde, European models down the runway, other labels followed suit, leading to a lack of diversity — and specifically black models — on the catwalk. Was Mr. Marsh part of the problem? We'll have to see. [Fashionista]
