Guess brown-skinned women who love this quirky trompe l'oeil look will have to buy those! Because the "flesh"-colored ones definitely don't represent the fleshtones of black people. Not a big deal, really, but definitely interesting. Since the brand is notorious for not casting any black models. Not just one season. For years and years. More than a decade, actually. Not one black model on their runways for more than ten years.ShareTweet Kinja is in read-only mode. We are working to restore service.
