Ondria Hardin, Kate Moss, and more models pose in blackface in these controversial fashion spreads. By Anna Klassen.
Sixteen-year-old Caucasian model Ondria Hardin poses as an 'African Queen' in a 2013 edition of French glossy Numéro. The 5' 10" beauty was covered in bronze face and body makeup for the shoot, wearing "ethnic" clothing to depict a traditional African woman. But the shoot didn't appear without controversy. Jezebel's Laura Beck said of the shoot, "Maybe it's because the magazine just couldn't find a black model?" She continued, "Maybe there are none, and it's just not a profession that appeals to anyone but young, tall, skinny, white girls?"
