They Tried It! Gucci Apologizes for Racist Blackface Sweater

Its only six days into Black History Month and it’s seems as they they couldnt wait for the disrepect.

Gucci has joined the racist bandwagon for a blackface-inspired sweater.

The fashion house has apologized for selling the black balaclava knit top from the Fall Winter 2018 season. It currently sells for $890 on sites like Spring and features a cut-out at the mouth that is outlined in hred.

Here’s how the sweater is described on the website:

‘Inspired by vintage ski masks, multicolored knitted balaclavas walked the runway, adding a mysterious feel to this collection. This knit top combines the accessory with the ready-to-wear collection.’

Anyone with eyes can see that the sweater is reminiscent of racist caricatures with overtly drawn red lips.

Gucci’s apology below:

We consider diversity to be a fundamental value to be fully upheld, respected, and at the forefront of every decision we make.

Fashion Nova Sells A Knockoff Of Meghan Markle’s Wedding Reception Dress

You can almost guaranteed to find whatever clothing you need for a affordable price at Fashion Nova.

Thirty-five customers have reviewed the aptly named “Royal Debut Gown” on Fashion Nova’s site since July, with some saying they even wore it to their own weddings.

“Very flattering. Stretchy thick fabric so it’s not see thru. Beautiful little train on the back. Wore as my second dress at my wedding and everyone screamed as I walked back in the room!” one satisfied customer wrote. Another said their bridesmaids wore it down the aisle.

For those looking for a more high-end option, Stella McCartney is also selling versions of the now-infamous design. However, the British designer is producing just 46 replicas of Markle’s gown (23 in white, 23 in black). Those seeking to purchase will have to get an exclusive invite from McCartney herself — and each will cost £3,500, or about $4,656.

At that price, the Fashion Nova version is looking better than ever.

How I Styled My Wide Leg Pants

One of my all time favorite trends to come out of the spring collections this year is the wide-leg pants. It’s tailored, classic, but boasts a silhouette that turns heads all the same. Whether high-waisted or low-slung, this wide leg pants trend is perfect for the office (with a button-down) or date night (with a silk camisole).

Don’t: pair wide-leg pants with an oversize top. It’s important to balance the proportions of this oversize pants when reaching for a shorter style.

Do: Reach for a high-waisted style.

Don’t: leave your top loose when opting for a high-waisted style. Show off your waistline and minimize excess bulk.
