Hanaa Ben Abdesslem is a one of the girls to watch this season and with good reason; Carine Roitfeld enlists the beauty for her final issue of Vogue Paris in a creative beauty story by Karim Sadli. The colorful story, styled by Melanie Huynh and featuring the makeup talents of Christelle Cocquet, is a shot in the arm filled with unique and colorful cosmetics looks.

    Her features are stunning. That last pic of her with the red lips and those beautiful bone structure is testament of her exquisitness and good genetics blessed upon her.

    Beautiful African woman, theres more where that comes from.

    I find it highly offensive that VP chose to cover a North African, or a Muslim, woman with scarfs in this editorial. It is racist. But after all Lara Stone appeared in blackface and Freja was portrayed as a ‘geisha’ in the same magazine.

    @ Raquel: What exactly offends you about this? It’s fashion and fashion means freedom.

  13. Raquel says:

    As I explained, I find it offensive that a North African model (woman) is styled in headscarfs with her eyes closed. Fashion may mean freedom — however fashion, and other forms of art, can never be detracted from political and social connotations.

    Agree with xanax regarding the red lips pic. Karim Sadli goes from strength to strength. I’m becoming a big fan of his work.
