Supermodel turned business mogul, Iman, took time out her busy schedule to talk to fashionista.com about the recent 'Slave Earrings' controversy surrounding Vogue Italia.

Here is what she had to say:


I’m a huge fan of Franca Sozzani and Vogue Italia’s website because they have a whole section on black models. Is it controversial? Yes. The naming of it, I don’t get it. I sometimes wonder in this age of reality shows has it become part of the language–the more controversy the more [buzz] it creates. But yeah, I didn’t like it. Slave does not make it ethnic. Mind you, it’s not lost in translation–the word slave, we know what it is. They might as well have called them “nigger earrings.” For somebody like Franca Sozzani, who did that whole black issue for Vogue, somebody should have said something.


PREACH!
