According to Fashionista, Model Querelle Jansen stars in the May 2013 issue’s “Heritage Heroes,” taking a look back at some of Marc Jacobs’s work for Louis Vuitton.

In fact, Buzzfeed put together a list of 15 Terrible Blackface Fashion Moments, featuring this most recent example from Vogue, as well as a roundup of the many others out there, including other editorial spreads and even examples that took place during runway shows.
