There's One Big Catch With Gap's New Ad Celebrating Diversity
Huffington Post - 9 months
A new Gap campaign directed by British Vogue’s Editor-in-Chief Edward Enninful is being widely praised for its diverse cast of characters, including big names like Christie Brinkley, Maria Borges, Wiz Khalifa and Priyanka Chopra.  But do you notice anything in particular about the group of happy people chosen to “embody American culture today,” according to a campaign caption? If you guessed the sheer lack of body or size diversity, you’d be correct.  Eninful, who in April became the first black editor of British Vogue, knocked it out of the park as far as racial diversity goes.

People Aren't Happy Vogue India Put Kendall Jenner On Its Anniversary Cover
Huffington Post - 10 months
Priyanka Chopra ― once a star in her home of India, now an international star ― is one of the first South Asian actors to nab the lead in a major American network series, in “Quantico.” Aishwarya Rai’s long career in Bollywood has made her one of India’s most iconic celebrities. This year, British actor Dev Patel became the third Indian to ever receive an Oscar nomination. Any of these celebrities would have made an excellent choice to represent the face of Vogue India on the magazine’s 10th anniversary, which was unveiled Wednesday. Instead, the editors recruited the ultra-famous American supermodel Kendall Jenner to grace the cover of its collectors edition issue with a gilded tag line, “Indian Affair” ― and many fans of the Indian fashion magazine were not pleased.
