In a country plagued by an abundance of skin-whitening products and harmful, stereotype-perpetuating advertising, this is a really stupid move by Vogue Thailand.

This debacle comes a month after Naomi Campbell said this about a fashion industry she accused of being "guilty of racist acts":

Nika Mavrody from Fashion Post has this:

Today, Vogue Thailand shared a screenshot (below) showing Tyszka's email response to a critic of the cover. The photographer didn't respond to charges of racism directly or discuss airbrushing, claiming the effect was "a question of [lighting] + make up" and that the "pastel tones" are his standard style.

Tyszka also shared the final version of Vogue Thailand's November cover. Compare the final version (below left) with the pre-released version (below right):

They're quite clearly not the same. Bet someone's regretting releasing that first version now.
