Magazine Cover Shoot Sparks Heated Debate
Hot Girl Meg seems happy with her new Harper’s Bazaar magazine cover photo shoot — she’s been posting it all over her social media pages. In other corners of the Internet, however, there’s a debate raging about the magazine’s ability to properly capture a Black woman’s beauty.
The images, which see the rapper embracing a minimalist, pared-down look, met with derision in some quarters. Some social media users criticised the lighting, somber mood and general aesthetic.
“Nah this ain’t it – photographer didn’t even know how to capture Megan’s skin correctly … in any of the pics,” wrote one user.
“Hopefully (she) learned a lot from this,” another commented: “If you can’t capture dark skinned women just say that.”
“Y’all clearly need a black creative director on set,” wrote another.
Megan’s Going More Natural W/ Her Makeup
For what it’s worth, Harper’s Bazaar has a Black editor-in-chief: Samira Nasr, who worked on the Megan cover shoot. And Meg actually talked in the article about how she’s been toning down her makeup lately.
“I’m realizing that I don’t have to be in full glam every time you see me, because I’m just getting more comfortable with myself and more comfortable with my skin,” she says. “I know that I’m a person that everybody looks to, and they’re like, ‘Oh, Megan, she’s a confident woman. She’s so strong.’ But you have to go through things to become that person.”
