Cheese Made From Toe Microbes Looks As Good As It Smells – Not Very

Toe Cheese

While a slice of cheddar on top of a sandwich, or a bit of Brie paired with a cracker is usually an appetizing sight, the smell of cheese doesn’t have the best reputation. If you’ve ever heard anyone joke “who cut the cheese?” following a less than fragrant moment, then you already know it’s not […]

Natural Disasters: Not a Fashion Moment

Natural Disasters: Not a Fashion Moment

Vogue Italia Thinks Slave Earrings and ‘Ethnic’ Style Are Interchangeable

Vogue Italia Thinks Slave Earrings and 'Ethnic' Style Are Interchangeable

Vogue is a brand that has plenty of experience with insensitivity: American Vogue published a puff piece on the Syrian first couple just as uprisings in North Africa and the Middle East were heating up, French Vogue published a blackface editorial and a piece with children dressed and made up as adults (the latter may have been behind Carine Roitfeld’s departure), but we’ve always held out a bit more hope for Vogue Italia.

Case in point: Google recently killed profiles for brands as diverse as Ford and Sesame Street, with no plans for business profiles for a “few months.” {Search Engine Land}
