MOVE OVER AGAIN NAOMI? ELLE MAGAZINE – CANADA’S ULTIMATE FASHION FAIL

FASHION FAIL

Elle Magazine (Canada) July 2011

Elle Magazine July 2011

Hot on the heels of Cadbury UK’s Chocolate-gate scandal in which the popular confectioner ran a print advertisement with the tag line “Move over Naomi, there’s a new diva in town…” for the launch of their new brand of chocolate which seemed to refer to the famed supermodel Naomi Campbell. The supermodel took offense, citing racial degradation and the company has since done away with the ads and issued an apology to the supermodel. Now Elle Canada (apparently they missed the memo) has featured a similar tag line in their July 2011 issue next to a picture of their cover girl, 16-year-old up and coming model Herieth Paul who is being touted as the next best thing. My question is, would they ever do this to Kate Moss? Eerily enough, a colleague of mine pointed out that she (Paul) bears an uncanny resemblance to Campbell, even though I fail to see it. Let’s wait and see how this one pans out.
