    The fashion circus may have chugged on to Paris , but talk is still centred on Milan: Dolce & Gabbana have been accused of sending out "racist" earrings on its catwalk.
    Models at its spring/summer 2013 show on Sunday at Milan Fashion Week wore plastic earrings shaped into the head of a black woman. The image also appeared on several dresses, tops and skirts.
    Beady-eyed observers have been quick to pick up on the earrings' likeness to Blackamoor artworks, which have been denounced in the past for romanticising the slave trade (think gaudily painted turbaned-and-jewelled-up black Africans in various subservient poses). Critics also pointed out that the expansive 86-strong cast of models were all white.

    According to Vogue , Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana have since clarified that the earrings are a homage to the Moors, Muslims settlers who arrived in Sicily in the 10th century. The island has been a long-time muse of the label and is the birthplace of Dolce; it was chosen as the location for the label's inaugural couture show in July.
    It's not the first time that earrings have been the subject of a racism row: last year, Vogue Italia published a feature online referring to a pair of large, gold hoops as "slave earrings". The magazine subsequently apologised and blamed it on "bad translating".

    So, now flour sack dresses are in? With Aunt Jemima earrings? Fabulous.

    *sigh* There is a certain sect of non whites who are obsessed with blacks/black women. You think they'd have jizzed it all out of their system by now, but nooooo...they are like on a mission to show how ignorant and obsessed they are. That type of attention is so uncomfortable. They don't even know what 'paying homage' means.
