PHOTO: VOGUE ITALIA/INSTAGRAM

Supermodel Gigi Hadid has apologised after fans criticised her heavily bronzed look on the cover of Vogue Italia and said the picture, shot by photographer Steven Klein, was an example of blackface. She said on Instagram that the concerns raised were "valid", but that she had little control over the creative direction of the shoot and retouching of the photo, reported BBC News.
