Are You Buying It? Vogue Italia Apologizes For “Slave Earrings”


We know it’ll take a litte more than an apology to settle Vixens down, but Vogue Italia offered up this statement in response to the outage over “Slave Earrings.”

The magazine’s editor-in-chief Franca Sozzani says:

“We apologise for the inconvenience. It is a matter of really bad translation from Italian into English. The Italian word, which defines those kind of earrings, should instead be translated into ‘ethnical style earrings.’ Again, we are sorry about this mistake which we have just amended in the website.”

“Ethnical style earrings”?! Oh, brother.

Are you buying it?
