Tacky

Italian Vogue, in their September issue featured model Kristen McMenamy as photographed by the well-renowned Steven Meisel. The shoot stirred a controversy as it is evidently inspired by the oil spill in Gulf Coast. The model was clad in black, drenched in oil and sprawled in blotted beaches.

Yes, the photos are quite powerful and striking. However, I believe, they are tasteless for most part. Vogue's attempt to glamorize a disaster is quite tacky. For one, ridiculously expensive clothes tainted with oil is an indignity to the victims of the disaster. Also, the message Vogue wanted to convey should have been couched in a more appropriate stage.
