Around this time last year, media insiders — and then the world at large &madsh; were yammering about a Vogue cover that pitted basketball wonder LeBron James and supermodel Gisele Bündchen in a King Kong scenario. Critics screamed: “RACISTS!” Vogue defended: “But we didn’t know any better.” Less ire, however, was aimed at the two subjects, James and Bündchen. Maybe we should have? Because a year later, Bündchen is opening up to a new wave of “racist!” cries.
This new shoot from Norwegian fashion photographer Sølve Sundsbø is making at least some folks wonder: “can’t tell if the guys are her slaves or if they’re raping her.” To be fair, Gisele is showing the guys some affection, too.
