Gambian-Swedish model Oumie Jammeh is styled by Natasha Royt in Chanel, Chloe, JW Anderson, Salvatore Ferragamo and more for ‘Nature Made’. Intricate crochet and macrame—on tank dresses, swinging skirts, and cover-ups—appear at home, as Oumie exlores the pristine wetlands and rocky coast of Southern California.

Super top model Kendall Jenner is styled by Celestine Cooney in a benign fashion editorial that should get her in no trouble with Twitter's fashion police. Photographer Cole Sprouse captures Kendall for The Sunday Times Style May 14, 2017./ Hair by David Keough; makeup by Mary Phillps
Note that AOC supports criticism of Kendall's Pepsi commercial, but the Vogue India dustup is a bit much, given that both editor-in-chief Priya Tanna and the 10th anniversary issue creative director Mario Testino chose her.
As DailyO India points out:
No one was offended when Gisele Bundchen wore a skimpy bikini in the September 2009 cover. No public outrage when Victoria Beckham wore a tika on the November 2008 issue. What about Sarah Jessica Parker in the February 2010 cover? Has she ever set a Manolo Blahnik on Indian soil?
Cindy Crawford was on the 3rd anniversary (October 2010) issue and spoke about everything from retirement to selfies but nothing about India - Mario Testino yes. But public outrage for showcasing a foreigner? None.
The point is, writes Nirva Patel, that the very social media frenzy that makes overnight super stars out of girls with no real credentials beyond their followers statistics, eats its stars with a voracious, self-righteous appetite.
And where is the adoring herd to defend their superstar? Silent . . . just like Republicans who refuse to criticize US President Donald Trump.
