Say What Now? Fashion Designer Allesandro Dell’Acqua and More Wear Blackface To African Themed ‘Disco Africa’ Halloween Party [Photos]


If you thought Julianne Hough as “Crazy Eyes” was shocking, wait until you see the photos from THIS Halloween party.

Last night, a ‘Disco Africa’ themed Halloween took place and several Italian fashion insiders, including designer Allesandro Dell’Acqua, came in blackface. Not the ‘unintentionally racist’ blackface that we’ve seen lately — but true exaggerated feature-having blackface.

Here’s Dell’Acqua above posing below with Stefano Gabbana (of Dolce & Gabbana) and Juan Fran Sierra.

The whole event was captured by  Russian photographer Zhanna Romashka, who posted a ton of pictures from the party on her blog

In case you were wondering, there was at least one black person at the party (below). We wonder how he felt?


Check out a few more pictures of the foolishness that went down. We’re completely flabbergasted as to how nobody managed to step in and say ‘this isn’t a good idea’.
