Magazine apologizes for 'Back to Black' issue: 'We are aware of how problematic this is'





Elle Germany says it is “guilty” of misidentifying two models and using “Back to black” as its cover line on its November 2019 issue. This week, the magazine came under scrutiny for its white cover model and a corresponding article on black models.


“In our current issue we approach the color black from different angles,” read a statement provided to Yahoo Lifestyle from ELLE Germany editor-in-chief Sabine Nedelchev. “One of our focuses was to feature strong black women who work as fashion models. In doing so, we were guilty of several errors for which we sincerely apologize. It was wrong to use the cover line ‘Back to black’ which could be misconstrued to mean that black individuals are some sort of fashion trend. This obviously was not our intention and we regret not being more sensitive to the possible misinterpretations.”
