Lensed by celebrity photography team Inez & Vinoodh, the images feature two female models. In one image Fernanda Oliveira is seen reclining with legs open, wearing rollerblade stilettos, fishnet stocking, and a fur coat. In another image model Hiandra Martinez bends over in front of a stool wearing a long sleeve leopard leotard, fishnet stocking, and rollerblade stilettos. However, the focus isn’t on the Saint Laurent collection. In addition to alleged “degrading” imagery, some are questioning if the models are too thin. Unfortunately it’s a topic that the brand knows all to well. Just two years ago in 2015, the house came under attack for featuring models deemed to be ‘unhealthily thin’. Is the ARPP and media being too harsh on Saint Laurent or is there really an issue here? Take a closer look below.
