While Jacobs has been the current focus of attention of accusations concerning cultural appropriation, the designer is not the first (nor will perhaps be the last) famous face to be accused of appropriating black culture. On multiple occasions, whether you love or loathe them, the Kardashian-Jenner clan have been the subject of criticism over social media for their choice of hairstyles. Snapchat enthusiast Kylie Jenner controversially sported cornrows, a trend also becoming known as ‘boxer braids’. The Hunger Games actor Amandla Sternberg openly expressed her thoughts on Jenner’s cornrows, criticising her for appropriating black culture and adding that she failed to ‘use her position’ of power to speak out in the #BlackLivesMatter campaign against police brutality.In the whole cultural appropriation debate, there raises the question of why taking pieces of black culture is praised on the likes of Gigi Hadid, Kylie Jenner and Khloe Kardashian (who are all white), as fashion, but it’s a different story for someone who is embracing their own culture.At last year’s Oscars, Disney star Zendaya stunned the red carpet in a long braided hairstyle. Fashion Police’s Giuliana Rancic heavily criticised the star for her hairstyle, remarking that she felt the braids “smelled like patchouli oil… or weed”. While Fashion Police is a source of outspoken opinion in general, it still does not veer from the opinion that black culture and features are all desired (if you’re white).Despite numerous discussions, opinion forums, articles and social media debates, cultural appropriation, whether it be among celebrities on red carpets or sewn into the fabric itself, is not showing any signs of slowing down. It is very much a trend to adopt black culture into your wardrobe, but to turn a blind eye when it comes to the issues around it. On the catwalk, colours are handled with care and sensitivity. It is time other issues of colour are handled the same way.
