Kiia Waden Is 'White Lady' Inspiration for Elle Mexico Brides, Compliments of the Fashion Industry

What perfect timing! No sooner had I posted my thoughts on the ongoing controversy of white models looking like black goddesses in the name of artistic freedom, than up pops this new editorial from Elle Mexico called ‘White Lady’. Model Kiia Waden is center stage in this beauty-themed wedding editorial lensed by Santiago Ruisenor. Paulina Soto styles the perfect ‘White Lady’,symbolic to all the women of Mexico in her beauty, virginity and today — just to be difficult — her white skin. Don’t get riled up now; I sided on behalf of the creatives all morning. Here’s one for the little people. ~ Anne
