Kendall and Kylie Jenner Blasted for Appropriating Chola Style in Deleted Instagram



Kylie Jenner


no strangers




cultural appropriation,

and now a recent


post by their clothing line has the Internet talking again.

The sisters are under fire for a since-deleted photo of a

plaid shirt

from their

Kendall Kylie clothing line

that was posted to Instagram last week. It showed a model wearing the shirt buttoned only at the top and worn over a black bustier with black slacks and hoop earrings. These are elements of

chola style

, as

Refinery29 notes

: Women of this Mexican-American subculture

are known for wearing

baggy pants and flannels buttoned at the top, among

other style choices

like dark lip liner and thin brows.




caught the photo

before it was deleted and posted it to her feed. "@KendallJenner @KylieJenner

will you ever come up with your own ideas

?" she captioned her post, adding the hashtag #culturevultures.



will you ever come up with your own ideas?


Instagram account


posted the screenshot to its 10 million-plus followers soon after.

"LMFAO what are you trying to scam outta brown culture," one user commented. "Disrespectful," said another.

As Teen Vogue notes,

the top itself isn't the issue

, but rather the styling. Non-Latino celebrities like Rihanna and Gwen Stefani have also

invited criticism from the Latino community

and beyond for pairing unbuttoned plaid shirts with accessories like hoop earrings, The Guardian notes.

It's insensitive for Kendall and Kylie's brand (or anyone else, for that matter) to

commercialize a culture

that isn't their own, for their own gain ― and a marginalized culture at that.

"So many young girls want to emulate the [chola] look and have no idea of

the cultural background or street politics

associated with it," model


, who identifies as a modern-day chola, told Vice in 2015. "It's easy for young privileged girls to want to have the look, but when they are done dressing up in their 'chola costume,' they don't have to go back home to the hood and deal with discrimination, violence, and poverty."

The Kendall Kylie website shows

the brand's other tops

styled on models, but

the page for the plaid shirt

currently shows the item on its own.

Teen Vogue published a second, catalog-style shot

that shows the shirt fashioned chola-style, just as it is in the Instagram post.

Kendall Kylie has yet to respond to HuffPost's request for comment.

Previously, in 2015, actress Amandla Stenberg called Kylie out for

posting a photo with her hair in cornrows

. "When u appropriate black features and culture but fail to use ur position of power to help black Americans by directing attention towards ur wigs instead of police brutality or racism," Stenberg wrote in response to the photo.

Popsugar Latina notoriously referred to Kylie as

'a mix of' Latina celebrities

later that year, even though she is not Latina at all, noting she does

borrow quite a few looks

from Latina culture.

And last month,

the two women faced a lawsuit

for T-shirts that showed

their own faces layered over those of music icons including rappers

Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls. The women reportedly never asked permission to use the artists' photos, and one of the photographers said it was "particularly problematic" to be associated with Kendall because of her

controversial Pepsi ad

from a few months earlier. Smalls' mother called the shirts "exploitation at its worst," and the sisters publicly pledged to learn from the incident.

Are Big Hoop Earrings Coming Back in Style?
Sweetie, They never left!1. whats wrong with big hoop earrings?Nothing...I think they look nice and make you look really pretty! They do NOT make you look street!?!?!2. Do you think these big hoop earrings are pretty?No! They are super ugly! The 80's have no business making a come back!3. Why does it seem only trashy girls wear those big hoop earrings?Hoop Earrings For Girls4. I Wanna know why girls war those huge silver hoops?I dont see how wearing big hoop earrings makes you think the wearer wants to be popular.... they are fun and stylish is all5. When's a good time to wear big hoop earrings?group events6. what is your opinion: big hoop earrings?It depends on what she wears it with... If its with like, a belly shirt, butt shorts, etc... then slutty. If its with jeans and a cute sweater, its just an accessory. It all depends on how you carry them and yourself when you wear them.7. Teens: What do you think of big hoop earrings?dangourse, honestly a nice simple pair of earings are good, i think alto of girls go over the top in fashion just to fit in but if you love them ebacuse they say who you are cool then :)8. All my fashionistas and 80's babies.... I need help. What do I wear to an 80's party?I was a genuine product of the 80's! We wore parachute pants and straight-leg jeans, as tight as you could get them! If you did not have to lay down on the bed to zip them, they were not tight enough! Silky, shiny, nylon warm-up suits were popular, too, and "satin" jackets. Sweatshirts and tee shirts with the shoulders cut out or off one shoulder (a la Flashdance) were all the rage. Spandex leggings, with a long shirt cinched with a wide belt was a popular look. T-shirts, with the sleeves and the torso (up to just under the bust), cut into strips were a hot fad for a while. they were called string t-shirts. I had one with a unicorn on it, very 80s. For footwear, you have two main choices. With jeans, you should wear boots with a heel, jeans tucked in, and covered with leg-warmers. Anyone who can knit or crochet can make those. Color-coordinated with your shirt was very hot. You can wear a straight, mid-thigh-length skirt (leather, or pleather, is perfect) with hose, and lacy, ruffled ankle socks with high heels (see the ZZ Topp video : She's Got Legs, for reference). You can get the socks at Priscilla's. Lots of chunky bangle bracelets and big hoop earrings are required jewelry. See if your mom, aunts, or anybody still has a Lindy-Star ring in their jewelry box. They will know what you are talking about, everybody had one of those back in the day. Mood rings were popular. Multiple necklaces were often worn, too. Hair, as big as you can get it, will finish the look. You can set it on curlers. When dry, turn your head upside down and tousle with your fingers, do not comb or brush. Or make a zillion tiny braids when it's wet, let dry, then turn your head upside down and brush, that's what some of us did. Use a half a can of hairspray, at least, to keep the "poof." You can do your bangs with a curling iron, just make sure to comb them up and spray well, you can not have flat bangs! Big bows, scrunchies, and such, came along during that time, too. For make-up, I wore sky blue and bubblegum pink eye-shadow (together. Blue on the lid, and pink up to the brow, with a line of blue from the corner of my eye, up to the outer end of my eyebrow), and a tawny-peachy blush (bronzer or any peachy blush will work). Lots of girls were wearing really scary-bright colors, though! Eyeliner and lots of black mascara are practically required. I wore cranberry colored nail polish usually, and my lipstick was called "Sea Fleur" or something like that. It was by L'Oreal, and I think they still make it. It was a purple-red, at any rate. Sometimes I wore copper, whatever matched my clothes best. Some girls wore frosty pink, or whatever. You could do your own thing with make-up, pretty much, as long as it did not look natural! If you can find pics of any of the 80s girl bands, you can get good ideas. The Bangles practically oozed eighties-ness! Movies made in the 80s helped start the trends, and define the styles, so that's a good place to look, as are the old 80s pop and rock videos. Ask your mom, and any older cousins, aunts etc. what they wore back then. If you are lucky, maybe you've got a pack-rat in the family, who's been hanging onto a pair of leg-warmers or something, just waiting for them to come back in style! Sometimes, these people eventually give up, or pass on, and you can find great retro looks at Goodwill or other thrift stores. A costume shop could probably help you out, too. Anybody from 35-55 should have good recollections, and be a source of advice, on the greatest decade that ever was! Hope I helped, good luck!

Fashion Hoop Earrings
Great news for jewelry collectors! This year, the fashion hoop earrings are going to be one of the newest jewelry items. A great number of people are thinking of this seeing that hoop earrings were conspicuously starting to be hot in the fashion world at the end of the previous year, and it has been carrying over up to now. Nonetheless, a great big change in fashion such as this may gradually take some time.Sure enough, at sometime this year people are going to see almost everyone flamboyantly wearing these exquisitely designed fashion hoop earrings. Certainly, there are a lot of various styles of hoop earrings sold in stores or can be simply bought online. These may come from different sizes ranging from small hoops to large hoops. As a matter of fact, hoops are even being used in some other things aside from earrings. Also, the most interesting fact one would like to know is that hoop earrings are not exclusively used by women, but they can be used by both sexes. Then again, the men commonly wear the smaller hoop ones, and bigger hoops are usually worn by women.Moreover, it will be absolutely fascinatingly cool to see if the style really changes like it did when the elegantly designed hoop earrings first came out. When these first came out to the general public, these originally appeared small (similar to what they are being used right now), and by the end of their duration as a phenomenal fad, these earrings had eventually gotten so big. In point of fact, a number of people assert that they had gotten very big that they could kind of kill themselves out.In truth, people would like to wear these fashion hoop earrings, but not even one wanted to be out of fashion; thus, people were really trying to wear the big ones. On the other hand, they appeared as not very practical because many jobs and companies never allowed their workers or employees to wear this kind of jewelry in the workplace. As well, if history will be repeated, then I must say that people are really going to see the demise of the hoop fashion when the hoops are again beginning to get too big.And now, if you are actually having in mind about beginning to get into the hoop earrings, then you really are going to have such a vast task ahead. Many places offer these kinds of earrings, both in stores and on the internet. However, if you purchase them in actual stores, you need to be extra-careful; otherwise, you will end up expending way too much. This is the reason why it is preferably necessary to search for fashion hoop earrings online.By simply looking for these styles of earrings online, you can indeed save a lot of money. Certainly, you are able to find these hoop earrings at your local stores; however, they will cost more as people who sell them exactly know that they can simply jack up the prices. On the other hand, when you procure them online, stores will definitely have to fight for your business. Therefore, if sellers over-price some of these jewelry items, then you can simply purchase them from another local store. And as a final remark, these captivating fashion hoop earrings are unquestionably back in style.But as to how long they are going to be back in fad still remains an unanswered question. Remarkably, a great multitude of people do not expect these jewelry items to immediately die out before the end of 2008. Thus you quickly go and dust off your jewelry box for your hoop earrings, because they are now back in style and will have to remain in style for a long time!
White LA Students Told They Can't Wear Hooped Earrings ...
White women accused of cultural appropriation have been told to scrap their 'hoop earrings' after a group of Latino college students complained that 'black and brown folks' were being exploited by it.A group of students, identifying themselves as women of color, wrote, 'White Girl, take off your hoops' on a 'free wall' used for unmoderated free speech at Pitzer College in Los Angeles, California.After one student was confused by the message, Alegria Martinez, Jacquelyn Aguilera, and Stefania Gallo-Gonzalez addressed the school in emails explaining the 'artwork'.Martinez wrote: 'The black and brown bodies who typically wear hooped earrings, (and other accessories like winged eyeliner, gold name plate necklaces, etc) are typically viewed as ghetto, and are not taken seriously by others in their daily lives.'White people have actually exploited the culture and made it into fashion,' she added.While hoop earrings date back to ancient times, they have also been staples among Cholas and hip hop artists who popularized large hoops and doorknocker earrings before they were featured in fashion shows like the Marc Jacobs Fall 2017 collection.Martinez, an active member of the Latinx Student Union, wrote an email to the entire student body explaining that hoop earrings are just one accessory appropriated by white people, the Claremont Independent reported.She said: 'The art was created by myself and a few other WOC [women of color] after being tired and annoyed with the reoccurring theme of white women appropriating styles...that belong to the black and brown folks who created the culture.'The culture actually comes from a historical background of oppression and exclusion.'The black and brown bodies who typically wear hooped earrings, (and other accessories like winged eyeliner, gold name plate necklaces, etc) are typically viewed as ghetto, and are not taken seriously by others in their daily lives.'Because of this, I see our winged eyeliner, lined lips, and big hoop earrings serving as symbols as an everyday act of resistance, especially here at the Claremont Colleges.'Meanwhile we wonder, why should white girls be able to take part in this culture (wearing hoop earrings just being one case of it) and be seen as cute/aesthetic/ethnic.'White people have actually exploited the culture and made it into fashion,' she said.After the incident received national media attention, Martinez, Aguilera, and Gallo-Gonzalez say they have been harassed by 'right-wing groups and individuals'. One received a death threat through Facebook messenger, they said.College President Melvin L. Oliver issued a statement condemning the 'cycle of violent hate speech' directed at students as a result.The three students also clarified their intentions behind the artwork in a written statement on, drawing attention to the more systemic forms of inequality.They said: 'The true meaning of the mural was to reflect the discrimination that women and nonbinary femmes of color face on college campuses when they are rendered invisible.'They also explained the pressures they faced to shed their 'aesthetic' in order to be taken seriously while white women could engage in cultural appropriation without it hurting their social or academic prospects.'Latinx women are forced to assimilate into academia to be respected while their struggles remain invisible to the institutions,' they wrote.'If we don't conform, it becomes difficult to access campus resources, find job opportunities and create professional networks.'Despite erasure, institutions knowingly label forced assimilation as a process of "professional socialization" rather than a process that violently strips identities and culture from women and nonbinary femmes of color.'On the other hand, white upper-class elite women are able to appropriate fashion created by marginalized groups with no consequences to their well-being, social acceptance, and academic success.'While hoop earrings date back to ancient times, the accessory became increasingly popular among African American women in the 1960s.Within the Black Power movement, hoop earrings were considered a way to celebrate one's culture, and echoed Afrocentric fashion.The earrings took on the same cultural meaning as Afro hairstyles or cornrow braids, and were later seen on 1970s icons Donna Summer and Diana Ross.Thicker doorknocker earrings were popularized in the 1980s by hip hop trio Salt-N-Pepa and rapper MC Lyte among many others.Artists like Sade Adu, Mary J Blige, Jennifer Lopez, and Missy Elliott, also consistently wore hoop earrings, becoming a mainstay in 90s fashion - which saw a resurgence in recent years.The earrings were also incorporated in the 'chola' style, popular among second-generation Mexican-American girls.In 2011, Vogue Italia referred to the style as 'slave earrings' in its 'Shop the Trend' section, which it later changed to 'ethnic earrings'.Taylor Swift also donned doorknocker earrings and piled on gold chains for her 2014 video Shake It Off, which was promptly slammed for using black back-up dancers as props.Last year, Vogue declared 'doorknocker earrings are back', citing high fashion brands Balenciaga and Celine.The earrings also appeared on the runway at Marc Jacobs' Fall 2017 show, which drew on hip hop style just one season after the brand was heavily criticized for sending models down the runway with fake dreadlocks.
5 Jewellery Pieces Every Woman Must Have in Her Collection - Times of India
Diamonds might still be considered as a girl's best friend, but they can never replace the heirloom ornaments passed onto us by our grandmothers, the junk jewellery we've picked up from the tapris of India's famous shopping hubs and the semi-precious jewellery pieces we buy every now and then. While we are sure our jewellery boxes are so loaded that they can turn anybody green with envy, we are still wondering whether what we have inside the curios is actually something we wear so often. And, to enlighten you on your jewellery choices, we got in touch with four of India's leading bijouterie specialists to find out the current must-haves in your trinket box. Jewellery designer and consultant, Ritika Bhasin feels accessories add more glamour and charm to one's look and while stylish clothes are of umpteen importance, no modern woman can complete her desired look without picking up apt jewellery for the occasion. Ritika lists out a few tips to build up that perfect jewellery collection: 1. Cocktail Ring - You don't need to be married or engaged to own that big rock and if you are not a diamond person, you can opt for a fashionable semi-precious cocktail ring, which can prove to be your ultimate accessory every day. You can choose from a sophisticated to a vintage ring, a chunky over-the-top one to a slender one, geometric to daring, but if you don't own a cocktail ring, then you're certainly oblivious of the charms it possesses. 2. Studs/Hoops/Chandelier Earrings - A woman can make the most subtle style statement ever by donning a pair of small yet classy studs. Elegant and eternal, you can never go wrong with diamond studs. They are the best choice for women who like to go minimalistic. If aversive to diamonds, try different hued studs carved in silver, they are a classic essential. Like flirty and fun jewellery? Then hoop earrings have to be your pick. Choose between gold and silver and you are good to go any day. If going minimalistic is not your style then a pair of chandelier earrings can be your best friend on a night out or a day soiree. Dazzling, bold and big, these earrings will stay in fashion till eternity. 3. Long Necklace - If you haven't inherited a long necklace from your mother, it's time to invest in one because they look perfect with absolutely anything, Indian or contemporary. 4. Bracelet/Bangle - If not a watch person, you ought to be a bracelet person who loves to flaunt a delicate thing around the wrist. Either go plain Jane and pick up fine gold bangles of various shapes and sizes or pick up a chunky fashion bracelet bejewelled with semi-precious stones. For a classier look, invest in a basic diamond tennis bracelet which never goes out of vogue. 5. Pearls - Most underrated form of jewellery, pearl pieces whether in the form of layered necklaces, delicate bracelets or flowy earrings have had a reputation of suiting the Indian skin tone to perfection. And, those of you who don't have a single piece of this sea jewel in your collection, you are certainly missing the fun of exuding class in minimalism. According jewellery couturier Akanksha Chowdhry and the woman behind brand Nayirah, " Women today are making a conscious effort to look good! And if clothes are the cake, then jewellery is the icing. Whether a simple neckpiece with a drop pendant or a bracelet with tassels, accessories are a must." As per Akanksha, the must have jewellery pieces for her would definitely be a pair of hoop earrings, a hand harness that fulfills the need for both a bracelet and a ring and a chic neck-piece. "Since it's the onset of summer, there's a bigger focus on Swarovski stones and tassels which are elegant, subtle and chic. A pair of jeans, a white shirt, a tasseled neckpiece and you are good to go," adds Akanksha. Get back to the roots Bollywood jewellery designers, Vinay and Anirudh Gupta of Shri Hari Diagems, who designed Deepika Padukone's jhumkas, haath phool and neck pieces in epic drama, Bajirao Mastani feel it's best to style your antique heirloom pieces and fuse them with modern clothing to include these wondrous ornaments in your jewellery collection, instead of letting them rot inside your back lockers. "Wear your grandmother's choker necklace as an arm band and style it pretty with any outfit. Also, a vintage broach can look lovely as a maang tikka for that evening wedding," suggest the duo. "Antique polki maharani haars have become the hottest trend this season since they strike the perfect balance between classic and modern elegance and it's a must to include these in your collection," add the designers. According to the duo, it's the best time to tell your mother to dig into her closet and share some of her timeless jewels with you because modern Indian woman is in mood for some experimentation.
