African roots

Beyonce's controversial photoshoot, which saw her face darkened and daubed in face paint, has been defended by the magazine that shot them.

Beyonce appeared in L'Officiel Paris in designer dresses, including one designed by her mother, in an African Queen themed 90th anniversary issue but the mag claims that she was "voluntarily darkened". They said that the entire shoot was a tribute to the star's "African roots"

"The designs are all reflective of the African influence on fashion this season," the magazine said in a statement. "As for the artistic make-up, the inspiration came from several African rituals during which paint is used on the face."
