View this post on Instagram

*𝘿𝙋 𝙀𝙓𝘾𝙇𝙐𝙎𝙄𝙑𝙀* : If you've ever needed proof of Ariana Grande’s appropriation of black aesthetics (beyond the obvious), it's all here. Multiple designers approached by her team to create costumes for the 2019 Sweetener tour have shared with us a PDF moodboard sent to them by her team. 72% of the four page document features black women as a reference (mostly Rihanna and a couple Ciara images). It also features several images of @creepyyeha 's distinctive made-to-measure bondagewear, which Versace - despite having bondage in their house codes as well - seemed to have replicated with minor changes. Arianators, come at us lol. • #sweetener #arianagrande #appropriation #culturalappropriation #creepyyeha #sweetenertour #popstar #musician #costumes #bondage #hardware #leather #custom #madetomeasure #madeinnyc #versace #donatellaversace #madeinitaly #pastel #pink #rihanna #badgalriri #ciara #rihannanavy #blackgirlmagic #wiwt #ootd #dietprada

A recently released mood board for Ariana Grande's Sweetener tour has some controversial revalations.

The document heavily features the images and work of WOC, including Rihanna and indie designer @creepyyeha as inspiration for performance looks and tour costumes.

Since the intial instagram callout, the mumble chanteuse's stylist Law Roach (op note: lol) has since responded via stories, "I love @diet_prada!! But I don't really understand this post," "This mood board was created by me (a black man) for her. So am [I] stealing from my own culture??? She didn't style herself people. She has trusted me for years with her image and lets me do me. Also who [in] the fashion industry isn't inspired by Rihanna?"
