When you're the wife of a Russian billionaire, resting your limbs on a conventional chair obviously won't do. But thanks to 32-year-old Dasha Zhukova, we've been offered a glimpse at the questionable furniture choices that can accompany such a lifestyle.
While people celebrated Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s fight for racial equality and civil rights during Monday's MLK holiday, a Russian fashion magazine put in overtime to once again prove that we have some distance to go when it comes to racial sensitivity in the fashion industry. Miroslava Dumas new online magazine, Buro 24/7, ran an article about Zhukova, a Russian socialite and the editor-in-chief of boutique fashion magazine Garage, reports Fashion Bomb Daily.
But in an ill-timed presentation of the latest in side-eye inducing home ware, the photograph accompanying the article showed Zhukova sitting on a chair fashioned to look like a half-naked black woman.
The chair depicts the woman with her knees pressed against her bare chest as she appears to hold the weight of the serene-looking Zhukova. The dummy wears only black knee-high boots, elbow-length black clubs and underwear. And atop the mannequin, looking totally oblivious to the unsettling message presented by the image, sits a pristinely lit Zhukova.

Gahhh - my eyes! The chair is even worse than that tacky “leg-lamp” in “Christmas Story”. Would this count as “high fashion crime”?
She’s just celebrating diversity.
>>The Guardian reports that the chair is similar to the 1969 artwork of British pop artist Allen Jones, who used a white mannequin to create a seat almost identical in appearance and styling.<<
I remember all the riots, looting and burning when that was made public./s
If a gangsta’ rapper had posed in the same chair? Nadda.
Why do American’s expect Russia to care one bit about our National Civil rights icons or Holidays?
I really don't care anymore about anything which upsets leftists. They're fine with things like "Piss Christ" and "artwork" which mocks Bush and Palin, so I will be fine with whatever they're currently "outraged" about.
Is she now a “socialite”? And a wife?
I thought she was a mistress of Russian billionaire Abramovitch. “Socialite” being another word for “spends her time spreading sugar daddy money around at fashion shows and charity parties”.
