“Now all WHITE ladies now let’s get in formation.”
Misha Collection, a Melbourne fashion company, closed its Australian Fashion Week show with a group of models walking to Beyoncé’s black pride anthem, « Formation. » But many people are angry because the group didn’t include a single black model.

Beyoncé’s « Formation » has been touted as the artist’s most politically-charged work in her music career.

The song is an unapologetic celebration of black culture — « I like cornbreads and collard greens, bitch » — and beauty — « I like my negro nose with Jackson Five nostrils. »
In fact, the song is so politically charged that Beyoncé has defended the music video against accusations that it is « anti-police » for featuring images inspired by Black Lives Matter protests.
When IMG Models, an international modeling agency, posted video of the closing show led by Bella Hadid, people were pretty livid.
