"Formation" is a song about black female empowerment, but it's by Beyoncé, so of course everyone loves it. And that is, of course, totally fine and good. But maybe not when its used as a soundtrack to your all-white fashion show. That's exactly what the Misha Collection did for the close of its Fashion Week Australia show, in which Bella Hadid and other white AF models strutted down the runway to lyrics like "I like my baby heir with baby hair and afros / I like my negro nose with Jackson Five nostrils."

According to Fashion Spot, more than three-fourths of all the models who walked the runways for Fall 2016 collections were white. That's worse than the audience of a Taylor Swift concert.
