yellowface comparison

I thought it’d be nice to show what the people yellow face attempts to emulate actually look like. From Breakfast at Tiffany’s to “How I Met Your Mother” to Vogue magazine we can see the great lengths the media goes to just to capture that “asian” look.

The woman at the bottom right might be a bit unfamiliar since she’s not a household name yet but her name is Rinko Kikuchi. You might remember her from Pacific Rim.
