I mean, heavy tanning like that has been a thing before the whole “ethnically ambiguous look”. On top of that, she IS Italian, and I’ve known a lot of real, actual Italians (I’m even partly Italian myself), and many of them get easily that tan just by spending time in the sun. It’s one of the reasons that for a long time central and northern Europeans (and some racists in secessionist parts of Italy still do) referred to Italians, especially southern Italians, as “black”. I agree with you in theory, I’m just not actually sure it applies to Ariana. Just my two cents on this. No shots.
