When I see an editorial spread with brown beauties gracing the pages, it’s like seeing your own family in a magazine because you are so proud. It is no secret that black models don’t get enough shine in the fashion industry, so I wont touch on this too much. However, I am loving Vogue Italia for featuring Black models Jasmine Tookes, Cici Ali, Jar Childs, Kelly Moreira, Lyndsey Scott, R’el Dade, and Ubah Hassanin, shot by Ellen Von Unwerth, in their May 2011 issue “Jump and Smile”. The girls are gorgeous, the colors are vibrant, and the fashion is HAUTE! This editorial seems so genuine with chemistry and overall they seemed to have fun on the photo shoot set. 🙂
P.S. Check out those shoes! NICE!
