ITALIAN VOGUE: BLACK GIRLZ GONNA KICK URE ASSS!!

June 21, 2008

On a political level….I’m iffy about this…

On a visual level-YAY!!!!! You see, us black girls we aren’t that bad to look at are we…? Come on!! 18 years I’ve been reading, buying and sleeping with every fashion magazine from New York to Togo and we’re NEVAH used! EVAH! We don’t bite, I SWEAR!!

Naomi looks finally presentable there….but the two below of Liya & Jourdan KICK ASSSSSSSSS!

Is this Sisilee Lopez? Or Dunn…?? Seriously, he’s made them all look the same with this neutral brown colour….I just jope they’ve not made Alex Wek light skinned!???


Is this Chanel Iman? Don’t look like Dunn…


I’ll leave it with this quote in the NY Times article:

RACIAL prejudice in the fashion industry has long persisted because of tokenism and lookism. “We already have our black girl,” says a designer to a fashion-show casting agent, declining to see others. Or: “She doesn’t have the right look.” Laziness, paranoia and pedantry may also have something to do with the failure to hire black models for shows and magazine features in any meaningful number, but, hey, that’s just a guess.
