what do you think?
wow, that's cold, frigid evenI dont know if this is true but i read somewhere that Rhianna refused to be the face of a Gucci campaign until they used more black models in their runway shows.
Naomi Cambelll basically said the same thing but she waited untill her modelling career was over before she said it ha ha i guess she didnt want to commit professional suicide.
Iman said it too, in fact it was the inspiration behind her make up brand. It was the fact that she was forced to wear white make up because there were no colours for brown skin tones back then.
Tyra Banks is another famous model who has talked openly about racism in fashion, again only once she retired from modelling but better late than never.
So yes, the world of fashion is about white white white. There was a show on TV about it the other day. They even asked one top magazine why they only use white models in runway show's when some of their wealthiest clients are black and Arab, to which they replied - "well because blacks and Arabs want to see white models, becasue white is aspirational and black isnt".
They asked the same question during Brazil fashion week (i think its called that), they asked why are over 90% of the runway models were white when Brazil is such a diverse country, to which one designer replied well because the black models arent beautiful lol
Make of that what you will.
