Naomi Campbell slays at 44 years of age! She is a true supermodel…okokokokok!!!!! She looks amazing. Her body is insane. I can only hope and pray that my body looks somewhat like that when I get to be her age. Also doesn’t the shoot with Jourdan Dunn look super cute and fun. I love that these two brands chose black models to pose for and represent them. Here’s to hoping more brands follow suit soon!
Check out supermodel Jourdan Dunn in the December 2013 issue of Vogue. She was shot by Patrick Demarchelier. Since this is the holiday issue of Vogue, she aptly looks the part don’t you think? The plum eye makeup and the ruby nail polish adds to the holiday glam look, along with the David Morris jewels and Versace top. This is a very pleasant combination. I am already getting outfit ideas from this very picture! Photo spotted on Models of Color Tumblr.
Watch Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele, or CCDD as I like to call her, style Joan Smalls for V Magazine. Joan Smalls is styled up by the infamous French stylist to look like Tina Turner for V Magazine’s September issue. CCDD is one of my favorite stylists and herx editorials and styling gigs are practically famous. Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele is the one who styled Anna Wintor’s first Vogue cover after all. You know the one with the jeans and couture on it… Anyway. Get into the goodness of this video, and have a wonderful weekend!
My favorite September issue editorial so far has been Sessilee Lopez for Marie Claire Italia September 2013. It reminds me of those late 80s/early 90s fashion editorials, and Sessilee always has the best face and hair for an editorial throwback from that era. She looks amazing! I think I am going to be taking some serious style inspiration from this editorial starting with the spiral curls hanging out of the bowler hat! Photo info as well as the rest of the photos below!

This week’s Bad Bish is none other than Naomi Campbell and her MOTHER Valerie walking down the runway at the Thierry Mugler Spring/Summer 1994 fashion show. Now we know where her beauty comes from. Gif from Tumblr.
Malaika Firth was photographed by Steven Meisel for Prada’s new Fall/Winter 2013 ad campaign. Malaika Firth is the first black model to front an ad campaign for the Italian fashion house since Naomi Campbell was the face 19 years ago in 1994! Wow! This is a big honor. Prada usually only has one black model in each fashion show if that, so this is really big. Photo from Models of Color.
This morning I was perusing The Fashion Bomb Daily and came across this beautiful picture of Iman at the 4th Annual AmFar Inspiration Gala. The supermodel looked absolutely gorgeous in a red Valentino gown. Whatever she is doing at her age to look that flawless, it is werking! Give us your secrets Iman!
Even though the industry tries to act like we don’t exist, we in there! Thanks Tommy Ton for showing the world that black people love fashion too! [SOURCE]
I found this picture of Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss for the December 2012 issue of Interview Russia on Modelinia’s Tumblr page. I have seen other shots of the editorial featuring the two supermodels on other websites as well. If you want to see more, I would buy this particular issue of Interview Russia. Naomi and Kate look awesome. They seem to be aging very well. Don’t you think?
Check out Tyra Banks on the cover of Arise Magazine. I love this magazine. They actually carry this magazine in my local bookstore, so I might have to pick this one up. Photo from Design Scene.
Finally a BB Cream for women of color. I guess I can’t be really surprised that it took someone like Iman to do it though. Iman is launching a BB cream in December that is supposed to cover match 35 different skin tones. The BB cream will come in 6 different shades. I don’t know how much it will cost, but I am super excited. Photo from The Cut.
If you are like me, you probably geeked all the way out when you saw the Spice Girls and the British Supermodels, Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Georgia May Jagger, Jourdan Dunn, Lily Cole, Stella Tennant, Lily Donaldson, Karen Elson, and David Gandy, hit the stage. I screamed so loud, you could probably hear me outside of the house. I sang and danced while the Spice Girls sang, and nearly fell out when the supermodels walked on the stage. I had a blast for all of the 2.5 seconds each group was on stage. Photos from Elle.
Nineteen year old model Rose Cordero is pregnant. You might remember that that is the same age that fellow black model Jourdan Dunn got pregnant. Dunn’s career, and the careers of numerous other models have survived their pregnancies in recent years, so I don’t think Cordero will have any problems. Plus her star is on the rise. She will have time to bounce back. I was wondering why I didn’t notice her much during the recent fashion weeks. Photo fro HuffPost.
