    She looks stunning, let’s give it to her for serving it to the camera. However, I wish these magazine’s would diversify their pool of models so that spreads like this aren’t so hard to swallow. More models of varying ethnicity that SHOW would be more palatable.

    These look like the tech hands of the shoot played dress up and took selfies while the ethic models were on lunch. Nothing against the photographer just my reflection on model selection.

    This is artistic. Definitely nothing wrong with a white woman embracing African Culture but there should have been African models hands down. Also, I don’t really like the make up…. It definitely needs to be done better and it’s all too much clashing. If your trying to do high fashion, keep it classy not undone.

    Can people get off the color thing!!!! I’m proud they embraced the African culture no matter the color of their skin!!!! Smh

    I agree Michelle. I am considered “white” race and my two boys are Kenyan. I love embracing my families culture and during my time spent in Africa the women were constantly making me beautiful African dresses to wear and they loved it as well. As much as I think it would have been good to have different races doing the spread especially an African Woman I think they purposefully used a white woman to make it different to get people’s attention. Negative attention to the designer is sometimes better than no attention at all but I do see why people would argue for African models, although I feel as though the African Americans are more against a white woman doing the spread than African woman. That’s just my observance but maybe I’m wrong….. And like I said before it should have been done more classy and less costume but it is artistic and I appreciate all art.

    I don’t understand it is she trying to channel her inner black women this looks crazy plenty of black models and this is what they chose tsk tsk

    In the model world things are crazy because there are somethings or shoots I can’t do because of my skin color height size and build they really dropped the ball on this one. African American models are few why not open up the spectrum

    I think this would’ve been better with many different models, including some of African descent
    other than that, I love the styles, colors, and patterns

    This is art and the point of art is too have people connect with some style of art without actually saying it we all know that it is African fashion/art style but without the african wardrobe and colors with only the art on the face we would get it mixed up the culture. Although a black person would have embodied more style i understand what they were trying to do but to me no one can rock any designs thats from africa the way we as blacks do we put our emotions and body language in art as well

    How can you “appreciate” black culture and not EVEN AT LEAST USE A BLACK MODEL. SMH!!!!!

  13. Nigel Pembroke-Sloan January 12, 2014 Reply

    Where are the BLACK MODELS?!?!?

  14. Nigel Pembroke-Sloan January 12, 2014 Reply

    No we can’t off the colour thing! Considering the Black and Brown brothers and sisters in the Fashion indudtry are NOT shown nor given the same respect nor exposure opportinities, which lead to money campaigns, as their xhite counterparts! You Black Women not expressing outrage, should stop drinking the white Kool Aid!

    Dislike… 🙁

    It’s kinda disheartening that some can’t appreciate the APPRECIATION of African culture , no matter if it’s through a pale skinned girl. I think it’s beautiful that they TRIED for heavens sake. Now,could I do it better?…maybe…no,defiantly (it’d knock down the awkwardly unduly commercialism by a minimun 50%),but not many go on a rant about a gorgeous black girl in plaid or Scottish print…when there’s defiantly something unconventional about that. (LOL,AT LEAST can we just take a moment to Thank Jesus it’s not blackface)

    Robin LaStarra Ball I think the problems people have with editorials of models who are not black. modeling in things that represent african culture,are because so many black models have a hard time getting high fashion work. There isn’t a shortage of black models in the fashion industry, why aren’t they being selected for these spreads? I’m sure there was even one who was close to this models complexion if they were going for a lighter complected woman.

    i am not anyway racist but these outfits look clownish on a white person. try a black model next time

    Smh @ This Ridiculousness!

  30. Wordie M. Nolcox January 31, 2014 Reply

    Christabel, I agree here, this is where color comes in, not with the girl from 12 yrs a slave, they should have used a model of color. They (whites) don’t even dress like this in Africa.
