Pretty Girl Rock

This month Vogue Italia showed some love to the cocoa skinned models of the industry in an editorial titled The Blackallure. The editorial features Arlenis Sosa Peña, Ajak Deng, Chanel Iman, Georgie Biddiel, Jourdan Dunn, Lais Ribeiro, Melodie Monrose, Mia Aminata Niaria, Rose Cordero and Sessilee Lopez. The girls were shot by Emma Summerton and styled by Edward Enninful. I'm happy that black models are getting a little more face time in magazines, not to make a statement but because they are just as good as any other model. Below are a couple of pics from the editorial , the rest can be seen at fashioncopious.

Chanel is wearing a beautiful Versace gown that we have seen a lot on the red carpet. January Jones wore a red one to the Golden Globes and Blake Lively wore a shorter version at another red carpet event.

On another note last week marked my first days interning at a prominent model/talent agency here in Houston. The first couple of days were spent learning all of the basics; who's who and how to screen calls for new talent. I got to file comp cards and assisted with the set up of one of the agency's open calls. On Sunday I interned for a local stylist, who I've worked with in the past, at a photo shoot that was held for some of the models who needed to update their portfolios. It was a long day, but it was spent doing something I love! I'll continue to blog about my intern experiences in future posts.
