Chanel Iman for The Edit

4:15 AM

We all know fashion sometimes can be one sided. Its one of the reasons i started blogging. I could never really connect with the fashion and models portrayed on the covers growing up. This is why I love Chanel Iman so much. She is one of few models who talks openly about racism in the fashion world. In the article written on Net A Porter she talks about how Lupita's win was a win that felt "like we had all been given the award".

I remember reading another article about her which she talks about how brands wouldn't book her in for runways as they already had "one black girl". She talks about being in Beyonces 'YONCE' video and loved the fact like Beyonce allowed the 3 supermodels , all successful in their own right to come together and show the world that they don't have to fight against each other.

Peep the shoot below. I love all the metallics used. Compliments her so well.
