With the heightened awareness of racial equality in society & the media, the all Black Vogue issues, and with pivotal times in which we live as we're about to embark on something so earth-shattering that the history pages are primed and waiting with baited pen for the next's no huge stretch of the imagination that when Julie approached me with this proposal....I jumped all over the prospect of featuring our Black boys in one major fashion editorial....all blonde no less. Heck, I'd have jumped for this without all the precluding factors....especially with the fact that hands down, Red has the best collection of working Black boys....hands down. As for the outcome.....well, have a look and let me know what you think. :)

I want to be brutally honest and say this is horrible!!! I am a model myself and I am insulted for the way you try to make your black boys something they are not. They should not be ashamed of themselves and should have the balls to know when to say NO!!! I am not hating because I myself work regularly and do not need to look ridiculous to receive attention!

Sounds like you are hating...and the fact that you had to say "I am not hating"....Maybe go and watch the movie and you will understand the story better...

Salieu- Bennetton Campaign, Thom Browne, Buckler, DNR cover, Paper Magazine, Japanese Vogue etc.

Dominique- New Bennetton campaign, Diesel, Givenchy etc...
