PRADA IN DA HOOD?

Flaunt magazine depicts Prada's new line in a new light. Did you think it was just for skinny "White" boys? Think again. We're about to embark on a "new" era....minus the racial divide. It's about time!!!

Why is bringing in some black models immediately bringing Prada to the hood? Like all of them are from the hood

OMG they look awful!!
There is a reason black models are not used for Prada's runways or campaigns. because the clothes just don't look expensive on them at all.
they look cheap, dirt and ghetto.

Please realize that black models will never be the same as white models.

That comment is the most racist, ignorant comment I've read in a while. It just goes to show how simple minded some people are. It must have to do with someone's upbringing. Have you seen Spike Lee's new movie, Miracle at St. Anna? Go check it out if you haven't. Some of those same issues are addressed. We need to be more conscious and advocate change and equality in our society.

Black models are more than just a hanger. There is actually something refreshing about this photo.

I am not bias, but it seems with Caucasian models, they are so interchangeable and lack any individual personality of sorts (at least in photos).

Indeed that's an awful thing to say Betty. These clothes would have looked the same when being worn by 'caucasian' models or people of any other color, blue, green, red. The clothes themselves kind of look a bit out there, something you won't see on the street. I find the clothes a bit strange as well and I'm sure they would have looked as strange on any models nomatter the colour of their skin.
I can't believe anyone would dare to make such comments and it's hard to believe that there's one person on this planet that thinks this way.

When black ppl don't accomplish anything, we're called lazy ppl. Buy when we do overcome ignorant ppl and any other set backs we're still hated on..LOL! I think we're the most hated race because we're the best. Thanks for the compliment Ugly Betty..lol!

The group shoot is a Big no for me. However, the Shawn Sutton and Marcus Lloyd is wonderful.

AND to the fool who says PRADA don't use black models on the runway needs to do more research – on any major fashion capital's runway the big diesgers will only use models with there sample sizes (which is normally very slim). now most black models are not as slim as the white kids (some), but the few that are slim like Papis of JOY Models in Milan, Tayo of UNITED Models in London and Amando of Independent in London have all work for the fashion house. So get your fact right.

And I will say Rednyc is one of the fashion forward agency around the world today, not only do they have I believe the biggest black models out their – but they are also finding this kids and getting them great jobs.

So backoff you haters.

RED, keep up the great work, and when you hopefully have a or open a Agency in London, we welcome you.

Just make sure you get some great slim guys – its very different over here.

I think this is a joke! Betty was totally wrong, but if you as the booker are going to make stupid posts like "prada in the hood" what do you expect? I think your agency is a joke within itself and as for your black models they need to realize VIBE and the other hip hop magazines don't make them supermodels! Anderson is in the last pick and he is doing this because he chooses to not because he has to like your models whom are desperate for anything! For future reference don't put yourself in the pigeon-hold and not expect people to react to your ignorance!
