The beautiful press for SUPREME MODELS keeps coming! My baby is almost a year old! I can’t believe that. It seems like just a moment ago the book that took eight years to create was released into the world. It changed everything. I can’t remember who I was before I became an author.
The press for SUPREME MODELS: Iconic Black Women Who Revolutionized Fashion continues to keep coming. In the past month, SUPREME MODELS has been mentioned by Grazia UK, Vogue Ukraine, on Access Hollywood, and Book Authority proclaimed it one of the “100 Best Fashion Books of All Time.” It’s incredibly thrilling. I’m humbled and proud.
FASHION GONE ROGUE has long been one of my favorite blogs. Imagine my absolute glee when I was asked to do an interview for them? Click HERE to read my interview and see a gallery of the world’s most beautiful women within the pages of Supreme Models: Iconic Black Women Who Revolutionized Fashion.
Hey, friends please follow my new adventure Mastering Modeling! Since the publication of SUPREME MODELS, I’ve gotten hundreds of tweets, emails, and dms from people pursuing a modeling career and models trying to get to the next level. My pals and I started Mastering Modeling to answer questions and help models succeed.
In our lifetime. Rihanna is the first black woman on the cover of British Vogue’s September issue in its 102 year history. Edward Enninful is the first black editor of British Vogue and this is his first September issue. 23 year old Tyler Mitchell is the first black photographer to shoot a Vogue cover. He’s also one of the youngest photographers to do so.
Rihanna was photographed by Nick Knight, and styled by the incredible Edward Enninful. Beyoncé is wearing a floral headpiece crafted by Rebel Rebel, and on another cover is wearing a tiered dress by Alexander McQueen. Sublime.
I am feeling all kinds of good about 2018’s September Issues. If you know anything about fashion, you know that the September issue is the biggest and most important issue of the year for magazines. With Lupita N’yongo on the cover of Porter Magazine, Tracee Ellis Ross on the cover of Elle Canada, Zendaya on the cover of Marie Claire, and Yara Shahidi on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter this is a historic moment in fashion! My favorite? Model Slick Woods, pregnant, on the cover of Elle UK.
