She's on the US Vogue Cover featuring the next supermodels.
she is there just because she is black, you know they needed a balance
in any other way she wouldn't be
I agree, she was put on the cover because they needed somebody coloured, shes agreat model, but shes knowher near the league of Lily D, Stam, Sasha and Raquel.
I disagree. She has the potential to be a "supermodel" one day. She is much younger than the other models on the cover. She will look even better when she gets into her 20's. Plus, she is an American model. This makes her a good choice for U.S. Vogue.
It's a shame every single time a black model gets work, it's because "she's black." Maybe Anna Wintour likes her. Maybe the photographer is a fan. There are many other reasons she may have got that cover.
What about Liya Kebede in 2004? She definitely deserved the "supermodel" cover of that time. Was it because she was a good model, or the stereotypical "she's black" nonsense?
I don't know what country the previous commenter is from, but we don't use the term "coloured" anymore. That is a racist statement to make about a black person. Besides, I think Chanel is of a mixed racial heritage anyway. Therefore, using the "she's black" statement doesn't even make sense.
What are you going to say next? She only got the cover because she "looks black?" We seriously need to progress as a society if people are still making such ignorant statements.
Yes she has the potential to be a supermodel, but shes just a model right now!!
And stop trying to make me out as a racist, i'm coloured!!!, and i aploigise i didnt know saying somebody is coloured is racist i tend to use the phrase black people but i thought that Americans find that word racist, ive sed the word infront of my black friends 100times, they all use it.
And i like this model, all i said was she wasn't in the same league as some of the other models, and they've only put her on the cover because she is black, i was gonna say its becaus she is American, but there was Hilary Rhoda.
Liya Kebede deserved that cover becasue she was well established, you can not compare Chanel to LIya Kebede!!!!!!
And i've never said Nomi gets a cover cos she black.
I live near North London, i went to a very multicultrial school, i know peopel of all races, and i respect people of all races. Seriousley i think ur trying to make a really big deal about one post. And u have absoloute no right to determan somebody is ignorent from one post, thats just stupid and ignorent on ur part.
