Quote of The Day

Chanel Iman covers the upcoming issue of Page Six magazine where she chats it up about her love life, relationship with mentor Big T and the melanin deficiency that’s been plaguing the fashion world:

“It’s not just black girls. It’s ethnic girls in general: Brazilian girls, Hispanic. You really don’t see a lot of Asians either. A lot of designers think that if every girl on the runway looks exactly alike, then people will come to the shows and buy the clothes because they won’t be focusing on the models….It’s not even just runway either… us ethnic girls should be getting a lot of the covers too! I would love to be on half of the campaigns these [white] girls are booking, all looking exactly alike. It’s not right. It’s not fair.”

Real talk. She’s not the only one fed up with these dried up pasty-kins models all over the damned place. Perhaps she should express her concerns with her mentor, Tyra, who seems hell bent on eliminating all the Black contestants off of ANTM by mid-season.
