ALLURE Magazine: Beauty is Diverse

The April 2017 issue of Allure features three models on the cover...three models...no celebrities!!! Hallelujah!!! 

"Our skin is so much more than a reflection in the mirror. Our skin is the metaphor that defines how we’re seen—and how we see ourselves. 41 women of color to tell the story of their lives through their skin—and skin tone. Because our skin can be both a vulnerability and a defense. But most importantly, it can be a source of celebration. " ~via @allure

Models Janiece Dilone, Aamito Lagum and Imaan Hammam make for a stunning cover featuring our diverse skin tones. 

Shout out to my girl Tiffany of the fabulous blog "Beauty is Diverse" for being an inspiration to so many women when it comes to highlighting the beauty and style of various models and women of color. 

Take a hint Essence, VOGUE, Harper's Bazaar, etc...I'm (I think we all are) sick of the celebrity covers! If magazine publishers want to know why their sales are so low, here's your answer...we don't care for the celebrity covers unless they feature someone we like and they can't be repetitive covers of the same celebrity every three months. 

The best thing they can do is to feature diverse models on the covers of their magazines with accompanying editorials and their magazine sells just might pick up.
