black is beautiful

Naomi >>  We've seen some reaction to the skinny models outcry, but the attention allotted to the lack of model diversity has been slim . . . until now.  Instead of going the legislation route, rumors are swirling that a number of editorials highlighting black models, past and present, are being cultivated. 

It's even being suggested that Steven Meisel has shot an entire issue of Vogue Italia, using only black models.  If anyone was to pull such a stunt, it would be Vogue Italia.  I'm already envisioning Chanel Iman, Alek Wek, Jourdan Dunn, Liya Kebede, Naomi Campbell . . .

Speaking of Naomi, she joins Nina Garcia as the latest fashion insider slated to appear on Ugly Betty.  Naomi has been announced as a guest star on the show before, but this time it's finally happening.  She'll in the season finale of Ugly Betty . . . as herself.
