#ThrowbackThursday: Black Model Was Cover Star For Elle

Hi Dolls,
Anyone remember this? This is a throwback of Elle Magazine's November 1997 issue, which featured the beautiful model Alek Wek as a cover star. I love that Elle (US) was bold enough to take this move, especially as many magazines that cater to European women have pointed out that when women of colour are used as cover stars, there is a big decline in magazine sales. We live in a multi-cultural world, and one day I do hope that the world and all its institutions i.e. beauty, magazine industry, media, etc.) will equally respect and value all humans regardless of their race, social class, nationality, gender and religion.



As always until next time, stay blessed and beautiful dolls xoxo
