Leomie Anderson On Modelling While Black

Dark-skinned beauty Leomie Anderson sounded off to The Sunday Times in an open letter about being a model of color. In her words:

The idea of fashion looking better on white skin is associated with an old sense of elitism, yet society has become much more diverse. In time, I think fashion will change.

Black Fashion has the whole missive for those who aren’t Times subscribers.
