Vogue recently released its list of 9 rising model stars to be on the look out for 2015 and the list is quite impressive. With Kendall Jenner being undoubtedly the break out model star of 2014, it will be interesting to see which one of these models will or can take the reigns. It will also be interesting to see if this list would expand to women of color.
While I love a good Vogue read and am in love with fashion, it is sometimes discouraging to flip through magazines and not see models who look similar to myself or to continue to see the same models of color rehashed and repurposed for multiple fashion ads and campaigns. We know that these chosen few cannot be the ONLY beautiful or model attractive women of color that exists in the entire world, can it?
I digress slightly. Perhaps a list that captures the true beauty of humanity and our differences as portrayed by our media is needed? Stay tuned. In the meantime check out our 3 favorites from the list!
Hailey Baldwin, New York
Stephen Baldwin’s daughter is making waves on runways and social media alike. She gives off a beachy and Cali vibe that can definitely be appreciated for an everyday girl next door look.
Josie Canseco, Los Angeles
She reminds me of Anna Nicole and I love it! Anna Nicole’s look added natural sex appeal to Guess ads and I can certainly see Josie being able to do that as well.
Taylor Hill, Colorado
Can you say girl next door overload? Her dark hair and full lips definitely gives her a little something extra and highlights the influences of many different ethnic mixes in the States.
