Oh My Darling

I loved this editorial I flipped to in my July issue of US ELLE magazine. I know what you’re thinking, but it wasn’t just because it’s pink.

Firstly, my coveted Miu Miu sandals are in nearly every shot. Secondly, it’s full of pretty glamour: opera-length pearls, sheer fabrics, springy curls, and boudoir fashion. Sure, she’s making the same face in every photo, but I loved that it wasn’t just another white girl. I’m glad to see that magazines like ELLE are finally waking up and casting beautiful models like Noemie Lenoir in editorials other than something tribal themed (makes me sick to think of the stereotyping that goes on with those!).

I think she did a wonderful job!

But Noemie – you’re not Zoolander. Get some more facial expressions. You look pretty though. xoxo

    loving the Miu Mius!

  • Wow I love her hair, it's gorgeous. I recently saw a short documentary on being a black model in the fashion industry and how blatantly discriminant many design houses are. It's as if they were stuck in the 1940s!
