Black Models Make Weak Showing in September Fashion Magazines


Halle Berry is on the cover of September's Vogue, and poses for a solo spread inside the magazine, but she's not a model, she's an actress. Black models appeared with greater frequency in this year's September issues than they did in magazines a couple of years ago. But according to Jezebel, which tallied the number of black models appearing in this year's major American September editorial features, most still aren't landing solo editorials. Vogue cast black models for multi-model editorials, but none for her own spread. Meanwhile Cosmopolitan, Harper's Bazaar, Lucky, and Marie Claire cast no black models for September editorials.
