LAST SLIDE

Fashion Month’s Top Models of Color

After rounding up the top models from this season's New York, London, Milan, and Paris shows, it became clear that there were no great strides in terms of diversity on the runways in the last month. As usual, the British catwalks were the most diverse (Liya Kebede, Jourdan Dunn, and newcomer Ji Young Kwak made our ranks) — it's where rookies test the waters and the designers are up for experimenting — and, at the opposite end of the spectrum, New York's models are getting whiter, as Jezebel pointed out. Setting aside the openers and closers of each show, there were a handful of models of color floating around fashion month. Take Fei Fei Sun, for example, who booked 52 shows; Grace Mahary, omnipresent in the four capitals; and Soo Joo Park, now a Karl Lagerfeld favorite. Click ahead to see who else made our roll of fashion month's top models of color.
