Hailing it as a new era in the fashion industry, current British Vogue’s editor-in-chief, Edward Enninful, who identifies as British Ghanaian, said the magazine cover was an important statement of anti-tokenism.
“No longer just one or two dark-skinned girls mingled backstage, but a host of top models took a meaningful, substantial, and equal place among the most successful women working in fashion today.
It means so much to me to see it.”
However, the magazine cover and photographs have elicited mixed reactions with many, especially from the black community slamming it for the bad lighting, bad editing, and ‘over darkening the models’.
I find the lighting and tones beautiful.
But my personal complaint is that publications and brands are constantly communicating that the deepest darkest hue in complexion represents the truest essence of Blackness or even Africanness.
This is clearly a mark of the white gaze.
