The February 2022 issue of ‘British Vogue’ features nine African models with glorious African heritage that stretches from Senegal to Rwanda to Sudan to Nigeria to Ethiopia and beyond.
The jaw-dropping cover featured models like Adut Akech, Amar Akway, Majesty Amare, Dibaa Maty, Janet Jumbo, Akon Changkou, Abeny Nhial, Nyagua Ruea, and Anok Yaifull.
The British Vogue Editor-In-Chief Edward Enninful explained his inspiration for creating such a landmark moment for Black and African beauty.
“I saw all these incredible models from across Africa who were just so vivacious and smart.
These girls are redefining what it is to be a fashion model.
You know, fashion tends to follow waves.
We’ve had the Brazilian wave.
We had the Dutch wave, the Russian wave, the Eastern European wave… And while, in the last decade, the Black model has come to prominence, I love that we are finally giving more space to African beauty,” Enninful said.
These beautiful ladies were draped in their haute couture best, wearing the latest designs from Balenciaga, Yves Saint Laurent and Loewe, while being photographed in a sleek, polished and sophisticated way the ushers in the new era of Black models.
