British Vogue is celebrating the rise of African models on its February 2022 cover, featuring nine black women ‘redefining what it means to be a model.’

Starring models Adut Akech, Amar Akway, Majesty Amare, Akon Changkou, Maty Fall, Janet Jumbo, Abény Nhial, Nyagua Ruea and Anok Yai, the cover was styled by the Editor-in-Chief of British Vogue. Edward Enninful OBE.

This is the first time Vogue has featured a group of black women this size on the cover, and while many have praised their work, others have criticized the creative team for “serving ‘ for the ‘white man’s look’.

Aside from February being recognized as black history month, it’s also fashion month and what better time to publish a cover like this.

Vogue appointed Mr. Enninful editor-in-chief of British Vogue in 2017, replacing Alexandra Shulman, after the publication was criticized for a lack of diversity, and quickly assembled a team of 15 women to bring it back. diversity for editions across Europe.

Looks like Enninful is doing its job and making the fashion industry a little more inclusive.

Not everyone feels the same way, however, and Enninful has received backlash online, with dozens of fans claiming the low-light image appears to make models, who have many skin tones, to the point of being unrecognizable and looking like a mannequin.

One online user wrote, “Look I’ve been a fan of British Vogue since Mr Enninful became EIC but really I’m not sure why the cover isn’t well lit and why the models are were made into mannequins and we lost their features and beauty.”

While another user said: “I don’t care, I don’t care. Have you captured the most beautiful women on the planet and made sure we can’t see them in a visibility problem? @BritishVogue, I shook my head. ”

When explaining the inspiration behind the shoot, Edward said: “I’ve seen all these incredible models from all over Africa who are very vivacious and smart.”

He continued, “These girls are redefining what it means to be a fashion model. We need to make sure these girls last. We have to invest in them, nurture them, and support them with editorial, with advertising, with performances. I was sad and heartbroken when I saw the girls who were on the rise suddenly suddenly turned off. We need to make sure these girls last. We have to invest in them, nurture them, and support them with editorial, with advertising, with performances. It should be 360. Alek Wek doesn’t suddenly become Alek Wek. There’s a group of us behind girls like her, pushing them forward. This is what we have to do in all our different roles. There’s a group of us behind girls like her, pushing them forward. This is what we have to do in all our different roles.”

South Sudanese comedian Akau Jambo weighed in on the subject and went deeper into her frustrations in the February issue of British Vogue.

“I am South Sudanese. I’ve lived here probably longer than these models and I can assure you that no one moves around looking like this. As an artist, I can also assure you that this is not art. This is Black Porn. Black Fetish. Reverse bleaching. ”

Model Iwani weighs in on her experience posing with Vogue and this current fashion aesthetic is nothing new.

Is it a trend? Is it art? Perhaps a fetish, only time will truly tell.
