Black beauties

My goodness! The last two weeks of my life were definitely something else! From being extremely sad, to being extremely happy and just feeling nothing between the explosions of either wonderful or terrible mood. Now I feel exhausted.
Two important things happened, which will definitely influence my blogging. 1) My apartment was robbed and laptop was stolen. 2) I was chosen for the seminar on immigration issues - the event is going to take place in Spain and will last for a week. I hope to bring some good memories and pictures:)

But... coming back to the fashion issues. I would like to add one more thing on the black models trend. Here are some of the most interesting black girls on the runways at the moment. You may recognize some of them, but their names are definitely not big in the fashion world. Pity, some of them are really beautiful.

  1. Thank you for posting this, I have been a lover of high fashion since a child. It is good to know there are many beautiful black models of different types having wonderful steady jobs as high fasion models.
    I'm a singer/songwriter and model myself; Im a lifestyle and glamour model; and even though my category is different I support all aspects of modelling and will share your post with others who would benefit. Thanks again.
