So I’ve already talked about the all black people issue of Vogue Italia that is set to hit newsstands in June, but what I didn’t realize is that the issue will also feature some of my peeps. Arlenis, a fresh faced Dominican model, will be gracing the pages of the issue with a solo spread and one where she’ll play model friendly with Alek Wek, Jourdan and Iman Chanel.
So that begs the question to be asked.
Is it an all Black Vogue if some of the models aren’t black? Or is this more a non-white Vogue?
Either way, it’s kind of exciting to see a model on the runway from the island countries. It isn’t my native Puerto Rico, but I’ve spent enough time with Dominicandies to call them friends.
