So, what’s the deal with Black women been different. Is it just a fashion thing? Or can this be an advantage to the fashion industry? It looks like many are wondering if the industry still has a place for these women.
The Black female model was once considered to be nothing more than “flotsam and jetsam.” Sure, there were some beautiful Black female models in the past, but with the development of technology and the rising demand for them, their place is no longer such a vacant one.
In terms of why Black women are better looking models, it is all because of the same reasons that men are better looking versions: they’re better dressed and better skinned. Men who shave every day, and who put on make up, and wax all the time would be the epitome of “I am just not into the beauty area.” They want to be in control, to be the star.
Women who don’t care about who they look like, don’t care about who they are, have more control over the situation. To put it simply, they will provide you all you need and much more if you give them all of the resources.
Now, the lovely thing about being a model is that you may be as unique or as your own style as you choose. You can also put your name on the side of your Bentley, you can dress yourself in whatever you choose, and most importantly, you are able to go out with just about anybody who would like to see you. What is better than that?
The beauty of being a model is that it comes with a stipulation: You have to bring in money. That is the only rule. If you do not have the cash to pay the bills, then you are not going to be able to get on stage to put on a show for the cameras. If that is the case, then you really are not going to be able to pay a high price for your fashion career. Your brand name is worth something, and the demand for models will continue to grow.
Many black women are looking at the young girls that are showing up in the magazines as versions and are wondering why it is that they are not getting the jobs. And some are pointing fingers at the respective businesses for not giving them an opportunity.
Most of us do not like to admit that we have any flaws in our beauty standards. For most of us, it is not a big deal, and we do not take it personally. But there are those who do feel that they need to act differently, or that they want to prove to others that they are the best.
When it comes to black models, that is exactly what they are doing. They are taking a stand for themselves and proving to the world that they are equal, to those men who go out there and throw their money around and show off to the world their best assets, without having the same.
Black women are taking the weight off their shoulders, by proving that they can be just as capable as the other women in the business. Now, who is taking the lead? The ladies are!
