Vogue Paris Features 1st Black Cover Model in Five Years

vogue paris

*It’s been half a decade since Vogue Paris put a black model on its cover.

Dominican model Rose Cordero last had the honor in March 2010. A five-year drought followed, with white models like Carolyn Murphy, Kate Moss, Lara Stone and Daria Werbowy fronting the glossy multiple times each.

The whitewash comes to an end this month with the May 2015 issue featuring cover girl Liya Kebede.

The Ethiopian-born model, designer and philanthropist is the first woman of color, period, to appear on the cover in the time span.

Per Fashionista.com:

Kebede has fronted Vogue Paris in the past, the last time in May of 2002. Rose Cordero was the next model of color to score a solo cover, but not until eight years later in March of 2010. Before that, in 2008, both Naomi Campbell and Noémie Lenoir were featured on covers, but both shared their month with a white supermodel — Kate Moss and Laetitia Casta, respectively. Despite their appearance inside the magazine’s editorials and their status as globally known supermodels, neither Joan Smalls nor Jordan Dunn has ever covered Vogue Paris, although Dunn recently made headlines for her February 2015 issue of Vogue UK, as she was the first black model to cover the magazine since 2002.
