Betty Adewole is the new face for Tom Ford’s Spring/Summer 2014 beauty campaign. The 21 year old Nigerian-British model has appeared in British Vogue, Alexander McQueen’s Spring/Summer 2014 show and Teen Vogue. I can’t wait to see the final spread!
While I congratulate Adewole on her recent triumphs, I would be remised if I did not take this time, especially during Black History Month, to shine light on some of the first black models.
The list goes on. Essence has a beautiful slideshow of the milestones made my black models.
