The New Tyra and Naomi: Jordan and Chanel Iman + The Hollis & Ariel Show

In Fashion, Women on October 5, 2009 at 9:31 pm

Clutch Magazine and NY Mag are talking about the new Teen Vogue cover that features arguably today’s top black models.  The magazine gets extra props after putting Native American and New Moon actor Taylor Lautner on their October cover

Now while I love these two new models, I have a problem with the fact that the modeling industry is so unrealistic when it comes to body types that they need teenagers to wear their clothes.  Remember, Chanel Iman started modeling at a very young age.  And does anyone else think that this is too much considering Chanel Iman very much looks her age?

Anyway, at the very least, these two have long careers ahead of them.  Great job Teen Vogue!
