Print + Colour = Pop! Burkinabé model Georgie Badiel editorial for Uptown Magazine by Marc Baptiste



What a stellar fashion blend! Photographer Marc Baptiste, model Georgie Badiel and pieces from designers including Lola Faturoti, Olori by Adeleke Sijuwade and Etro.
Totally loving the whimsical bright yellow backdrop!

For the longest time we erroneously assumed, Georgie was from the Caribbean. Model – Georgie Badiel is actually from Burkina Faso. She is currently based in New York and is represented by Muse Model Management NYC.
The editorial is featured in the new issue of Uptown Magazine.
Check out the editorial below.

      lol…would you rather they wear a tacky weave of a hair texture that would never naturally grow from their head? some black models shave their hair if they think they have a nice head shape which will get them more noticed. nothing wrong with that.

    I totally Second Femi D. There’s nothing wrong the “stereotypical” haircut of black models! They look more natural and photograph better. It’s just like questioning why white models have a full head of long, curly and silky hair. Pointless, don’t you think?

    Its like asking ‘why European models cut their hair to what ever is hot that season?’. Modellings a job, so if your professional you go with the look that makes you the most money, or the look that makes you the most iconic. I think short hair looks typically African and beautiful, its a contrast to mimicking the European look which has typically been what’s deemed a ‘hot’ every season.

    I really like the prints that are out this season!
