More Than A “Passing Fancy” – Flaviana Matata in the February 2011 Issue of Dazed & Confused



Oh Flaviana!
2011 is surely the year of the African model. African models including Ajak Deng, Aminata Niaria, Georgie Badiel, Flaviana Matata & Ataui Deng have graced the pages of Vogue, i-D, Uptown and other high profile publications.
Some have nabbed coveted campaigns such as Kenzo which features Ataui Deng in their Kenzo Spring 2011 campaign.
We have had our eyes on Flaviana Matata for a while and things keep getting better.
Flaviana is featured alongside Ling Ling in an editorial titled “Passing Fancy” in the February 2011 issue of Dazed & Confused.
The editorial was shot by photographer Mel Bles with styling by Katie Shillingford.

      And what she should have worn? Straight hair? Why does EVERYBODY need to wear their hair straight? Aren’t we Africans here? Most of our hair grows in AFROS. Why not wear what comes naturally to us? Afro-textured hair is absolutely gorgeous and it looks fabulous on this model. Too bad you are too narrow-minded to see that.

      ACTUALLY we were talking about her natural bald look (well at least I WAS), as most of her know her to have.
      just because somsone said she’d look better without the Afro wig doesn’t automatically mean we are talking about straight hair, it could have been curly hair for all you knnow.
      abeg, calm down! you are getting worked up over nothing.
      and just because its an Afro doesn’t automatically make it cute, there are DIFFERENT types of Afros.
      this one is obviously a processed wig, abeg!
