Harper’s Bazaar Arabia Celebrates the Beauty of Diversity with 5 African Models as April Cover Stars



Harper’s Bazaar Arabia is tapping into the diversity market by using five African American Models as cover stars for their April Issue.

The fashion industry has an ability to make the less visible, visible.” model Jourdana Phillips, one of five cover stars to front this issue, tells the magazine. She is pictured on the cover alongside Lameka Fox, Grace Mahary, Ajak Deng and Nykhor Paul.

The inspiration for the story being told by the magazine is the sentiment of Gucci’s creative director Alessandro Michele, who told Bazaar after his A/W17 show, “If we are going to push the conversation forward then we have to look beyond simply talking about models on the runway, and focus instead on individuality and faces that show humanity.”

    I’m sorry Bella Naija Style but biko is it “African” or “African American”; stick to one. Misleading headline….

      They should have just used the term “black” because only two are American, and only three are African (Eritrean, Sudanese, and Sudanese), But then again even Americans misuse the term “African-American”… people tend to just use it to refer to any black person whether they’re actually American or not.
