    5. Italian Vogue features an all-black editorial, "The Black Allure," which includes some of today's top models of color, like Joan Smalls, Jourdan Dunn, Arlenis Sosa, and Chanel Iman.

    6. The Cut stated "It's difficult to say whether these pages are gimmicks or actual steps towards fashion becoming more inclusive," but their commenters didn't think so. There are some 3 pages of commenters discussing what a gross gimmick this is. Do you agree?:

    lovehatelove: "this is not a step in the right direction. i would rather see one black model featured in an editorial with no mention of race. this is a bit exploitive."

    tr_ro: "Now they put black people, but they don't mix them with other people?? What?? Why? Whats the point? This doesn't really say diversity which is what people want!"

    glennbelverio: "When it's presented in such an exoticized, segregated and cliched way, of course it's a gimmick."

I’ve never been to a fashion show before.' I always take it for granted because that’s what I do. It’s fun when people who haven’t experienced it get a chance to and see what it’s about.
