French Vogue's First Black Cover Model Since '02

Model history has officially been made! French Vogue's March 2010 cover, on newsstands now, features its first solo Black model since Liya Kebede in 2002. The gorgeous cover girl is Rose Cordero, a Dominican newcomer who made a major splash during New York Fashion Week (we're obsessed with her almond-shaped eyes and chic, short natural 'do). Whether French Vogue chose Cordero in order to make up for last year's blackface scandal, or to salute one of fashion's fiercest new faces, we don't know--and, honestly, we don't care. This cover is beyond. Congrats, Rose! Read More: Catwalk Queen: Fashion Week Fall 2010French Vogue Features Models in BlackfaceVintage Vamp: This History of Black Models
