Short Film Explores Black Model's Plight
The disappearance of Black models in ads, magazines and on runways is
nothing new. But a new short documentary, "The Colour of Beauty," sheds
light on the bleak situation in a whole new way. The film follows
24-year-old Jamaican-American model, Renee Thompson, as she goes on
casting calls for Fashion Week -- and some of the casting agents' musings will
make your hair stand on end... Here's what you had to say: Jade commented: "How can you not see the beauty in every ethnicity? It's utterly mind boggling." Justina wrote: "It is a natural phenomenon that when girls hit puberty, their hips gets wider. Geez, why don't these people just hire tall lanky male androgynous to wear dresses and heels."
