It’s been a while since I have done a ‘black girls in magazines’ post so I am glad to restart this series! What do you all think of the cover? Before I hear anyone say Leona is boring, yes she is but like all new artists, she is shy. She will get spunk up that personality eventually.
I have issues with i-D in the first place for having that samboesque fashion page from last year but Leona is on the cover and I like her fringe. And yeah, Leona is black too 😉 I am going to have to hunt this magazine down because seeing black people in the media is frankly something still I need to get used to.
And no, I will refrain from saying how Eurocentric she looks and how they always play up her eyes. Oops, I just did. There is nothing wrong with this but I just think Leona is pretty as a black woman, not because she has light eyes, just incase anyone thinks I am colourist lol.
