Liya Kebede Is First Black Model To Cover Vogue Paris In Five Years

Vogue Paris: Liya Kebede

Model Liya Kebede looks absolutely fab on the cover of Vogue Paris‘ May 2015 issue! We’d be even more excited if this wasn’t the first time in five years since a black model has covered the mag. But, hey, that’s not as bad as Vogue UK which took 12 years to feature a black model. Better late than never, right?

Well, we don’t want to rain on Kebede’s parade as we just love her perfectly coiled tendrils and banging graphic couture jumpsuit and patent leather boots by Christian Dior. And, Vogue wants this issue’s bold fashion to be our inspiration for “a fresh start for the new season.”

Let’s hope this is true on more than one level.
