Sessilee Lopez - She's In Vogue!

My Favourite American Model.

And girl crush - 20 year old Sessilee Lopez has graced many covers of Vogue, international campaigns and walked catwalks the world over. I love the fact that she was on the cover of Latina magazine, because of her Dominican, Portuguese, Cuban heritage. But it's such a shame reading a few negative comments of the fact that because she is also mixed with African American or that she doesn't speak Spanish therefore she shouldn't be on the cover. Who says!? That type of racism (any type) is so disappointing, sad, dated and colonial.

BUT there are plenty of positive comments that over ride the above, praising the diversity of Latina magazine, championing and embracing the mix of cultures, identities and ethnicity's.
 She's simply stunning and I have walked with her in London shows and she is always the consummate pro.

Let's take a moment to admire Sessilee's beauty.
