I agree she has an amazing presence in the photos that i personally think nobody can beat. Her eye contact is amazing, she works the product her face is just incredible, and she owns every shot. But I think a major reason she has not scored a major european campaign is because of the color of her skin unfortunately.

^ Although I try not to think along those lines (naively)......you have to wonder at this stage in her career if that is the reason.

I don't understand either. It is high time as far as I am concerned. I get tired of singing the same song, though.

^here's an article that came out today on the subject. It may be extreme (or is it?) but it is thorough. Only 14 American Vogue covers out of 1,416 were of minorities?

^I'm not gonna read the article but your comment about the 14 covers doesn't surprise me . I think Teen Vogue and Men's Vogue have had more minorities in their covers within the short time they've been out than US Vogue has ever had. If they can step up, why the hell can't US Vogue? -sighs- But I'm with Crakk, I'm really tired of playing that tune again.

This is a REALLY GOOD Interview - Sessilee
She is very inspiring and smart girl.

Here's an excerpt:
Quote:
Thereís still a lot more I want to accomplish in modeling and outside of it. Itís a beautiful time to be in this profession, because there are so many other models of color ó girls like Chanel Iman, Jourdan Dunn, and Arlenis Sosa. In the beginning it felt very competitive. There was so much awareness of what we were all doing and it felt like a race for a second. But it reaches a point where you have to ask ĎWho cares?í If they are working and Iím working, then itís all good. The truth is, we are all friends. Arlenis and I are godmothers to Jourdanís baby. Those are my girls and I love them to pieces. I am just as happy for them as they are for me.

I treasure those relationships because sometimes being a woman of color in this industry can be frustrating. It seems like if a client wants an ďethnicĒ model for a shoot, theyíll either go for a light-skinned girl or the darkest girl you can possibly imagine. It is understandable because fashion is about making statements. But sometimes being in between can be frustrating. There have been times when Iíve been told that such and such designer is not using black models in their catwalk this season, but Iíll check out photos after the show and there is a black model. More often than not, the explanation is the girl is not really black, since sheís light-skinned. Itís a pain, but Iím hopeful that one day the industry will see that black ó in all its shades ó is beautiful.

somebody NEEDS to cast Sess in a major campaign. it quite literally enrages me that such a superb model isn't getting work just because she's black. it's ridiculous. i hate it.

^YES! Agree totally. Sessi makes mince-meat out of most of the girls working right now. Campaign time for sure...can Major do it for her???

hopefully the friendship she has with Steven Meisel could land her on an exclusive campaign soon
