    This is a short documentary produced by the National Film Board (Canada). I think it's quite poignant. What are your thoughts?

    the model is so beautiful, it is sad to hear that she has to struggle because of the colour of her skin. I always like to think of fashion has being really diverse, but the truth is that it isn't :(

    I watched it and really felt for the girl. The "white girl dipped in chocolate" thing is so true. Liya Kebede/ Yasmine Warsame anyone.:innocent:

    The saddest part for me is right in the beginning, when she says "That's what I look like... I'm sorry". Even though she's clearly not sorry, it's awful that she might think she should be. And that Italian guy going on and on about her "large" hips... give me a break! :rolleyes:
