A reader sent us an email pointing out that Style.com has a post about the models on the Spring runways. "Diversity was the buzzword," reads the copy. And indeed, there's Aminata Niaria from Senegal; Lakshmi Menon (seen on Vogue India); Liu Wen from China; and Philly's Sessilee Lopez. Four out of 10 are models or color. Interestingly, WWD reports that the "hottest models" right now are decidedly Caucasian: Russia's Natasha Poly and Britain's Lily Donaldson. [Style.com, WWD]
