Color Blind

All black models look the same? Apparently editors think so! Fashionista's Britt Aboutaleb questions's ability to "tell the difference between Sasha P. and Gemma" but not between Chanel Iman (a Teen Vogue cover girl!) and Jourdan Dunn. Considering that is the "online home" of W and Vogue, two repeat offenders in our own investigation into the lack of black models in magazines this doesn't really surprise us. Maybe this is what happens when Vogue MainGay, Andre Leon-Talley, isn't on hand to point out who-is-who of the three black models in the fashion world! [Fashionista]

Well considering that all models look alike in the first place, it's not surprising. While some have standout features, most are just a drop in a sea of ambiguity.

That said, Jourdan Dunn and Chanel Iman do have obvious differences, and like I mentioned on Fashionista, they even had Natasha Poly and Lily Donaldson mistaken. Serious party foul.
