Fashion industry types are thinking about the future now that the "all black" issue of Italian Vogue is officially a "success," reports CNN. "All the agents were happy about the issue because it gives us hope that other people will catch on and decide that it's OK to use more black girls," says Carlos Ojeda, an agent at New York Models. "It's OK to have more than just one, and she doesn't have to always be Naomi." Bethan Hardison, who scheduled several summits and town hall meetings about the lack of black models in the past year and has another set for September, says: "We just have to keep the bar high and keep showing beautiful women and pictures." The question is: When do you know for sure that things have changed? [CNN]
