The Photograph: Black Beauties x Vogue Italia May 2011

That’s it! Farewell London I’m moving to Italy… Kidding… I am tempted though. Vogue Italia pays tribute to Black Beauty in this vibrant and vivid shoot by Ellen von Unworth…


I do love it but I’d love to see a spread that captured the romantic or whimsical side of black beauty. We go hard edged, super sexy or brilliantly bold but we can also do classical dreamy elegance. I think that’s why I love Vlisco so much for showing that side.

Anyway, that aside bravo Vogue Italia especially for featuring those full and fabulous fros. Harlem Loves salutes you!

Amongst many other things, I'm a 30-something contemplative Londoner making the daily commute between contentment and ambition.When not blogging, I'm using my talents for good as communications director at Gingerland and co-founder of Love Harlem.
