Model: Poppy Okotcha

Today I wanna talk about models, you know – the models that you see in runway fashion shows and magazine covers. You may ask yourself, whats so different about this subject? I’ve heard it all before, what about it? In reality, you have head about it but the models that you see are the typical norm thats all over the fashion scene.

Let me explain – models nowadays are normally white, slim, tall, fair-skinned and they have the hair that looks like they just came out of a Guiseppe Franco salon in Beverly Hills. Yeah, its all the job of a makeup and hair crew but lets face it, its the typical norm and I really feel like our black models are really being left behind. Let’s give recognition to our up and coming future black skinned models shall we?

They’re almost always tall with beautifully tanned skin, unique hair and they also have the amazing facial features that are to die for. We have to agree that our dark-skinned models are fierce, sexy, and they have a certain something about them that commands respect and admiration wherever they may be. Lets meet one of these beauties and you can come to your own conclusion, shall we…

We need more dark skinned models on the runway and on covers of magazines…hey, why not? They’re beautiful!

Meet the model: Poppy Okotcha – she’s one of model managements newest faces and she’s 19 years old from Marlborough, England. Her favorite designer is Alexander McQueen but she’s also fond of Alexander Wang and Marc Jacobs. Her future dream is to own her own eco-freindly fashion label. She also wants to change how little Afro hair products there are currently on the market. She would also love to someday portray Grace Jones because to her Grace is a powerful woman. I agree, Poppy – for sure she really is powerful and sexy! Here’s a few more pictures of this dark skinned beauty below…
