Now whilst we may be a long way off making the cover, the second page and a few other pages within this issue of the magazine are fronted by a stunning model (unfortunately I’ve scoured the magazine and cannot find her name anywhere). Even so, I really applaud Look magazine for featuring a range of models of all different skintones.
There is nothing I hate more when magazines do fashion features that are only suitable for tanned skin, as I think what’s the point in me buying this if it won’t suit me? Thankfully this issue does diversify, and hopefully it will open the floodgates for more publications to follow suit.
Afterall, it’s not just lack of make-up shades that us fairer folk struggle with finding – clothing choices can also have an impact. This is why it’s refreshing to see Look realise that not everyone is bronzed, and just because we are not doesn’t mean to say we don’t deserve to find nice clothes that suit us – not wash us out or make us feel self conscious. I have posted some of the pictures from the editorial above. Let me know what you think!
