Dominicana Rose Cordero is on the cover of the new edition of French Vogue!
Not only is this her first Vogue cover but it marks the first time since 2002 that a black model was the sole cover model for French Vogue. The last one to get that ‘honour’ was Liya Kebede. Noemie Lenoir also had the cover of French Vogue in June 2008 but she was one of two covers – the other cover was a white model – Laetitia Casta.
Great company to be in and good for Rose! She looks absolutely beautiful – very vulnerable and soft, which is interesting because Rose’s angular features are often played up in a very ‘strong’ way.
Not so great for French Vogue though – really eight years between solo black cover girls? Do better.
