Teen Vogue’s August Issue Features Not 1, Not 2, But 3 Models of Color

Yes, you read that right. Teen Vogue’s August 2015 issue features three head turning models giving a visual definition for #MelaninOnFleek.

Crowned as “Fashion’s New Faces”,  these queens Imaan Hammam, 18, Lineisy Montero, 19, and  Aya Jones, 20,are the talk of the town for all the right reason.  Elaine Welteroth, Teen Vogue’s health and beauty director, penned the cover story and offers a great segue into a discussion on race within the fashion industry on and off the runways.

In the first few sentences of the article Welteroth explains”…when your focus is three models who are building their careers on defying standards, anything goes,” and with that alone, you’re certainly in for a heartwarming story about determination, hard work, and three young ladies who are simply learning as they go.

Be sure to pick up your copy when it hits stands July 14.
