While historically, most high fashion models have been Caucasian there are a handful of models of African decent that rocked the runway in Paris recently. We got to see Ajak Deng, Shena Moulton, Nyasha Matonhodze, Joan Smalls, Jourdan Dunn, and many others walking for big names like Louis Vuitton, Christian Dior, and Valentino. I could not resist but to posts the picture of Ajak in an Iris Van Herpen…dress? Whatever it is, it is surely a piece of art that have many talking and have a young African beauty in the spotlight.
