W magazine

They’re gorgeous photos.

Not that we’re depending on mainstream magazines to validate or show love to natural hair and chocolate-complexioned models, but W magazine did a great job including an all-black model ensemble for a photo spread in its August 2015 edition. 

Six models—Ajak Deng, Amilna Estevao, Anais Mali, Aya Jones, Binx Walton and Tami Williams—appear in a variety of fashion spreads. Their clothes are rich and patterned, and they’re all rocking a natural hairstyle. Check out the photos below: 


Work it, ladies.
