Kanye West’s models: A fuller spectrum of ‘black beauty’
NEW YORK — Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 3 show on Thursday had all the twists and turns of a perfect stage show. There was the superb music blasting from his upcoming seventh album, The Life of Pablo, the production was outer worldly, and the clothes, including West’s infamous Yeezy Boosts, are sure to become bestsellers.
But what was the most intriguing aspect from the New York City show was West’s cast of models. Most on two of the stages were of color, and the entire bottom floor (made up of street-casted, non-professional models) were black.
