“Striking,” “exotic,” or “mixed race” are just as offensive as “weird” when used to describe why or how a woman is gorgeous despite having black features. Something akin to “she’s pretty for a black girl.”
I don’t perceive Lauras comment as offensive either. I think she just expressed herself in a “weird” way :). Maybe she meant unusual and I don’t see that as an offense. I sometimes get lost myself with all this pc-stuff seeing there are obviously very different looking people on this planet and I for myself feel silly to pretend otherwise. I mean the problem is not that people look different, black, white, small, big, asian, scandinavian, whatever, thats just the way it is and I personally feel that diversity is one of the greatest streaks of nature. So there should be no problem to state so. The problem is there because stating the differences has been and is still used all over the world to segregate and discriminate. So that means, if we like it or not, we need to be careful how to choose our words. In this way I agree with you. Still, I can feel no racist undertone here and also think we should go easy with each other.
All girls and shots are incredibly diverse and beautiful btw, thanks Scott!
Because she is pretty obviously wearing contacts. Still looks amazing. Maybe even makes me like it better. Matching your eyes to your sweater LIKE IN THE WIZARD OF OZ!!!!! I wish I could meet her.
Not necessarily. I have friends from Afghanistan with the most beautiful green eyes, and while I was studying abroad in Senegal you would be amazed by the amount of West Africans I met with blue eyes, and it was all natural.
Awesome job!!! All the pictures are stunning but I’m blown away by the young beauty in first picture. I’m certain tons of agencies have been reaching out to you, for her contact info. We’re looking at a major future cat walker there, get job Scott.
All the women are gorgeous! Especially the first girl. So boldly gorgeous.
Red lips are such a statement. I feel that liking red or wearing red has something to do with some kind of a strong streak of personality that’s in you.Maybe it’s about confidence.
I love the pictures. http://www.pulseonthego.blogspot.com
Red lips are so beautiful, even if sometimes I don’t feel comfortable with red lipstick, I don’t know why…
Every woman should have a great red lipstick in her beauty case. Now, I like matte lipstick, I think is really classy.
The girl in the blue sweater with the blue contacts is the winner here. But they are all lovely as can be. She makes me think of that old Wizard of OZ movie where Dorothy asks the Emerald City salon girls if they could dye her eyes to match her gown. Thats what she did here!!!!!!!!! OOH I have a girl crush!
Above in a video by the Beekeepers, producers from the UK. It would appear her eyes are real and not contacts….and I’ll go out on a limb by saying she’s probably just mixed race like quite a few people in London and the UK. In fact now it was just noted in the UK papers late in 2012, that white Britons are now in the minority in London for the first time. So you’ll most likely see more mixes like Pippa in the future.
And for those who like to argue, I am not assuming Pippa is mixed race because of her blue eyes because there are Melanesian blacks with blue eyes as well as black Americans who have far past mixed ancestry and dark skin but the occasional blue and green eyed child pops up. Those American blacks would consider themselves fully black as the mix would have been ages ago, but a person with such pale white skin would most likely be a recent mix and have a current black/white parent coupling.
Anyone needing any further .02 on mixed race kids, dont hestitate to call! :-)
I could look at that face for a long time. Unbelievable the traits in this girl. in regards to comments about fakeness, christ people are ridiculous. There was a time when people were born with amazing traits that no one ever questioned, before collagen, coloured contacts and other ridiculous procedures came into play. Today however when you are born with these traits they are constantly questioned. I’m mixed race, with olive skin, large green eyes and voluptuous lips (traits I was embarassed of as a child b ut began to love as i got older) and get pretty weary of people asking if I have availed any of these procedures. You can tell people when something is fake it’s always so obvious. And yet this girl’s unique beauty is so honest how can you not see that. perhaps blinded by your own jealousy… I don’t know.
This kind of blue is very similar to the famous nuance patented and used by Yves Klein for his works. If we think that Dior has been inspired recently by this same artist for the last campaign, we can say that this colour is still (fortunately) actual.
