Another disappointment...

As i have stated previously stated, i am constantly disappointed in the fashion industries lack of diversity. Fashion shows, magazines and TV shows show a lack of acknowledgement for multicultural talent. With trends like "black face" and Vanity Fair's Caucasian dominated cover, i feel that i must address what i find to be a "situation". Vanity Fair's Young Hollywood Issue features Abbie Cornish, Rebecca Hall, Anna Kendrick, Kristen Steward, Carey Mulligan, Amanda Seyfried, Emma Stone, Mia Wasikowska and Evan Rachel Wood. Now, don't get me wrong, they are all talented young woman who deserve the attention that they receive. However, both Kristen Stewart and Amanda Seyfried made the list last year, and Evan Rachel Wood has been famous ever since before her Thirteen days. Here are some of my picks for who SHOULD have been featured:

Freida Pinto - First off, shes drop dead gorgeous. She's dating Dev Patel, making one of Hollywood and Bollywood's hottest couples. She's Indian and an amazing representation of a classy, Indian woman. And shes basically infamous for her role as Latika in Slumdog Millionaire.

- Selena is 18 years old and has a hundred times more class than young Miley Cyrus. She is known throughout the media for being a class act thespian.Plus, she is a virgin. Whats hotter than that right now?

Gabourey Sidibe - Shes young, has amazing acting talent and is not afraid to be herself. Plus, she had everyone talking about her wonderful performance in Precious. I would love to see a talented, plus sized, African American actress on the cover of any magazine!

Charlyne Yi- Charlyne was not only a great actress in Paper Heart (was she acting or was that her?)and she even wrote the darn thing! Plus, she's Asians! And i heart Asians!

Keke Palmer- Besides being runway model beautiful, Keke is a talented actress on projects like True Jackson VP, Jump In and Akeelah and the Bee. Shes also a pretty good singer, Keke has her second album out titled "So Uncool".
