Vogue India Takes a Stand Against Color Discrimination

Vogue India is taking a stand against color discrimination within its country with a cover solely dedicated to darker-skinned models. "Skin color matters a lot for women in India," said Nirupama Singh, an expert on the sociology of fashion. "Fairness is a very valuable thing here, looked on as desirable. The fashion world can be a big agent for change in this area."

Titled The Dawn Of Dusk, the cover features five darker-skinned models — including Gia Johnson Singh — hoping to change the country, which currently touts light-skinned stars and models. We think this is a great way to address color prejudice. Hopefully, this will help change India's outlook on beauty and stop kids from buying skin-whitening products.
