The cover of Vogue Paris for this March will feature a model of color for the first time since May 2002 when model Liya Kebede graced its cover. The new covergirl is an 18 year old model from the Dominican Republic named Rose Cordero, and her spread was shot by renown photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. This is a very groundbreaking move by editrix Carine Roitfeld, who caused controversy in last year's October issue when she featured model Lara Stone in blackface. We are happy to see this positive change towards featuring models of color, and hope that this trend continues!
