BuzzFeed delved into the issue of certain designers having runways filled with only white models, by talking to five known casting directors in the industry. Raf Simon’s who heads Christian Dior was the main culprit having virtually colorless shows, since taking over in April 2012.
To his defense, the designer is not the actual person to cast the shows, but he does have sway on the women chosen. Allegedly Maida Gregori Boina and Rami Fernandes – who also do Calvin Klein and Jil Sander’s stark white shows—are the ones who work with Dior.
“I feel we’ve made strides in the past three to four years, thanks to people like [former model] Bethann Hardison, but this season in particular was one of the worst seasons in terms of diversity,” said James Scully, the casting director for Tom Ford, Jason Wu, Derek Lam, Stella McCartney, Lanvin and Carolina Herrera.

Shauna Neely is the founder of Shauna Neely Jewelry, an accessories line that caters to everyday fashionistas and a growing list of celebrity clientele that include Chris and Adrienne Bosh, the Williams sisters, Alicia Keys, Beyonce and more. A proud owner of one of Neely’s pieces once called her an “alchemist” because of her ability to mold raw material into works of art.
When she’s not designing her one-of-a-kind jewelry, Shauna can be found running across town to a meeting, brokering new partnership deals in New York’s diamond district, dining with friends and/or doting on her lovely daughter.
And with such a hectic schedule, it’s no surprise that Shauna likes to keep her beauty and fashion routine simple and chic with a steady rotation of staple items and products that will never go out of style.
Here, Shauna Neely lists her top five summer essentials:
This has been a big week for fashion thanks to all the events going on for Hollywood’s A-listers. And some of our favorites didn’t disappoint as they had jaws dropping and flashbulbs on fire as they hit the scene. Now was it a good jaw drop or a bad one? Let’s look through the following photographs and find out.
This woman is 46 years old? WOW! The stunning singer hit up the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala at Cap d’Antibes in this flowing Emilio Pucci gown. The halter dress also had a deep v-neck which definitely showcased Jackson’s girls, and a slit that went up her lower thigh to show off those gams. The train was long, as were her locks, and on her feet were futuristic Giuseppe Zanotti wedges that didn’t have a heel. While I’m not feeling her makeup, otherwise, Ms. Jackson looks pretty freaking awesome. Steal! Just let me get in the gym real quick first…
It’s no secret that I absolutely love fashion and fragrances. Honestly, what’s better than looking and smelling good? That’s why I decided to marry the two and compile a list of some of my favorite designers who not only create fabulous frocks but fragrances too.
Here are just a few of my two scents…
Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and it’s time to update your fragrance wardrobe. By now, most people have developed a signature scent, but its allure may have diminished because a significant other or friends have gotten used to it. And since smell is the strongest tie to memory, why not create brand new ones with a new brand of perfume this V-Day? We’ve searched high and low to bring you several fragrances that will spice up, freshen up, or sweeten things up a bit.
Purchase a bottle for yourself or “hint” to your lover which perfume is your heart’s desire: “Honey, I’d love that bottle of perfume on page __ of this Madame Noire article!” Let’s face it, there’s no time for subtly. Just remember that a great fragrance – like a great outfit – is an investment and subjective. If possible, visit the store to get a whiff of these scents in person. Even try a sample for a day because the scent can change as it wears. Still, we’ve included the complete notes of each perfume to make it easier for those who know what scents they like and are willing to purchase online.
With all that said, browse our picks and find the one that speaks to your heart…
