Fashion Week Trends: Models Rock Caesers

While following Fashion Week in NY, I noticed a trend with African and African American models…they are rocking Caesers! This also crossed over to some of the International Fashion Weeks as well like Paris and London. It seems to have taken over the runway for black models.

This probably isn’t something new…it’s just moreso new to me. When I see the Black supermodels like Chanel Iman, Iman, Tyra Banks, Beverly Johnson and Naomi Campbell– I always just saw long flowing hair (almost always extensions). Until Alek Wek became popular, she was the first with natural hair and a caeser to gain supermodel recognition in the mainstream world. (at least to my knowledge)

It’s interesting because alot of things that we as black women might be uncomfortable with, the majority love! I love a caeser on a female too. It really shows off a woman’s face. Check out the caesers on the runway:
