Kimye, Rihanna, and Beyonce Grammy Red-Carpet Looks Recreated By Kids

New York City-based photographer Tricia Messeroux of Toddlewood Studios has recreated celebrity red-carpet looks of  the 2015 Grammy celebration using kids. The result is, of course, adorable and also better than the original in some ways. We’ve selected our favorites: 1. Rihanna – As soon as we saw Rihanna in that flouncy oversized tutu from Giambattista, we thought she looked like a five-year-old playing dress-up. Looks like we were right. 2. Beyonce – This little girl’s red-carpet smile and presence seems a bit more natural and real than Beyonce’s robotic pose. 3. Kanye West and Kim Kardashian –  This kiddie

Italian Vogue Reprises 2008 ‘All-Black’ Issue With Black Barbie Tribute

black-barbie-vogue.jpg Italian Vogue's editor-in-chief Franca Sozzani made a bold statement when she featured only black models in the 2008 July issue, and follows it up with a feature on Black Barbies in the 2009 July supplementary issue celebrating the 50th anniversary of Barbie. "Barbie has been an icon for wole generations which is why I really wanted to give a strong sign in step with the times, and dedicate the anniversary issue to Black Barbie," Sozzani said. black-barbie-vogue-3.jpg Introduced in 1967, the first black doll from the Barbie collection was Francie, a friend to Barbie. The first Black Barbie wasn't introduced until 1980. This fall Barbie launches a line of black dolls called the So in Style collection with more ethnic or "black" facial features such as fuller lips, distnctive cheekbones, a wider nose and curlier hair. black-barbie-vogue-2.jpg The 2008 all-black Italian Vogue served as an example of the virtual exemption of black models in the beauty and fashion industry and the need for diversity. So what will Vogue's Black Barbie issue achieve? Perhaps, the elevation of black female aesthetics to Barbie's iconic status. Or at least young girls like Sasha and Malia will have some great dolls to play that will reinforce their self-image as beautiful black women. black-barbie-vogue-5.jpg
