So Gucci finally added some "color" to their campaign. We're glad to see it.

Styled by Avena Gallagher, Lopez does what she does best, reminding us why she just won the Model of the Year title at the African Fashion Awards.

Alek Wek is all smiles for the August cover shoot of Dutch Glamour. Captured by Marc de Groot, the Sudanese model looks absolutely radiant in multi-colored eye makeup by Irena Ruben and metallic garments styled by Dimphy den Otter.

Chanel evokes the spirit of the late Florence Ballard (founding member of The Supremes) while donning modern day garments from the likes of Miu Miu and Viktor & Rolf.

Meet Arlenis Sosa. She is also the youngest model of color ever to be awarded such a contract.

We've been keeping our eye on actor Mehcad Brooks ever since he graced our television screens as Jerome on "The Game." He's gained even more popularity while playing Eggs Benedict on HBO's hit series "True Blood," and you may have just seen him starring alongside Queen Latifah and Common in "Just Wright."

Gucci‘s pre-fall campaign continues in the same vein of luxury as the label’s previous advertisements with these glamorous images featuring Raquel Zimmermann and breakout star Joan Smalls who is also rumored to appear in Givenchy’s fall campaign.

We’re still giving props to VOGUE Italia for continuing to feature a bevy of black models within their pages. Now, VOGUE Russia has jumped on board as well.

One of the reasons I hate working out is because gym gear has become so boring - shapeless, lifeless, dull, and completely unsexy. But model Reina Montero shows us that a simple pop of color can change all that.

Our favorite "plus size" contestant from "America's Next Top Model" Toccara Jones is now modeling for the UK's Evans Summer 2010 collection.

After VOGUE Italia launched a website for curvy women, we've been keeping our eye out and giving them credit when due. They've done it again with this vintage swimsuit pictorial.
