Readers were in for a surprise in the September issue of W Magazine. Three generations of style: Iman, Naomi and Rihanna (who graces the cover) are featured together in an iconic fashion editorial for Balmain titled, “Phresh Out the Runway.”  The editorial is a welcome sight especially considering the fact that women of color are rarely represented in fashion. Ironically, Iman and Naomi Campbell spoke out about a year ago along with model-turned-advocate Bethann Hardison demanding more diversity on the runway.
