Ready for the Runway: Chanel, Wendell, and Marcus

There has been a lot of talk of models of color in the industry of fashion, or lack thereof, lately.
We all know miss Beverly Johnson.
We had our Tyra, our Naomi and Veronica, and our Jessica White.
Tyson ruled the runway and Boris ruled the print.
Lord knows I had a small obsession with Will Lemay and Sean Gordon.
Here are my favorite among the new crop. The catwalk ain't ready!!

Wendell Lissimore
Wendell Lissimore of Harlem is one of the most sought after models on the planet, male or female. Discovered at the gym, his career has skyrocketed drawing comparisons to Tyson Beckford. Seen everywhere from Urban Outfitters Campaigns to Dior runways, Wendell's versatile yet exotic look has earned him a place as one of the most bankable models alive.

Enjoy the video. I tried to watch but I lost consciousness at around 4:23. LOL

Marcus Lloyd
Marcus Lloyd of New York City is originally from Garland, Texas. A favorite of designer/mogul Sean "Diddy" Combs, Lloyd has exploded onto the scene as one of the newest fresh faces and warm personalities of male modeling.

Peep him in the video below. Watch at 0:13 as he tries not to laugh. Funny! :-)

Chanel Iman

Chanel Iman Robinson (born 1989) is a Korean/African-American model from Atlanta, USA. She grew up in Culver City, California and attended Fairfax High School in Los Angeles. Chanel appeared with models Du Juan and Coco Rocha in the Spring 2007 issue of TIME Style&Design. In the May 2007 issue of US Vogue she was featured on the cover with others as one of the stars emerging in the new crop of supermodels. With a name like Chanel Iman, did they really think she would become a lawyer?? Nope. This chick was probably born at Bryant Park.

Watch Chanel below in the video. I love her. She's so refreshing. I love her nonchalant personality as if she doesn't know she 's the hottest of the hot. She knows. There's proof at 0:26-0:27. Also, check her working that Naomi part down the middle look at 4:03.


World Dominion is coming for these three.

Wendell for President in 2012. Chanel as First Lady and Marcus as Vice President!
