All Hail the Queen of Fashion! Muva Naomi Campbell just walked the Valentino Spring 2019 Couture show, and we are shook.
The runway legend closed the iconic show wearing an overly dramatic black, sheer gown with balloon sleeves and a tiered, ruffle skirt. Not only did Naomi storm the runway, but so did a plethora of other Black models.
Valentino’s creative director, Pierpaolo Piccioli, made it clear that he wanted his show to be more inclusive versus exclusive. In December, Pierpaolo told Vogue, “Valentino today has to be more inclusive. I want the couture to be relevant for today. Not for old times.” And the Spring 2019 show reflected just that.
There were 39 looks that came down the runway worn by Black models.
These stunning shades of brown beauty wore a range of beautiful, bold colors and dramatic silhouettes. Today was the last day of Haute Couture week in Paris, but we’re anxious to see what’s in store for the other fashion weeks to come. Because Valentino set the bar pretty high.
Take a look at all the Black queens hitting in the runway below:
