It's a sad fact that even though cultural appropriation is still alive and well in fashion, when it comes to actual diversity and inclusivity, the world of style is severely lacking.
From the models cast to walk in shows to the editorial masthead at your favorite magazines, people of color are still seriously underrepresented in fashion.
And Nicki Minaj isn't having it.
Minaj wisely used her platform to acknowledge the need for diversity in the industry.
As a celebrity facing hundreds of the biggest names in the industry, Minaj had a rare opportunity. She shared her perspective as a woman of color, and also celebrated a designer who is doing it right. With cultural appropriation STILL running rampant in fashion spreads and on the runway, it's time that the faces of fashion reflect the world.
