Let’s be honest; The faces of fashion are mostly white, tall, and thin. While there is absolutely nothing wrong with being any one of those things, it makes us wonder why the rest of our diverse population is not represented to the fullest. Black Girls Killing It is certainly a step in the right direction, in terms of showing another side of the fashion world that oftentimes (and unfortunately) gets shortchanged in the mainstream media. BGKI is mostly made up of submissions, street style photos, and editorial shots of black girls from all over the world. Another plus is that the range of body types represented on BGKI is vast, proving that you don’t have to be a size 0 to rock the latest trends, or to start your own trends.
