20 Times Black Women Were the Epitome of Glamour Goals


The concept of glamour is fraught with white supremacist baggage. Black women because of our skin, hair, noses, bodies, and culture are not always idealized in the notion. But we have and will always be glamourous. The styles we define are timeless. We set trends. We simply cannot be ignored.  Nichelle Gainer, author of Vintage Black Glamour, has for years done an excellent job of curating our fabulousness.
