The Colored Girl Inc is a New York based creative/modelling outlet run by two innovative women, Tori Elizabeth and Victory Jones, the geniuses who discovered Senegalese modelling sensation, Khoudia Diop, the Melaniin Goddess.
Recently celebrating their one year anniversary, they threw the party of all parties that showed the beauty and style of our sisters across the pond.
The Coloured Girl Inc, originally started as a project to reclaim beauty for the Black woman, an idea Tori and Victory came up with in their freshman year of college. Speaking to Essence Magazine last year, Tori, said: “I started the ‘The Colored Girl’ Project because I wanted to show the different aspects of beauty as it pertains to Black women. I wanted to highlight and celebrate our unique beauty: our eyes, our lips, our cheekbones. In choosing the models, I was looking for one girl in every shade of brown; I found 10 models on social media. I wanted women from different social and cultural backgrounds. I wanted women with angular eyes, women with freckles and fair skin and women with really rich, ebony skin. It’s so important to be proud of who we are and showcase the beauty of Blackness.” The resulting self-love campaign was a visual feast
celebrating the beauty and diversity of black women.
They have certainly brought their philosophy with them, looking at the beautiful queens in all the photographs. We look forward to seeing what comes next from this duo.
