The colored Girl campaign is an editorial by Tori Elizabeth and Victory Jones and I must black is indeed beautiful. Every model is dressed in neutrals, browns and nudes, a symbolic way to express comfort, rawness and vulnerability.

The primary focus is to highlight the beauty and features of the brown color wheel. The campaign works to empower and unite women of color based on their unique physical attributes.

“The sole purpose is to unite, embrace and empower women all over the world, all shades of brown and all of their gorgeous features.”

Each model was handpicked by Tori and Victory with the intention of accentuating different unique features of each and highlighting all shades of beauty and #BlackGirlMagic

There are moments where I feel everyone loves us and wants to be us and have our features. But then there are the moments when I feel it’s not okay for us to have it but it’s okay for the masses to have it.  So as a brown girl I feel sometimes it’s not okay to be who you are.  Whether it’s in media or social media.  I’m from the south, where being a brown girl isn’t something that people necessarily worship or praise.  I want the next generation (and our generation) to look at this campaign and feel like it’s okay to be a brown girl, outside of media.  In real life.” says Tori

Let’s continue to ignite that powerful Black Girl Magic spark!

Brown girls represent, "Power and magic and it's so untapped. It needs to be celebrated. We are the original woman. People are afraid of that power because we are the seed of life. I love black women and I want us to love ourselves." -Victory Jones

“Being black is an opportunity that I’m taking advantage of. I have this uniqueness to me that I’m exploring and doors are opening. Right now being black is cool again. When I was younger, I was picked on a lot and now I’m embracing my color. I’m letting young girls know it’s okay to be black. As long as you love yourself that’s all that matters.” -Christina Abiola
