Quotable: Rihanna Says, “I’m A Black Girl On A Fashion Spread”

“I respect designers who aren’t afraid to go outside the box. I went to a Jean Paul Gaultier show, and I saw girls who are thicker than me, beautiful and voluptuous and different ethnicities. That made me so excited. I thought, ‘Okay, I can work that, for sure.’ It’s clear there are definitely fewer black women in the high-fashion industry. One of the things I respected most about Gucci was that they did a print campaign with me [in 2008]. I’m a black girl on a fashion spread for Gucci — that was a big deal.”

Rihanna talks to Elle about diversity in high fashion. But what we really want to know is how does she feel about obvious Photoshopping? [E! Online]
