French <em>Vogue</em> Cover Features Rose Cordero, First Solo Black Model Since 2002 (PHOTO)

French Vogue will feature a solo black model on its March 2010 cover for the first time since 2002, reports. Rose Cordero, 18, is from the Dominican Republic and was shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.


The last time French Vogue had a solo black model on its cover was in May 2002 when Liya Kebede posed for the cameras. The magazine caused a controversy by putting models in blackface last October.
