Brownness Babe of the week: Khoudia Diop (@melaniin.goddess)
Khoudia Diop is the 20-year-old Senegalese model with more than 400,000 followers that has taken the world by storm. She was discovered by The Colored Girl, a creative agency which highlights diversity by beautifully disrupting the status quo through art and fashion.
She has admitted to have struggled with her self-esteem, skin color and has been used to getting stares ever since she was young.
She has gone to model for Make Up Forever, Swimwear brand Trefle Designs, has walked the Michael Costello show for New York Fashion Week, and hear wrap brad The Wrap Life.
She has been featured on NBC, Cosmopolitan, Huffington Post, NPR and most recently part of Glamour’s spread on American Beauty.
There’s so much that has been said about the amount of confidence that Khoudia has, which makes us uncomfortable because why shouldn’t she be confident? She is beautiful, her skin is beautiful. The darker the skin, the closer to the ancestors.
