Remember Wendell, Henry and Ibrahim from Model City? Of course you do. Well the boys surfaced in the Summer 2010 issue of Paper Magazine paying homage to the dancers of SOUL TRAIN. Complete with afro wigs, Stevie Wonder (circa “Hotter than July“) beaded corn-rows, platforms and bell-bottoms; the shoot was the ultimate dance party. Check out this behind-the-scenes vid. Oh and look out for Wendell’s supermodel girlfriend Sessilee. Definitely soul approved!

Diversity in the working industry is far from being realized, although some believe it’s improving day-by-day. In the fashion world specifically, this statement reads extremely distant from the truth. Even with breakthroughs such as Vogue Italia’s so-called ‘All Black’ issue, magazines, designers, and casting agents have yet to prove an aesthetic for Black or Latin in their final products. Centric TV offered a glimpse into this world through the eyes of six male models on the reality show, “Model City.” Wendell, Ibrahim, Nelson, Henry, Salieu and Zeric offer you the opportunity to watch their highs and lows in the system. With less job availabilities than others, amongst more competition, draining schedules, grueling rejections, and constant struggles with insecurities, this show is a must-see!
