They’re gorgeous photos.

Not that we’re depending on mainstream magazines to validate or show love to natural hair and chocolate-complexioned models, but W Magazine did a great job including an all-black model ensemble for a photo spread in its August 2015 edition.

Six models—Ajak Deng, Amilna Estevao, Anais Mali, Aya Jones, Binx Walton and Tami Williams—appear in a variety of fashion spreads. Their clothes are rich and patterned, and they’re all rocking a natural hairstyle. Apparently, black is the new black. Check out the photos below:

  1. Started rocking my natural hair about a year ago. Before that it wasn’t very mainstream so I’m glad that people are getting used to the sight of Black Au Naturel. Everyone needs to get used to it. Black people, especially. We need to get back to “Black is beautiful.”

    OMG, this decade is becoming a total revival of the sixties, right down to the virulent racism.

  2. Black women are soo Beautiful, thank God for the comeback of the Natural look… I was so tired of seeing our sisters trying to assimilate… let them ASSIMILATE THIS!!
