Devyn 'The Face' Model Says She Doesn't Consider Herself A 'Black Girl Model'...........
The awkward exchange happened between the 21-year-old, brown-skinned beauty and media maven Wendy Williams, who made a cameo as guest judge during an episode Tuesday night. Wendy's attempt to understand Devyn's experience being a black girl in fashion resulted in the following:
Wendy: Is it hard to be a black girl model?
Devyn: I don't really consider myself as a black girl model. I know what my ethnicity is, but I'm fair-skinned and I feel like I have an international look.
Wendy: So you don't feel black?
Devyn: No, that's not what I said, whatsoever.
Naomi Campbell (chimes in off to the side): What the f*ck does she mean? That's a disgrace! She's a black girl.
Fair-skinned on not, the second Devyn walks into a model casting (or anywhere else for that matter) she's a black girl and no one will want to entertain her "international look" pitch. She's got way more melanin than the white girls who are getting booked and that's that.
