Lessons In Colour - Lupita Nyongo Inspired Photo Shoot and Magazine Spread

In January 50 Shades of Black reported how Lupita Nyong'o dazzled in Dazed and Confused Magazine spread.  Inspired by that shoot, 50 Shades of Black featured artist and photographer of our BEAUTIFUL IN EVERY SHADE Open Photo Shoot on the campus of Emory University, Breonca Trofort, shot this amazing spread published by Afro Style Magazine.

On her Blog Trofort reflects:

Playing off of [Lupita's] editorial, I wanted to do a male fashion shoot focusing on the contrast of the elements of color, found in the make up, wardrobe, background, and prop choice. Yesterday, I had the opportunity to execute this concept “Lessons in Colour” with a collaborative effort from an amazing team consisting of African Model Kwabena Agyemang, MUA Danielle M, and Wardrobe Stylist Dallas.
