Vogue Spain has a simple, yet profound, message for the world – Black is beautiful – and we couldn’t agree more.

The publication strayed into uncharted territory when it decided to feature Ivorian-British model Aya Jones in braids on the cover of its highly revered pages. An unusual move for such a mainstream magazine, Miss Aya’s shoot instantly started trending across the globe.

“What an honor to be apart of this special issue and to work with this incredible @voguespain team,” she wrote alongside her now-viral photo, which you can check out above.

It’s amazing to see Black culture being celebrated and appreciated in the fashion bible. How do you like Aya’s boxer braids cornrows?
