Pat Cleveland

Black models in the early 70s were hard to find in the pages of Vogue. The fashionable faces of the time were big-eyed faerie-like girls. Pat Cleveland arrived in Paris, famous for its love of diverse women, and made a name for herself. On the catwalk she was an entranced Egyptian Goddess. Resorting to white face to make herself more appealing. Her happy and go lucky attitude was a breath of fresh air! Self-portrait was edited for acne scars.

I was very much inspired by this image of Pat, whicb is not of her disco ear, but right before, and I turned it disco!
