The Glow Up Gaze: Seynabou Cissé Is the Real-Talking ‘Real Woman’ We’ve Been Waiting For

@Se via Twitter

Model Seynabou Cissé—Seyna, for short—quietly rocked our worlds when she visited our offices in her signature unapologetic, pared-down, woman-conquers-menswear style. We fell in love at first sight with the 23-year old Senegalese JAG Model and her tailored separates, naturally chic cadence and glowing—SO GLOWING—skin.

But mostly, we fell for her straight-talking style—is there anything more appealing than a woman fully aware of herself? In a brief chat with The Glow Up, she addressed unattainable beauty standards, the current limits of the fashion industry, and the exoticism that both promotes and plagues beauties like herself. She is the change we’d like to see in fashion, and we can only hope that the fashion world is taking notice!
