Sighs....I tell ya, Black women be happy she didn't pick us to wear that gawdy Baby Phat 2.0 shit. I remember a poster coming after me last time when I said that Jews run the industry and therefore artist should be weary of what they do, they came back at me and said well they wouldn't be in control if more Blacks was....in that long ass rant I say that to say this...when we do get "in charge" we can't eve HIRE our OWN hahaha no wonder we don't get taken serious and give our money to the Asians and I will continue to do so cause it all one in the same.

Support Black business and yet they can't even feature us as models....yawn's bought to head to the beauty hair store and pick up a milky quick weave for $19.99, some $1 lip gloss and a razor comb for my eyebrows.

Well it's her company and they do look like her - even the blonde one.

I don't know much about marketing could be what was requested for a startup company with many other things, or it could be a personal preference, or could be we all know she is not 100% black so she can getaway with it.

I like Draya, rep and all. I think she's a real cool chick. She does have black girls, latinas, mixed girls involved. Not only that, she lives in LA so that look is typical.

and I do believe that is a black chick front and center soooo....

Model. Used as loosly as thick.

I don't know why anyone would complain, I would perfer not see 'us' in her bullshit

Dark women need to have a strong work ethic and stay in their books.Light skin just need to keep their Hair straigthen,cut the ebonics to a minimal
And be cute.

Okay now keeping things in perspective, Draya IS half BLACK. I don't think she hates dark women (or black women) because she did her BEST to befriend those darker, black women on Basketball wives. But look at how they treated her...horribly. She did NOTHING wrong. Meanwhile you had the Govan sister who not only f**ed Shaq but had twins from him behind Shaunie's back. Draya is a sweet girl and I know this because when she was in Dade last year in April I met her. I truly don't believe she's dissing BW women but if she is it's only because of how they've dissed her. (Let the e-bullies begin)

Nicole Sent from my iPad said...

LMFAO! AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Let me guess, the Black women on RWS hate Draya now?

I Do Declare said...

Draya is GORGEOUS by the way and that golden brown hair fits her to a T. If you all pay attention, you'll also see that there are three (they look fully black I'm not sure) women in that pic. They're just light skinned...::shrugs:: Oh well. It's her line and her decision so whatever. E-bullies I'm ready lol

It is her choice, but her response to the valid criticism is uncalled for. This chick will be gone & forgotten soon.

Anonymous said...

I don't see what the problem is? They all look like her so what's the big deal? I think it is fine, if it was someone dark skin on the other hand and she hired all lightskin models, than I would have a problem with it because how you gonna be dark skin and not hire any models the same color as you... I'm just sayin.

All them bitches ugly....all of them...every single light skin, hispanic and white one up top are all ugly as hell.

Let's see, what type of chicks will wear Fine Ass Girl: dark skinned ratchet hoes, light skinned ratchet hoes, white ratchet hoes, mixed ratchet hoes, latina ratchet hoes, lol. It really doesn't matter who she chooses to rep her brand, ratchet hoes of all complexions will wear it!!!!

REally in the 21st Century and you dont know a dark skin woman with a degree. Well I know several including me. So hate continues on this blog, Its like driving a Benz to a homeless lady with a shopping cart. No comparison and out of her lane. The author of this post must be a skinhead or a KKK. Its too funny how hate spills from your head to the keyboards. I pay you are childless, really I do. You probaly is dark skin and bleach your skin each night Like several people. Not me I love my heritage and dark skin. Please note this website was reported online for racism.

Please dont argue RWS has been reported for Racism and hate remarks said...

Snitch,

Can you please ban this bitch who keeps talking about reporting your blog? Don't you find it funny that a person who thinks this blog is "racist" and "hateful" KEEPS coming back to it? This bitch is single-handedly trying to destroy your blog because she want freedom of speech and expression to be censored...AND she posts the same shit on every post.

Ah this is easy if you don't like it dont eat it I don't buy from so-called celeb clothing lines so I'm good!

Reesepiece said...

Who cares. I'd rather wear cross colors or garanimals than her clothing line.

Anonymous said...

yes they are @1:00 yes they are.And draya has the face of a bird and a fake weird looking body.plus she is apart of the hip hop "community" and advertises to that type.

black women need to stop complaining all the time and count their blessings.

these are all women that black men actually want so many of these women are being geared towards black men with the kind of clothing she'll have them wearing.It will likely be the Amber Rose look.Which means less black men black women have to deal with.

Be thankful and head for the door y'all.Those women are little blessings in disguise.

Thank you! I know my eyes were not playing tricks on me. I agree with the poster that said the women look like Draya. If it was a dark skinned black woman that had done this, it would be totally different. Though it would have been nice to an array of colors. Dark skinned black women have beautiful skin. Americans sure are obsessed with skin color. Black is black. Doesn't matter if it's mahogany or caramel. We're still black at the end of the day.

@1259PM. THANK YOU! Some Of Us Liked This Site The Way It Was. Snitch Needs To Ban Nicole. Her Comments Are TOO MUCH. I Like This Site, But It's Not The Same. We Should Be Able To Come And Discuss The Post Without It Turning Into A 'Black Woman Bash' From Jealous Trolls. Thank You! I Will Copy And Paste The COmments As Well. No Shade To Snitch, But Enough Is Enough Of These Ignorant Comments. said...

Draya honestly looks like a parakeet. Her clothing line will fail, as most celebrity lines do.

Anonymous said...

Me personally, I beleive that when you have a clothing line, it should represent the mix of people that will be wearing it. Black models come in all shapes, sizes and shades. If a designer wants their line to be successful then they will choose various shapes/size/shades to represent the line. That is what I liked about Nicci Gilberts line; she wasn't looking for a size 6, 5'9 light skin female. She was looking for the 5'5 210 lb female as well as the 5'7 150lb female. This is just my opinion.

We all know that you're co-signing your own comments. No one is forcing you to visit this blog. If you hate it, why keep returning? You're pathetic and I hope someone checks you into a mental hospital.

Draya has never been pretty to me. She looks funny in the face. Who cares what she does. I won't buy the clothes anyway. Whoever said this look is typical in L.A. is a liar and probably doesn't live here. L.A. is mostly Black And Hispanic people. You will rarely see a white face (until you're in Hollywood, Santa Monica, The Valley, etc). The Black And Hispanic men like all women out here. Chocolate to Cream. It's nothing like they portray on TV.

The models look very tranny like. Fine Ass Girl (FAG) clothing line O_o

Aye, if Kandi can sell dildos..

Obviously, this bird is announcing who her target audience is by who she has modeling that fuckwear. So be it. I'm sure she'll make a little change for a minute, but real sistas and real women in general should NEVER be insulted by what whores (even the successful whores) do. Keep it movin..

@BeeGee, ^THIS^ is one of the best things you've said in a lil while. Loves it!!!

Bellatina ✿☮♥★ said...

This is Draya's line though. If she wants light-brights as her models, so be it. To those of you complaining, where's your clothing line? And how is Draya a "whore"? Does someone in here have 24/7 to her vagina and all of her intimate encounters? A lot of the shit being talked here is fueled by hate and jealousy.

Anonymous said...

Hold up! Her clothing line is called "FAG". And the subject of this post is who's modeling her "FAG" line???

I won't be buying her isht. It looks cheap and tacky like the person that designed it.

Her line should be called SAW (Sluts and Whore's) seeing as that's her core audience, and who will be buying her tacky isht.

Anonymous said...

To be honest, these are probably the only women who even auditioned. Chocolate and caramel women are waking up and don't want to be affiliated with a whore, urban modeling or the raunchy urban entertainment. At first, chocolate and caramel were taking over (Melyssa, Esther, Buffie, Joi, Tae, a whole lot more). You don't see that as much because we don't want to be affiliated with that. I AM NOT STARTING A COLOR DEBATE, (IF YOU REPLY WITH IGNORANCE I WILL NOT RESPOND) but in the industry light skinned women are considered the easiest to have sex with, run trains on, turn out, etc. Anyone who has an industry connect knows what I'm saying is true. That's how THEY see it. My friend told me that the light skin (we consider light skinned to be like Draya's complexion) will go the extra mile for attention at Basketball games, parties, etc. He also said the execs tell the rappers to rap about redbone and white women. They do it because it's a paycheck. They also get paired with redbone in photo ops, and fake relationships. This is all part of an agenda. I'm sure you all know. Just a little inside scoop.

But I wasn't being jealous when I said she had a bird face and weird body.

And tho I wouldn't call her whore she is ran through but so are the men she's been with so..

2:01, We can sit up and call Melyssa, Esther, Buffy, etc. "whores" too. And you ARE starting a color debate by insinuating that light-skin women are nothing more than easy, loose women. I've seen thirsty women come in ALL shade, colors, tones and hues. To single out light-skin women just illustrates you probably have a personal problem with lighter women.

2:12, Aren't you tired and worn out from paTROLLing RWS so much? I read the post in all of its entirety and my guess is that you're probably dark or have an inferiority complex towards lighter women. Just my assumptions. If they're false, surely you won't respond in such an animated and asinine manner? Oh ok. Proceed.

Actually she has quite a few dark women friends who model her line,so somebody is just trying to start shit.I think Draya is doing good for herself she .She is making the most out of her 15 mins , she is out there hustling her ass off to make her line and brand a sucess. I cannot hate on that. Shit she doing better than have the broads on the show. If she was just sitting on her ass waiting for some dude to take care of her or still stripping people would be talking shit about that.Hustle hard lil mama.

I Do Declare said...

I think it's funny that people think Nicole and I are the same person when on this post (and several others) we have TOTALLY different viewpoints on the subject at hand....Read her comment at at the 1:32 mark and then look at my other two comments that came before and after hers..there's no way...We've also had it out on one post, I can't remember which one but she (Nicole) was giving me word for word and our comments were at least a minute away from each other- think. Who the HELL do you know can type that fast? You people need to wake up and realize that it IS possible that two very different individuals have the same opinion SOME of the time. I am not her. She says she lives in Cali, I have said several times in different posts that I reside in Dade. Pay attention.

And thank you Bellatina @1:53. Those are my thoughts exactly.

anyone who is dumb enough to purchase this trashy expensive version of forever 21 clothing doesnt matter to society anyway. i could care less about the color of her "models" because her clothing line is trash and will never be mainstream

Go Draya! Take a stand girl. This whole complexion thing is out of control. I hate to say it but I'm sick of so-called dark butts tryna force this love for darker skin tones down everyone's throats. Variety is the spice of life and maybe Draya's got a taste for a lighter seasoning right now.

@1:32PM are you kidding me??? Comparing Nicci Gilbert's models for her line of choir robes to Draya's models, is like comparing Nicci Gilbert to Draya! Stop it. There are NO similarities.

Oh, here we go with this isht again. Just because she commented on what SHE WAS TOLD (I'm not saying it's true) she has to have a complex or insecurities?

You're probably light and walk around like your shit doesn't stink... thereby eliciting negative responses from real individuals... thereby allowing you to pretend dark people are jealous and projecting your own complexes on others.

I am SO done.

@4:57PM, I tried to but YOU didn't leave me any room! Your comment to me was totally uncalled for. Comments like yours take the fun out of this gossip blog. You're obviously an angry, bitter, Blue-Black female. You're pissed because although ALL women are beautiful, the light skin, curly haired pretty boys called you Tar Baby and Hershey Bar and skipped over your sad, Blue-Black self to get to girls like Draya in high school and you're still holding a grudge. Knock it off. Draya shouldn't have to hire dark skin models just to make you feel good about your own Black skin. Take a look in the mirror and leave me the Hell out of your mess. Come for me without just provocation and I will respond.

flat butts,
small breast,
natural hair
(even though it's not unattractive in every case)
is going to be having a nose, you ain't a dime if you have a nose. The Micheal Jackson nose isn't even going to be good enough, that's going to be called too big. Boy, that wanna-be a dime life is so ridiculous.

It's such an insult to those of us who actually went to college and earned the BFA in fashion design to see peeps who have no knowledge, clue or skills put out clothing lines for the hell of it just to capitalize on their fame.

I haven't see her line but I'm sure it looks like the Ho-wear Draya currently wears while triasping around tinsel town selling her wares.
