Model Adut Akech Bior radiates elegance in new editorial for Ryan Storer Jewelry by photographer Jay Exposito

October 28, 2016

Adut Akech Bior is drop dead gorgeous as the face of Ryan Storer Jewelry. We’ve all seen editorials where melanin isn’t appreciated or presented as beautifully as it could be, but Jay Exposito doesn’t disappoint in his use of lighting and angle with the stunning Adut. It’s a remarkable time in fashion–there’s so much conversation around representation that we don’t always think about the simplicity of Black women’s flawlessness without a political lens. I encourage you to take a breath and a break from the movement to simply revel in Adut’s emanating radiance. Her authentic, unrelenting beauty is a revolution in and of itself.
