Tia Adeola’s “Black Is Beautiful” Film Is a Must-Watch
Teen Vogue Generation Next alum Tia Adeola shared a slice of Renaissance fantasy in her debut fashion film Black is Beautiful (or, Le Noir Est Beau in French.)
Unveiled on Tuesday, December 15, the short film is inspired by Sofia Coppola’s 2006 movie Marie Antoinette and is the most luxurious spin on squad goals you’ll see this year. Featuring an all-Black female cast including stars like 20-year-old rapper Flo Milli and rising R&B singer Paloma Ford, Tia’s first fashion film is an indulgent celebration of Black women and Black culture.
Tia’s inclusive and empowering vision of femininity is what landed her in Teen Vogue’s 21 Under 21 class of 2018. Since then, stars like SZA, Gigi Hadid, and Kali Uchis have worn her designs. This February, she made her New York Fashion Week debut, and now, she’s inviting us into her world of Black excellence through a visual to compliment her Spring/Summer 2021 collection.
Directed by Nina Meredith, the two-minute film is an ethereal performance. Models wear their hair in theatrical braided styles and wear gowns hand-embroidered with pearls and faux feathers. The collection features pastel silk evening dresses and extravagant robes in Tia’s signature sheer and ruffled fabric. The film is both “social commentary and fantastical escapism,” according to a press release.
The Nigerian designer shared her gratitude on Instagram, writing, “Thank you to all the incredible people that made this dream come true for me. I am forever grateful.”
Tia’s eye for classical elegance is both modern, confident, and refreshing. Watch Tia Adeola’s “Black Is Beautiful” film in full below:
