‘The Colour of Beauty’ is a short documentary by Elizabeth St. Philip that follows the life of model Renee Thompson. Frustrated but driven as ever, Thompson discusses how the face of the fashion industry is perceived to be changing, but becoming more ‘diverse’ is not what it seems. 

‘The Colour of Beauty’ reveals that there is plenty of discrimination going on beneath the surface. Captivating and controversial, the film raises public awareness as it exposes the industry’s façade to cover up the reality of its situation: ethnic women in fashion wear a ‘white mask.’
