The face of fashion is changing. Ideas about what is considered fashionable, chic and classic are opening up to include people of all races and it is about time. Case in point the latest ads for Ralph Lauren, the king of the preppy chic look feature Japanese model Tao Okamoto‘s pristine image as the signature face of the brand. Joining the ranks of beauties like Ubah Hassan and Valentina Zeliaeva, Tao looks pitch perfect and adds a bit of edge to the image of the Lauren girl.
