    @Olivia

    Oh? Fascinating. I wonder if you feel the same way about the other hundreds of regular white kids who get into the modeling game. I think Henry has incredible potential but even if he were average, I’d still be all for him to get into modeling to bring more people of color into the fashion industry. And I don’t want to go into your patronizing comment about him being just a “regular black kid wearing English clothes”; you’d do well to recognize he’s Black British and would you expect him to wear anything else other than the clothes made in his own country or which might typically represent English fashion?

  • Andy

    He is so adorable. He has what it takes to be a top male model.

  • RCVW

    handsome fellow…like the streetwear brand transition to couture thing he has going on.

  • NEX

    mmm, not so modelic.

  • lali

    wow @ olivia are you really serious? this guy is beautiful and very unique looking. His skin is clear and nearly perfect. He’s definitely not just some black kid as you put it. I’m just seriously shocked. As many white models who look nearly identical that get posted here, the one time I see a comment like this is with a black model? I mean I wish you knew how you sounded right now.

  • michelle_micha_lynn

    Olivia = Idiot.

  • COOL BOY!

  • jake

    Typical commenters giving the kid special treatment because he’s black. Olivia has the right to write what she did, not that I agree.
    Wonder if y’all would react the same if she wrote the same about an asian or a white kid?

    Are y’all racist?

  • A.D

    I could look at the 10th photo for at least another hour…yum.

  • ANDREW

    @Jake

    “Olivia has the right to write what she did.”

    Well, obviously. But I also have the right to post what I did and so does Lali. If it’s racist to point out the tone in someone else’s comment is patronizing and insulting, then I really question if you even took into consideration what she’s saying. And yes, I would react the same way to an identical comment if it were directed at an Asian model being that they’re people of color as well…

    Another day, another privileged comment on models.com.

  • Jessica

    I completely agree with Olivia nothing special whatsoever.

  • tammy

    @jake
    not to be rude, jake, but i don’t think you should forget your special treatment for being white.

    that said, i really am only in love with the kids cheekbones.

  • ANDREW

    Henry is so Fierce!! Such a classical face.
    What this space this kid is gonna sky rocket!! Hello STAR!

  • @Jake- you are so rigth, just disregard these racist people with their prejudice comments. No what bro, there’s a black male model who is MODEL OF THE WEEK. The people who are commenting on this photo hardly know anything about diverstiy nor true beauty!
    He’s here and he’s here to stay and thats what matters. All of you racist people with your racist comments, sorry your opinion does not matter one bit! He’s living his dream=D
