Black History Month on Fashion Bomb Daily: Vintage Magazine Covers

So it’s Black History Month, and we at Fashion Bomb Daily always do something stylish to commemorate the holiday.
In the past, we’ve delved into the backgrounds of designers, models, icons, trends, and even black history facts. This year, the focus is on vintage magazine covers.

We’re taking in way back to before 2000, and basking in the glory of brown beauties rocking couture and designer frocks on some of our favorite glossies.
