Daily’s Fabulous Frozen Cocktails Advertisement

Cosmopolitan surprised me today. Something (I’m not sure what) told me to pick up the July 2011 issue and just see what kind of advertisements they had. I’ve never been a devoted reader of the magazine and just assumed that most of the ads and articles would feature white women. Boy, was I wrong! There were a number (not a majority) of ads and articles that featured black women. I kept flipping through Cosmo and found an article for Daily’s Fabulous Frozen Cocktails that depicted one woman with curly hair. Whether she looks biracial or not, her hair is curly! I don’t know about you, but this ad is pushing my idea of what it means to be natural. Can only African American women be natural? Or can bi-racial women with curly hair be considered natural, too? If so, this model definitely qualifies. If not, she just had curly hair. What do you think?
