Why are style icons always white?

So...I was checking out Little Snob Thing (which is a beautiful italian fashion blog) and there was a poll where people had to vote their favourite fashion icon.
Allora...Stavo dando un'occhiata a Little Snob Thing (che e' un bellissimo italian fashion blog) e c'era un sondaggio per votare la propria fashion icon preferita.

Now...I'm not obsessed with fashion (although I love it) so I'm not one that drools over the famous fashionistas of the world. non sono ossessionata dalla moda (anche se la amo) quindi non sono una che impazzisce per le fashionistas famore che circolano per il mondo.

But I was disappointed that the list chose on the blog included only white skinny girls in it. Well it's not really about the skinny. It's about the white.
Ma che nella lista del blog figurino solo delle magre ragazze bianche mi ha un po' deluso. La questione non riguarda il fatto che siano magre. E' che sono bianche.

Why is everybody still SO in love only with the white girls style?
Perche' sono ancora tutti cosi' innamorati dello stile delle ragazze bianche?

I mean... this is 2011 right? How can you not have at least one black girl on a fashion list?
Voglio dire... questo e' il 2011 giusto? Come puo'non esserci neanche una ragazza nera su una fashion list?

I don't mean this as an attack to the owner of Little Snob Thing, but being a huge lover of black culture, black music, black attitude, black skin, black style I thought it was a little sad.
Questo non e' un attacco nei confronti della proprietaria di Little Snob Thing, ma essendo una grande amante della cultura black, della musica black, della black attitude, della pelle black e dello style black, ho trovato la cosa un po' triste. are some Black Women that I think have nothing to envy to white women on the style area (or any other as far as I'm concerned)!
Quindi...ecco qui alcune Donne Nere che io penso non abbiano niente da invidiare alle donne bianche nell'area stile (o in nessun altra per quanto mi riguarda)!

N.B. All the pictures have been found through Google.

Ms. Kelly Rowland. 'Cos if u thought that Beyonce was the only Diva to come out of Destiny's Child u better think again.

Monica. She's made the musical comeback of 2010 and has shown quite some people how to wear Couture (hear that Rihanna?)

Tyra Banks. From Top Model to one of the most influencial people in media of the USA (which is kinda like saying of the world) and nobody ever gives a crap about her. But I love u Tyra!!!

Queen Latifah. This woman is not only THE Queen. She's a multitalented and super-stylish goddess.

Zoe Seldana. THE Fashion Icon of 2010 as far as I'm concerned.

So this is it. Just my little 2 cents.
