Autumn de Forest featured in today’s Entertainment section of the Los Angeles Times: The Prodigy Artist named one of Teen Vogue’s 21 Under 21 and attended last week’s Teen Vogue Summit in LA.
Elaine Welteroth was bored. For months, Teen Vogue — the magazine where she served as beauty director — had been featuring the same young women on its cover: “Rich, pretty, white bloggers in fashion.”

She urged her colleagues to consider featuring a different type of star on the cover of the glossy — or to at least ask models and actors more than just the rote promotional questions.
