“It happens that people have a hard time believing that I’m black because of my light skin: in fact I’m a European but I’m a black woman as well. Both my parents and my brother are dark skinned but the West Indies are a mix of genes from different countries and you never know what skin colour your baby might have: being a black beauty is not a matter of dark skin, but it’s an experience, it’s a way you understand and feel the world.”

Happy Birthday, Chrystèle!
