It’s quite a pity that all these flawless black shiny skin, calm eyes and beautiful body frame are unreal.
World’s first “digital supermodel,” Shudu Gram is an image created by British fashion photographer 28-year-old Cameron-James Wilson using 3D image rendering software programme DAZ3D. Shudu shot to fame after a picture of her wearing bright orange lipstick was reposted on the official Instagram page of Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty with the caption; “in living color.”
Earlier, the photographer didn’t make it known that Shudu was unreal. The bio of her Instagram page which had 61,800 followers read “Who is she?”. He faced a lot of criticism for this. Wilson claims it has been wrongly reported that he was “forced” to reveal she wasn’t real, arguing that it was “never a big secret”. But when Harper’s Bazaar reached out for an interview, he “knew it was time to just clarify everything.”
“Basically Shudu is my creation, she’s my art piece that I am working on at moment,” the photographer said in the interview with Harper’s Bazaar.
“She is not a real model, unfortunately, but she represents a lot of the real models of today. There’s a big kind of movement with dark skin models, so she represents them and is inspired by them.”
